Do the youths really know about money? We all know the definition of money as a medium of exchange or a legal tender for buying and selling. We all want to make a lot of money, youths are known with having many ideas bubbling within them, but it seems implementation is impossible because of lack of funds. For lack and insufficiency to be reduced and perhaps eradicated especially among the youths, there is an urgent need to understand some things we can do with money. These...

When we are children, a lot of us grow up seeing poverty if not being a victim of it. As we step into adolescence, we all want to change the world into an ideal one. As we grow older, the fire of youth begins to cool down. And at last, one sits in the old age corner of life hoping for some change. It takes a brave heart to change the cycle above and actually bring change. It takes a intelligent mind to know that to choose not to litter is a global initiative on its own. Today...

There is a dream in my heart: dream to help less fortunate children when I grow up and do it myself. I was born with all the facilities. I did not have any trouble of building my esteem fulfilling my needs. Now I have grown up. I can see the world. When I see the word, one thing has stopped in my heart. When I was a child, I had all my basic needs fulfilled. I did not have any trouble finding food, clothing or shelter. But there are thousands of children who do not have the child...

Two Lives/Two Miles Apart One of the main problems in Hong Kong is the massive wealth gap that exists between the rich and the poor. As it is an international financial centre, Hong Kong is the home of Asia’s richest man (Li Ka Shing), and a surging number of millionaires. A recent statistic shows that one in every 38 people in Hong Kong is a US millionaire. Glancing at Hong Kong’s towering skyline, modern buildings, high class shopping centres, and technological developmen...

In Hong Kong, I believe that refugees are a group that require much more help. The UN defines a refugee as “a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster”. Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "everyone has the right to seek and enjoy asylum abroad from persecution." However, whilst Hong Kong is a signatory to the convention against torture (which has led to hundreds of asylum claims...

They say “money makes the world go round” and that “education is the key to success”. With money invested in important sectors like education there can be development. That is why if I were a millionaire I would invest more in education and youth empowerment. I would invest in education especially in girl child education. I would make sure that the majority of girls access education because they say that “when you educate a girl child you educate a nation”. This is...

As the proverb goes: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. If I were a millionaire I would teach the world how to fish. I use the phrase how to fish metaphorically, we do not need so many fishermen. Poverty is one of the greatest problems of the world. A millionaire alone will not be able to eradicate poverty but the investment in the human race can be a big step in the right direction. Why does poverty exist?...

Have you ever wondered about what you would do with millions of dollars? Would you buy a new house, or your dream car? Even though these things are immensely attractive, if I were a millionaire, I would invest it in education. The building of schools, offering scholarships for further education, and giving schools the funding they need to improve the quality of education. I would focus my money especially on giving girls the resources they need to receive a quality education....

My name is Kelvin Chikwa. I am 17 years old from Lusaka, Zambia. I am at Munali secondary school.Here are some of the reasons I think Zambia is developing poverty and hunger.......................... Dependency Syndrome: In as much as foreign aid is essential for the development of country we should begin to look elsewhere to become more economically independent. Forty-four years after independence we are still dependent on the West for support. We can hardly stand on our own f...
