50 years ago our forefathers fought hard until Zambia gained her independence from British rule. The question we the youths of today should be asking ourselves is “What is it that we are going to be remembered for 50 years from now?” or “How will future generations judge our today’s actions?” We the youths of today’s generation are faced with a lot of challenges ranging from unemployment, corruption, AIDS pandemic, adverse effects of climate change and others.

Is it a child’s responsibility to feed his family or siblings? More especially if the child is only 12-years-old? Poverty being a state of lacking, certain needs like food and clothes drags children into child labour. In Luanshya, a small town in Zambia, there are homes that are child-headed and some children are street vendors which makes it hard for them to get fed or go to school. If you were to walk in the streets that lead to the industrial area in Luanshya where scrap m...

THE VOICE OF SOCIAL MEDIA# In today’s world people can communicate over great distances. You can even chat with someone who is on the other side of the globe as though you were in the same room. All this is possible because of social media. Social media is an essential tool in the work that we do as advocates for change and if anything voices of youth is a social networking site. Not long ago I had the privilege of attending the Zambia Children’s Climate Conference 7 and o...

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...

Zambia is known to have one of the highest deforestation rates in the world. This is mainly because most of its people depend highly on wood for fuel. Charcoal and timber production are the main causes of deforestation as well as bad farming methods such as the "Chitemen" System also referred to as the 'Slush and Burn' method. This is a case where farmers clear a piece of land by burning, to use for crop production and once the land proves unfertile, it is left bare, exposed and un...

Even though they are sometimes cleared or picked up, it still poses a health hazard for people living or worning near these areas as they act as a host for bacteria and other diseases like cholera. The pr...

It also worsens illnesses such as lung disease, asthma, heart diseases and other chronic d...

Road maintenance is vital to the well being of so many societies across Zambia - especially a good road network. Kitwe is not an exception; it being one of the major mining town on the copper belt province. If roads are in a bad state this raises major concern for the local people. Especially when transporting copper and other goods outside the province. Faulty roads were one of the major challenges in so many communities but due some positive actions that are being taken now, th...
