Zimbabwe: Community Strength

Posted on December 16, 2011 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Chipo is 15 years old and an orphan. Her father died in 2001 and her mother died six months ago. She is caring for her little sister, Nolly, and two brothers, Farai and Edwin, as there is no one else to look after them. There is no money for food or school fees and the landlord wants the rent they owe. Mr Gift, the store manager, offered to cancel her food bill if she would ‘go home’ with him. Last week she gave in because Farai was crying with hunger and Nolly had fainted at school.…

During the team’s SALT visits, we met a native doctor who believes in the existence of HIV/AIDS and also educated the team in is own little way, his interaction with the team was a little bit tough in the sense that this young man told us stories of many people that were sick and went to the hospital for tests, diagnosed HIV positive by the doctor’s result but the native doctor believes that it is a “family attack” which…

Hi Ukeme,

 

In response to your message, I would very much like you to attend the Global Learning Festival in India. A working group is preparing a concept note which will be finalised soon. You can use it to raise funds.

 

Regards,

Rituu

Ukeme,

     You asked about overcoming people's resistance to testing.  People have many "reasons" and experiences causing them to distrust.

     Like the public peace process itself, trust begins with relationships -- time for listening to a person's story, time for empathy, time to share your own story and deep interest in the other person.

Trust cannot be expected or demanded, because it is hard-won and requires you to show that you are trustworthy beginning with your heart connection and sincere expressions of interest in the "other."

     Of course, none of this is new to you.

     But please know that all of this is universal around our beautiful, perfectly diverse Earth.

                      Love,      Libby and Len

Dear Ukeme,

     We deeply respect how you are living your life to make life in Nigeria more healthful and disease-free.

     In parallel, we are interested in providing encouragement and tools for needed, successful face-to-face communication and authentic Dialogue with it's new quality of listening-to-learn.

     Broken communication can lead to not HIV but perhaps even more deadly disease, HRV which is Human Relationship-Deficiency Virus first expalined to us in Jos last October 2010 --

     We are presently working hard to edit a new documentary film about the success of the 200 brave Muslims and Christians in youth interfaith Dialogue -- http://traubman.igc.org/nigeria2010.htm

     Please keep on your path of excellence, Ukeme.

How do you relate a Youth Capacity Development (YCD) and Human Capacity Development (HCD) programmes?

Dear ukeme, This is simple for  me,  we as young people need to stop in many case  putting our self  away from the general population since  we  end  up their anyways, we need to start thinking holistically when approaching  to address Youth Capacities,  the Overarching Vision/Dream  is the  HCD,  but  we can first  stat  at  looking at YDC once we have  clear strategies, we them look at other most-at-risk/vulnerable communities (Sexual minorities, Women etc) But not for getting that  with in the Youth population their is these vulnerable groups... Easy to say HCD and YDC is a ll in all one concept  used at different level  based on the populace 

What is your based-line for working with the Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC)?

 Not sure what u asking here, But  i do not work with OVC's so i  need some clarity.. i think  my  understanding of OVC might be a bit different  from yours...because of regional difference. Just to say that  I am a UN Volunteer and  i am attached to an NGO call Volunteer Youth Corps and  their  vision is the contribute to youth and Children for them to have better quality of life and access to Services. I have however worked with OVC in the past but   it's  based on different  things HIV, Living conditions, Self-esteem issues,  or some other social issues   trying to  delay or  just empower for better  future
