Since it was established in 1981, September 21 is the date dedicated to building up ideals of peace, non-violence and cease-fire. Today, Sunday 21 September 2014, in a world of turmoil, confusion and conflict, every part of the globe is praying for peace. On 19 September 2014, the United Nations celebrated at The Peace Bell Ceremony where the John Lennon’s legendary song “Imagine” was selected as a medium and to mark this year’s International Day of Peace, the theme is...

As young people gathered early Saturday morning as Mahe Island experienced torrential downpours we gathered in a cosy room in a primary school. The...

Hi you guys!! A lot of things are going on currently in Chile, such as political and economic reforms, and the Independence party held for pretty much the entire week.

But one piece news has caught my eye and I want to share my thoughts on it with you. Chile has an agency that collaborates with the executive branch on designing, planning, coordinat...

Each one of us loves his country. Personally, I have no problem in sacrificing my life for the good of my country, it's such an honor to me! I am sure that we all hate to see our countries suffering and we always wish that we could do something to help our nation; actually, I have no doubts at all that it's our duty and our responsibility to preserve the future of our country! I think the thing that makes me sad is seeing my motherland suffering. It's an awful feeling and I hope...

As I have mentioned in a previous post (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/the-terrorist-s-daughter---2) I have been quite fond of reading from the very early days of my life. As a kid, I would often find a book, lay down on the floor and make myself comfortable, and I could go on like this for hours. Until I was about 10 years old, my English was quite bad and I read only the Sinhala books I could get my hands on. Things changed when I found two excellent English teachers in the...


Bonjour! :) I have been quite busy physically, morally and psychologically with numerous events occurring in my life lately. I have read, witnessed, realised, wondered, thought, learnt and done a lot. I realise that my life is, indeed, a wealthy one in its own way and I give thanks for everything Life gives to me. Furthermore, what is going on in my country really strikes me and I feel it’s time to start speaking up. As my piece got too lengthy, I decided to write it into two par...

This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend, Mei Lee, for my Inspire! profile. The passion she shows for her work and her endless drive to attain her goals has always been one of the reasons I was attracted to her as a person, and I admire the consistent expressions of these traits until today. Some of her notable projects include recent work for The Kitchen Guardian and Green August which ended up being sold on DFTBA. Your name Mei Lee. Your age23 Where a...
