CAMING BACK AT HOME

The way that leads to my Home ''Rwanda''

  There is nothing wrong in the life, but the truth is:  they will not  in and of themselves bring you authentic happiness…  I can ‘nt imagine how much is the feeling and pleasure you get, when you meet again yours family, friends, place, environment that you had missed for long time.   

Rwandese social life

That is really happiness and have made my life so wonderful: otherwise this was as well a way to improve how is very extensive and considerable what call ”Patriotism” wherever you should live so far your home, always you still feel some things missed…. Nothing is comparable to the happiness you feel as long as you should improve the relationships, get involved to your origine community and share your joy to your close friends and family.

NORWAY’S CONSTITUTION DAY 17 May 2011

 Each Year on 17th of May  Norwegians fill the streets with cheers and flags in celebration of Norway’s constitution, adopted in 1814; in all nationwide. It’s high day which every one looks very happy and enjoy as much possible he can.The day start as usually by the children’s parades, made up of school classes marching with the school band through the local community. Most of the children carry small Norwegian flags and all the route is lined enthusiastic onlookers.  For many this is the one day of the year where the supply of ice cream and hot dogs in endless. Most people dress in their best national dress “The bunad” on this occasion.  The bunad varies in appearance from region to region and the magnificient sight of national costumes from all the city even all the country as one of the raison why this day represents a celebration of norwegian traditional and history.  By the way it was not only the Norwegian who had dressed in their national dress, there was also others nationality, like  Danish which they have almost same costume, heavy coat, same colour as they have  on their flag blue, Red and white as well their language it’s almost similar ,… May is the month when spring really bloom in Norway I should say in all scandinavia country and each one feel like happy, safe,… where more particularly the children look so cheerful and ask whatever they want  like :  icecream and eat as much they can.  However this day is Norway’s national and constitution day (signed 1814)  is celebrated as the most norwegian there is.  Nationalisme, Patriotisme (after the occupation during world war two and 100 year of union with sweden) and of course the signing of their constitution and as well the spring time after a long dark and cold winter.

SEASON OF LENT IN CHRISTIAN CHURCH FROM MARCH TO APRIL  

 The season of Lent in Christian churches around the world begin with service on Ach Wednesday (Kwisiga ivu in our mother tongue)  to April.  Then month of April is annually a good time as christian whereby we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord (Jesus Christ) on Easter Sunday, this year it will be on 24 April 2011.  As Christian we believe that Jesus Christ came back to life, or was raised from dead, three days after his death on the cross.    But here in Europe I realised that there are some thing as confusion regarding of  what Easte Sunday is all about??  For some Easter Sunday it’s about the Easter Bunny, colorefully decorated Easter eggs, Easter eggs hunts,… whereas in Ireland a young Lamb is one of the symbole of Easter.   By the way most people understand that Easter sunday has some thing to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the christian faith, Easter come to mean the celebration of the resurrection of Christ.  It is the oldest christian holiday and the most important day of the church year because of the signification of the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the events upon which christianity is based. Easter Sunday is preceded  by the season of Lent 40 days periode of fasting and repentance in Holy week and followed by a 50 day Easter.

VISIT FROM NOVGOROD ON 14 APRIL 2011

Faciliting in First Aid Instruction on 02rd March 2011

 At Arendal Red Cross House, the Rescue Team had planned to give instructions about First Aid course to more than  sixty Participants who have differents nationalities. It was interesting and curious.  First Aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury,  It is usually performed by a non-expert person means any person who had trained, to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment.   It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.  From 10Am to 2Pm we have divided in two group to facilitate a way and task  information about it.

All participants seem to be  interesting and among of them had little bit  knowledge for far a way.   A course has started by ABC instruction stands of Airway, Breathing and Circulation.  They got  CPR  Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is also a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies including heart attack or near drawning, in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped,…  In general to have First Aid Knowledge is very important in whatever life and anywhere because the difference between doing something and doing nothing  could be save someone’s life.

  This wednesday inKafe Kameleon (Red Cross women group) we have celebrated  New Year for Iraqi or Iranian. Normaly they celebrated every 21st March annually.  Holding together from 6Pm to 8Pm at Arendal Red Cross House,  it was interesting through theirs origine story which is called Persian New Year it’s depending of how they call it either Norooz , Navruz or Nowruz celebrations whereby many countries of central of Asia and western Asia observed and celebrated it; particulary Iran, Irak, Albania, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Syria, Turkey, Armenia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, part of India…  Nowruz  marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar.

