They plead that you may for once; Understand them with honest kindness With futile prejudice you ignore them Before they even open up to you They have so many questions in life; Seeking someone's sincere listen Behind your mask not even your eyes; Are available for their unfeigned plea They open their mouths to cry louder; For someone to their tears benignly heed You block your ears hastily dubbing them The lost generation you in fear loathe...

Recently I have had the opportunity to chair 2 or 3 events (in Morocco) which deal with youth and their participation in the society. I was delighted yet surprised to see the level of enthusiasm that was shown by the participants. One of the event was an AIESEC- Morocco initiative called "Youth Leadership Day- Morocco in 10 years time". There were speakers from all backgrounds and nationalities who spoke on issues such as Women Empowerment, Ebola, Youths in Africa, Participatio...

When the current leaders of Kurdistan get older and die… Who will lead? In the 21st century the power that is leading the world is youth's, but in Kurdistan it's Old’s. Whether it is good or bad, is a different story. The first independent Kurdish Government was declared in 1992 and after 2003 when the Baath Regime in Iraq was ended, the Region became more stable and economic growth started to raise rapidly, many doors were opened for globalization; hundreds of National...

Earth is a beautiful living planet of the Universe as the common habitat of more than 7 billion human population & millions of species of biodiversity. Our Earth provides us with food, shelter & with most of our requirements. Despite unavoidable free services provided by earth to humans we are not being able to pay off her kindness to us. Rather we humans are being cruel to our Earth by our selfish activities. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Earth provides enough to satisfy every...

-As you make steps further, menacing to engulf the human race pitilessly, we plead: Kindly spare us. - We are a flawed species, with different views. Be it a curse from God or our own negligence, we plead: Forgive us wholeheartedly. - Our tears bear testimony of the pain felt when seeing our dear ones dying, we plead: Soothe our ongoing cries. -You've shaken the world of many, taking them away with you, we plead: Blunt your axe please. - We are used to being bruised and pained,...

100 million children and young people are affected by natural disasters every year. More than half of the world’s 58 million children and youth who are out of school live in countries affected by war and violence. The majority of these children and youth are girls. When an emergency happens, many children and youth cannot go to school. An earthquake or flood could have destroyed their school and a conflict made the journey to school unsafe. When faced with a natural disaster or a conflict, chi...

The school holidays start from June 26th (national holiday) and end at the end of September. Our team took advantages of the holidays to plant trees and to take care of coconuts trees at the seaside. Coconut trees grow easily at the seaside; they protect shorelines against erosion, slow violent wind and can become a source of money too. We saw beautiful beaches on the internet and still coconut trees are always seen around. After 4-7 years of growth, coconut trees are able to give...

Hello! I am so sorry as I have been absent from VOY for a month. This being due to very hard times right now. I needed to gather myself in order to do my best and I'm back and ready.

We've all gone through many hard things, maybe many of you are in my situation in which you life has turned upside down. Life is a world of pain for everybody "...

Happy International Day of the Girl VOY fam! I look forward to a world where every youth consciously stands up for the girl child in some way. It is important to know that development impact can easily be multiplied by improving the livelihood of the girls and women in our communities. This is because girls and women have the ability to stimulate positive multiplier effects and have shown great potential to affect even more women and children. There is at least one thing you...
