I have had the most interestingly fascinating encounters with children this year alone. In the process, I have learnt quite a lot about them. Children are mostly not trying to hide their feelings. They are as easy to read as their books. Perhaps the only things not as easy are their questions. They ask you things you think you know in the most ambiguous and complicated way. So you probably understand the silence and listlessness that ensued after I got the question: "Aunty, wh...

Home sweet home says the lost child, Who will take me in, he wonders lost in thoughts, Seeing comfort all around him, but has none Seeing men waste there lots But none to his side, Tears rolls down from his cheeks for pain of hunger O lord he cries just take me home, But he gives life a second thought If he can take care of the sparrow he can take of me, Oh lost child don’t give up yet, The lord has heard your Cries and He is at the door of your rest...

A child is born, a resource to our world; Her first thought is not the right vote; In her mother’s arms she’s curled; Her eyes full of hope. She cries because she is hungry; Her mother’s heart aches, For she has no food to give her; But it is that which she needs. A right to food, a right to a home, A right to feel safe, a right to roam; The world awaits her vote but she awaits a meal; It is that which the world must give her. Her mother’s love, a warm plate...

Rape- is a word which is supposed to be wiped out of existence. Most girls in the rural and urban areas extensively suffer from this dreadful experience. It's a shame to see our young girls go through this uncomfortable act. Raped girls can get STDs, unwanted pregnancy and some may die as a result of their experiences. When parents mutter words, ungodly things happen. And when girls feel reluctant in certain situations, they become victims to this cause. I blame no one. It is simply because ther...

“Many, many people are stranded, scattered all over the place,” Mr. Atem said. “This is really devastating because we tried to go back and help this country. It’s really a sad situation.”

AWERIAL, South Sudan — When Jacob Atem was just a young boy, his parents were killed during the long war for independence from Sudan, and he found himself among the legions of orphaned children known as the Lost Boys wandering hundreds of miles across this part of Africa. Resettled and educated in the United States, he returned to the newly independent nation of South Sudan two years ago to open a clinic in the village where he was born. But the promise of this young country...

Hola people, This is the first time I am writing for this and I wanted to write about mental disorders which are affecting kids nowadays. Each and every a child born is special, which includes children born with any complication or disorder. Everyone has a right to have a proper childhood. If you know what I mean, like proper studies and healthcare. Put all that aside and what a child really needs is love to grow and be healthy. This is where parents come and play their part. B...

I wrote a speech about Child Labor. I had the opportunity to deliver to a group of people about two years ago in a competition sponsored by the Rotary Club. Although prizes and medallions were far from the glitz of this serious event, I wanted to share with you all my speech. It is, perhaps, one of the most passionate addresses I've given, regardless of the text which lies so banally on this blank screen. Let me know what you think! Child Labor and the Never Ending Plague of...