The celebration is truly old, the ancient Iraqis used the Luna Year and they celebrated on the day of the astronomical verna equinox which usually is on March 21 means the Sun is  observed to be directly over the equator, and the north and the south poles of the Earth lie along the solar terminator; sunlight is evenly divided between the north and the south hemispheres. They said normally the preparation begins a month prior to the festival where people do house cleaning, plant trees, make new dresses, paint eggs, make great variety of national cuisine, fried kishmish (raisins) and nuts (govurga),  several lighted candles one for each member of the household, a few branches of Yas is used in almost all old Iraqi ceremonies ,smal tradition earthenware  water jugs filled with water,… In general each items had meaning and symbolise their events.  The evening was very interesting and I never knew others new years celebrations except the normal New Year celebration of Roman Calendar made by 365days called Gregorian Calendar. By the way there others as The Chinese New Year, The vietnamese New Year, The Tibatan N.Y, The Assyrian N.Y, Tamil N.Y, Kutchi N.Y,…

CHILD SOLDIERS WEEK – MEETING WITH TROMØY GROUP

As we are on child soldiers week, yesterday 07th february, we had a meeting with international youth group in Arendal Red Cross House to talk about child soldier issues and planned what we should contribute on 12th february at the Red Hand Day.  We had time of presentation means power point and movie with story of some children who had been  soldiers in their life.

Therefore  it’s understandable to stop this manipulation of children and improve on the contrary their life, respect their right as protection, education, fondness,… Forasmuch as they are the most precious and fragile things in the world.  While as one goes along the number of child soldiers every day increase  in worldwide and more than three hundred thousand children Boys and Girls under the age 18 are abducted  or forced into fighting wars;  used as commanders, fighters, detectors, porters, sex slaves to guarantee daily food, money, survival,… These children are sent to destructive military battles, they are reduced to being slaves for their commanders; female child soldiers often become victims of sexual abuse.  Although, it’s unbelievable and horrific, children are not soldiers.  We have to protest using child soldiers;  and contribute on Red Hand day (12th february) as symbol to say no to child recruitment and the use of child soldiers. It’s will be an effective way to put pressure on gorvenments and non-governmental armed groups which use child soldiers. Those who still recruit people younger than 18 years of age should no longer be exempt from punishnment.

 Stop using child soldiers  

 

 ENJOYING QUIZ GAME WITH HISØY GROUP 10 February 2011

 This last thursday we enjoyed well with same youth member of Red Cross multinational group, we got before instructions about how they should be   member of group and we was impatient to find out what Magnus had planned as quiz games.  Afterwards a quiz has been enrolled good divided in five groups by two person;  the goal was to find out the names of differents drawing with three minutes by question which comprise of  six questions; it was looks like a really kids games but it was interesting and funny even if there was same difficultes questions like to find the symbol of different Aust-Agder Comune.  Otherwise, those time means that we should not ignore  the way to be happy of entertainment as hobby because it’s very important in our life and it was as well a way to know and communicate each other.

RED HAND DAY ON 12th February 2011

On saturday at Arendal city in front of Culture House we had made stand with Tromøy youth group from twelve o’clock to three PM in order to contribute in the initiative to stop the use of child soldiers ” International Red Hand Day” about en hundre tretten red hand agree by soaking their hand to red colour and getting stain on a tablecloth in order to refuse the recruitment and use of children under 18 in armed conflicts by armed groups even regular government forces. They were curious to know what happen with almost citizen around with one red hand and after message;  they are agreed directly and did also. It was successful day. I should say it’s since 2002 the Red Hand Day has been celebrated annually and worldwide whereby it’s way to draw attention to the situation of child soldiers.

 

RESCUE EXERCISE IN GRANESTUA PLACE ON 16th February 2011

Formidable and impressible way system they done. I should say they are Expert Rescue Volunteer Team.

NEW YEAR INTENTION 2011

Each year at 00:00 we celebrate throughout the world the end and beginning of New Year. Why did we celebrate it? Did we recognize that among of us are sick for long time whether in the hospital or at home , other are victim of injustice, violence, war, failed their life and doesn’t be able to enjoy the day? 

