100 years ago, the Panama Canal was opened for business linking two channels of trade for the first time ever in a more efficient and appropriate manner.

The Panama Canal was not only an economic venture but also a symbol of the United States’ growing involvement with Latin A...


When I saw Assignment #5 – to create an 'Inspire!' portrait by interviewing a young person who has an interesting job or career and who you think would be an inspiration for youth – in the VOY Blogger Info Packet that my Internship Manager sent me last June, two people instantly came into my mind. I am writing about one of them today. I thought it would be best if I do away with the ‘Inspire!’ profile format, so here it goes. He is Siddhartha Nanayakkara. I first met...

What impact do social networking sites like Facebook have on our lives? Some might say there are more advantages compared to disadvantages. However, as it changes our lives, it is more social and personal and does not add much impact on our development. Instead we should focus on platforms like Voices of Youth and Connect where real issues are discussed that affect each and every individual. Solutions can be arrived at and young people get to experience the real issues in the w...

This is such a perfect week for me, because I got a chance to join to the very 1st UNICEF Activate; Innovating for Children – Innovating for Equity by UNICEF Indonesia to celebrate the 25th Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We wanted to be inspired, to be involved and to be motivated...

'How has life been treating you?' That was one of the ways I said 'hi' to my friends and foes, until some years ago when it dawned on me to rephrase it into 'how have you been treating life?' My personal response to this was: I am highly terrific and I am giving life an awesome treat! Encarta Dictionary defined "Life" as the QUALITY that makes living things and plants different from dead organisms and inorganic matter. Are you defined by that quality or do you define that quality? Several peopl...
