The Pope has spoken about 2014. He calls for change, peace and unity across the planet. In my opinion, I believe the Pope to be as demanding as every other citizen of the Earth. Many skeptics thought 2013 was bad, unlucky even, because of the dreaded number 13. I think the bad quality of a year can only be attributed to the bad quality of the people who create it. And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...

When speaking about schools and girls, there are two big problems which perhaps threaten the security of girls and the environment. These problems ocurr during menstruation, and deal with unhygienic water and sanitation. How do these problems correlate? Here, we will not discuss menstruation in detail because that is for female-only topics. Menstruation is always faced by some girls in school who are teenagers and in puberty phases. In these phases, most girls sit and study in school. During men...

When it comes to discussions on human rights, everyone focuses on the right to life, right to clothing, right to housing, right to work, equality, freedom of expression and so on. No one really cares about electricity. Can you imagine a day without electricity? Oh, come on! We get depressed if we don’t get internet for a day! The problem is it is considered a privilege. When we talk about electricity, we think of it as a “want” such as for using computers, televisions and...

Why is it only "Migrants" are treated so cruelly. I was really shocked to see people in such vulnerable conditions. It is a very sensitive issue that nearly 12000 people including children, women, elders have migrated from the north-eastern states just in search of a job and are exploited when they reach their destination. These people have no proper shelter, food, health and sanitation and not even basic education for their children, which are all considered to be basic "HUMAN RIG...

HIV is the leading cause of death and disease among women aged 15-49 years worldwide. Globally, there are equal proportions of women and men living with HIV, although this varies from region to region. Gender practices, norms and values also influence sexuality, reproduction and relationships. For example, unequal gender relations make it difficult for women and girls to make choices about sex, as well as increasing their vulnerability to violence, early marriage and adverse sexual...

Since the 19th century, many English-speaking peoples have adopted the custom of circumcision, primarily for medical reasons. In modern medical practice, circumcision of males is a minor operation usually performed in infancy for hygienic purposes. It is currently estimated that about two-thirds of male babies born in the United States are circumcised. The incidence among non-Jewish populations of continental Europe, Scandinavia, and South America is lower. The medical case for...

Circumcised men can still become infected with the virus and, if HIV-positive, can infect their sexual partners. Promoting and providing safe male circumcision does not replace other interventions to prevent heterosexual transmission of HIV but provides an additional strategy. In all three randomized controlled trials HIV incidence was considerably lower in the intervention (circumcised men) than in the control group (uncircumcised men), but nevertheless remained high overall (...

Yong – Dakpemyili is in the Tamale metropolis. It is about 16 km away from Tamale. The Tech Girls club in the Yong Dakpemyili primary school is taking the lead to ask duty bearers to provide a health facility (clinic) for the people of Yong. It is captured in article 24 of the UN convention that “Children have the right to good quality care, to clean water, nutritious food and clean environment, so that they will stay healthy.” We are making our calls based on this provis...

The Tech Girls club of Sakasaka Primary is happy to share the plight of pupils in the school with the rest of the world on the poor sanitation and health hazards they face at school. The windows of our classrooms and doors are broken and as a result, some scrupulous people in the school community defecate in the classrooms in the night. Pupils have to spend valuable time cleaning and washing the feces out every morning. Aside from this, the choked gutters in the school often gi...
