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...

Often, I feel as though I can’t accomplish much- I’m not creative, I’m not a tech genius, and I’m not a brilliant writer… It feels as though I can’t do much! But even when we feel helpless and useless, unable to change the world or make our mark on the world, the truth is, every single one of us has immense potential to make a difference. How? As Albert Pike aptly summarized, “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and i...

Do you volunteer or do community work? How do you contribute to your community? A good way to help out is volunteering. Volunteering is amazing whether it's at an animal shelter or at an elderly home. The thing about volunteering is that you have to do it from your heart, why be a poser and pretend to care? When you help out whether it's just smiling at an elder or petting a dog you are helping out in the world. You may be thinking, but why should I volunteer...

Deforestation is one of the problems which ensues in some forested countries. Due to the problem, not only are forested countries facing troubles, but industrialized countries with little forest are in trouble too. Yet, this problem is included in some drafts of the international agreements such as Bali Road Map by UNFCCC; and REED by UNFAO, and UNDP, UNREDD. On the international level, most strategies are needed to be discussed in the long term. On the other hand, the agreement of each co...

This morning as I ate my breakfast in front of the television, I watched one of the programs on MetroTv. At first, I thought that this program was just another travel program, but as I watched it longer, I found a unique vocabulary that I have never heard before. It is voluntourism. Voluntourism, I guess you could already guess, comes from the terms volunteering and tourism. How do these things work together? Well, this is how the story goes: The host visited Papua, one of the...

Thank God, 2014 has started well but in order to make better progress it is very important for me to review the year 2013; not to live in the past, but to understand it and use it to create a better future. In the words of Soren Kierkgaard “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” 2013 was not a perfect year for me but it was still great and better than 2012. It started with so much optimism about lots of things I planned for myself but somehow t...

I woke up on Saturday morning and I felt sooo good! I was overjoyed at the fact that I finally had the opportunity to be a Children’s Champion for UNICEF. I had a visitor around my house that morning and she said “Oh are you going shopping for the day?” I replied with a huge smile on my face and said “Nope I am going to a UNICEF training event”. I made my way to the session feeling confident that I knew where I was going and I then I got lost! I went into a hotel, a...
