Time to pay back! Support Radi-Aid for Norway!!!

Video

Brilliant campaign!!!

Imagine if every person in Africa saw the “Africa for Norway” video and this was the only information they ever got about Norway. What would they think about Norway?

If we say Africa, what do you think about? Hunger, poverty, crime or AIDS? No wonder, because in fundraising campaigns and media that’s mainly what you hear about.

The pictures we usually see in fundraisers are of poor African children. Hunger and poverty is ugly, and it calls for action. But while these images can engage people in the short term, we are concerned that many people simply give up because it seems like nothing is getting better. Africa should not just be something that people either give to, or give up on.

The truth is that there are many positive developments in African countries, and we want these to become known. We need to change the simplistic explanations of problems in Africa. We need to educate ourselves on the complex issues and get more focus on how western countries have a negative impact on Africa’s development. If we want to address the problems the world is facing we need to do it based on knowledge and respect.

A drop of inspiration! Make THE difference!

If you want to change the world.. but never really know how to start.. feel overwhelmed about all the challenges and difficulties you know you will have to come across..  please check out this little inspiring video…. and learn that all you have to do.. is to start small!

This film is based on a true story. In 1986 a football team that lived on a little island in the south of Thailand called “Koh Panyee”. It’s a floating village in the middle of the sea that has not an inch of soil. The kids here loved to watch football but had nowhere to play or practice. But they didn’t let that stop them. They challenged the norm and have become a great inspiration for new generations on the island.

A question of perspective (UK Aid review)

Recently the UK Aid has been reviewed which created some noise in the international development field.

Quite a lot of British people do believe the UK has a lot of internal problems, and therefore should invest less abroad, to concentrate their wealth in sorting out their own problems first…

Well, ONE went out on the streets to talk to people about UK International Aid, and turns out it’s not as much money as some think.

Watch the really awesome clip, and share it among your networks!
