Youth are the hope of every country, they represent a major power. If we could use this power for the good of the country, I assure you that the future will be such a great one. But if we try to create obstacles and to prohibit those youth from building their country, I can say we won’t get anything, we will be like someone who is playing with the fire! I guess if the leaders of a country don't try to encourage youth, these leaders must expect a disaster in the future. They w...

Depression is often treated lightly - around school, we can often hear classmates throwing the term around lightly and claiming they are "depressed" when they have extra homework, received a bad grade, or when they get told off by a teacher. "Depressed" has become just another synonym for "sad" or "disappointed". But depression is a real mental condition that is incredibly difficult to deal with. It doesn't just affect the mind; it can also affect the body, and one's well-being....

Hi everyone! First of all let me say I’m very sorry for my absence, but I’ve been caught up between school starting and volunteering and other great, educational events. And I want to tell you about one of these! It is called “Seara de carte”, in Romanian, or in English, “The book evening”. I had the chance to get kind of close to the organizer of this event and so, I interviewed her about this project and many other aspects. (She is actually the one I choose for my...

Imagine that you greet a person in the morning and suddenly you find out the person’ is dead in the evening. I passed through such a feeling a few days ago. My friend was hit by a motorcycle while crossing a road. She died instantly. I saw few quite cruel photos of the event. Her name was Nadiya which translation into English is “Hope”. The girl studied with me in the university. She was making research about the history of her native village. She was crossing a road...

As the world celebrated the International Day of Peace on September 21, I found myself thinking about soldiers and the dangerously volatile conditions they work in. With the spate of attacks in different parts of the world, they have to confront this as a normal working environment, uncertain of the outcome. What’s more? Troops are now being deployed to fight deadly Ebola. As I began to feel deep appreciation for soldiers, I sought to find out about Brig.-Gen Benjamin Ad...

In Sri Lanka, we suffered from the atrocities and grieved over losses in a civil war that lasted 3 decades. But Sri Lankans were fortunate to see the end of this conflict in the year 2009, owing to the sacrifices made by our armed forces and the bold stance of anti-terrorism of our policy makers. Five years after the war, the Sri Lankan government is investing heavily in reconciliation, rebuilding and development. We're increasingly focusing on beautification of cities; getting rid...

Youth unemployment in Zambia is a national crisis that needs immediate attention. The time is now to transform the unemployment dilemma the youth way. We the youth have to take the reins in our hands and choose to do something about our situation rather than waiting for others to do something for us. Unless the youth work together and remain determined to do something about the unemployment crisis, it will simply remain a discussion discussed over and over. We have the potent...