Do we cast back of our achievement  and effort we made until now?   Do we able to acknowledge wonderful landscape, marvellous creature around us? Do we know who we are and what we have? What we need and goal of this new Year?The solution and Resolution are when we resolve never to do something again.  We set an intention and follow through with a determination to succeed. Easy to spent some quiet time really thinking about some realistic goals, the real life in the whole wide world, what matter, issues through the lack of peace, poverty, natural disaster, despairing, sickness,… and think what we could contribute to support on.  For instance take time to visite or talk to some of your friends, family, neighbour who is dispirited, do anything else you think will be meaningful; may be this action will probably raise their spirit and show that you know what happening and your assistance. It’ ll give you a little bit  lesson about life  and make you happy of your action.   It’ll be way to reach your goal, instead of finding reason of your weakness lesser than other; and try to be open to change, to meeting new people, say yes to opportunity and yes to learning along the way. Afterwards, try to respect everyone, given your time and make sure that you will likely be thankful for the time you had together and make your way.

November Activity 2010

KILANDSENTERET 5th November to 7th November

Migration & Child Soldier Course

We started our first week of November by attending Migration and Child Soldier Course with sixteen Youth volunteer included in three youth group of Arendal and 2 youth from Kragerø (Tellemark) from 5th to 7th at Kilandsenteret.

The both course were interesting : Migration given by Lene Lad member of National Youth Board responsable of migration and communication with vieuw to inform young youth about the humanitarian consequences of conflict, natural disaster, why the people move within and beyond the borders, the cause and consequence of migration insofar as they could be involved to take responsability to spread the importance of Human Right guideline and take part in making mobilize action either as arranging compaign, making posters in order to implore the demeanour of Norwegian where the young people migrant are neglected and carry out activity together, that it’s will be way to stay with unity and peace country

With Child Soldier movie, we couldn’t imagine how it’s so sad and unbeleivable to see young children ignorent, innocent between 8 to 15year old even 5 involved in military campaign and treat as adult kidnapped or lured by the promise of food, protection, better life and serve as combattants or porters, spies, detectors, sexual slaves especially young girl are raped. This worst action have to be stopped, Young youth Norwegian had took part to fight those manipulation and support on Protocol to the convention on the Rights of the childs which prohibiting it. It is as well possible despite the social and moral wound of war, those child soldier could be heal, get education, reconciliation, family integration, protection, culture support and be integrated with equal rights in the society. Nevertheless, every young or Parents throughout the world has role to spread those action even if there many organisation behind this injury recruitment which try to set out International convention on the Rights of the childs.

POLITICS MIGRATION AT HARADSHEIM 12th November to 14th Novermber

About 40 Young Youth volunteer from different Local Red Cross youth Group invited to participate on Migration trainning made up of different organization course such as BURO (Barne Og Ungdomsrådet i Oslo), NRC (Norwegian Refugees Council), NOAS (the Norwagian Organization Asylum Seekers)… in order to talk and give them knowledge about Young Children asylum seekers and Asyluum Seekers life in global. Can you know the reason or consequence to be refugees as young children which they couldn’t decide to be subject of their situation. They must have right to enjoy their own childhood either as attention to the rights of special protection and care, tenderness, right to have biological parents & human identity as well as the basic needs for food, schoolfees, health care,…

As their goals are to response to children the basic needs, to assist persons displaced due to conflict, to achieve durable solutions and to fulfil their rights, to provides legal aid or welfare assistance to persons who seek and/or have been granted asylum status those organizations (BURO, NRC, NOAS, …) have given an overvieuw on in order to help Red Cross Volunteer to take part and assiste of those children asyluum seekers issues through teambuilding, games,… What they could do themself in their Red Cross Local activity, the way they should use to help those asylum seekers in integration life. The trainning was very interesting.

VISIT KRISTIANSAND MUSEUM 16th November

Leave from Arendal to Kristiansand town at 5Pm with almost ten Young Youth from Multinational Red Cross Group and we took 1 hour on the road to Kristiansand Museum. The visit was very interesting and so sad, I didn’t know the Norwegian History, how they have been subject and victim of the horrific conflicts during the 2nd War World 1933-1945 of Hitler’s Racial ideology; the horrible system he did to kill Jews and those who were tight on them, the extermination camp installed.

How approximately 6million Jewish Men, Women and Children were systematically murdered in those extermination or death camps located in Eastern Europe. It so disagreeable the Genocide did name THE NAZI GENOCIDE OF THE JEWS, aside this Jews Genocide, there was as well Armenia Genocide in 1915, Guatemala Genocide in 1982, Bosnia Genocide in 1995 and in our Country Rwanda Genocide 1994 where Million people died in the space of 100day killed by grenade, machette,.. horrible action; in this time the sudanese in darfur undergo the persecution, those horrible conflict kind of Genocide have to be stopped and Human Right Organization even other Society Organization behind try to set out their own power and applicate the Humanity Convention, to protecte the victim.
