Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
In my view a world that works for everyone is a world of peace and prosperity; a world where we can accept each other without race ethnic or religious distinction. I mean a world without injustice and poor governments, a world where there will be no racism and intolerance. World where Human Rights should be respected. If there is justice, if there is no corruption, if the resources are shared equitably, we can avoid many conflicts.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problems facing the world today are: poverty, prostitution, juvenile delinquency, corruption, robbery, crime and war. Poverty is everywhere in our nations and some people don’t even have shelter. People die of starvation every day. In order to get money somebody prostitutes and others steal. It is awful. The case of juvenile delinquency is also very alarming nowadays. Instead of going to school or attending professional centers in order to prepare their future, many young people are in the street, using alcohol and drugs and doing bad things.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
To reduce poverty, it is important to bring people to assume their individual responsibility, their personal growth and development. Even if you help someone with goods and money all the time, that situation could not help him to overcome his poverty. To solve prostitution, robbery and most of another problems mentioned, people have to be educated in order to change their minds. Everyone should have a sense of values. And it is important to inculcate good human values in people in their infancy (childhood). Education is very important. I think Government should invest more in education and make any child go to school. Avoid injustice in our societies can banish problems like crimes and wars.
My name is ADONOU Adjoa Brigitte. I am Togolese from Kévé, in the south west region of Togo. I live in Lomé, capital city of Togo.
