The sight of schoolchildren filing into classrooms across Gaza last week was a welcome sign that in one respect at least, life in the territory is returning to some kind of normality after a traumatic summer of conflict and bloodshed. Pupils at the privately-run American International School in Gaza were back in class a week before the new academic year even began. Staff said they wanted to find a way of helping the children get back into a routine as soon as possible, so that...

The introduction of youths into political and decision-making spaces is a fairly new thing. Malaysia has made headway with this with current projects such as Parlimen Belia and similar state-led initiatives. Similarly on the rise are activities where our voices get a chance to be heard, such as MUN and youth conferences. Activity among the youth community is not unprecedented or a novel concept, neither is collective activity channelled towards a specific cause. But like their adul...

Here are some of the things I learned from school. Like how sometimes, school counsellors will ask you invasive questions, like ones regarding your sexuality, and they promise to hook you up with a conversion therapy to help you. How teachers favour some students more than others, and have no qualms assuring one of their worth while ignoring the emotional needs of the others. I learned that the peer group that’s supposed to help students with their mental health issues consisted...


From my own observations, the majority of people in my country (Zambia) do not really connect with issues whose effects are not instant. Climate change is inclusive! For as long as climate change effects are not directly affecting them, a greater part of the Zambian population gives a blind eye and a deaf ear to issues of climate change. However, many others among them, feel connected to climate related issues once they directly affect them. A practical example that may have pushed people to po...

In my country Nigeria, there is a post-university national service requirement. During my national service at North-Central Nigeria, I worked at a secondary school (high school) with almost no basic facilities. The school had only one typewriter and two shelves (supposed to be a library) with outdated brown paper books. Over a few months with my students, I came to understand the poor quality of teaching they had been exposed to, learnt to value their learning deeply, and resolved...

I don't have a habit to speak about things in a round about way, so let me straightly come to the point: As obvious as it is from my title here, I'm going to write about the necessity of the teaching of law to every citizen. In order to lay the foundation of a justice loving peaceful society, we dearly need it. What happens is real and not everybody knows about the laws of their country. Yes, only those who become graduates in it or choose it as a field of their profession get acquainted with i...

Forced marriages occur in countries like Bangladesh, Chad, Niger, Mali etc, but I think there is hope under some conditions. Some could be if a girl is educated or at least went to high school/college at some point, if she knows what's right/what's wrong, if she has a clear apprehension of what real life should be, if she has experienced enough drama to avoid things to be herself, and most importantly if her family stands by her, a strong group of friends worldwide if she's lucky e...

9 May 2014 - When it comes to addressing the many complex problems in developing countries, and ending injustice, there is no silver bullet or magical solution - but giving children access to at least nine years of quality education is about as close as we can get. Education equips young people with the knowledge and skills they need to broaden their horizons, pursue their ambitions and fulfill their potential. It better positions them to understand and protect their human righ...
