1CO2e-coin for fundraising linking up with the UN International Years
A bio-plastic coin in the form of a money-coin with references to the UN International Years of Commemorance and the CO2e-certificates of the Emission Trading System under the UNFCCC-United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The toolkit is the result of a series of Leadership Workshops with Youth, Africans and People of the Diaspora around fundraising for CO2e-reducing projects where the issue was that the groups still needed the capital to buy the first windturbine/trees/... and start-up capital before they were able to attract risk capital and loans. The toolkit allows locals to link-up with their diaspora and willing people in these new homelands to jointly act against Climate Change, create sustainable jobs and take their project globally.

Fatmata Caulker Background about the case: Fatmata Caulker, a two and half year old child of Hendebu village went missing on the 5th of October 2008 in the Kori Chiefdom of Moyamba District, Southern part of Sierra Leone. According to the parents of the victim, Wilfred Caulker and Mami Caulker, the child was playing around the neighborhood and eventually got lost. The victim Fatmata Caulker was in an unknown location for three days. After several searches the victim remains undiscovered. With worries and stress, the parents made an official report to the village head man Mr. Mohamed Swaray and the matter was reported to the Section Chief from where they were asked to make a police report, eventually, an official report was made about the missing of the child at the Taiama police station from which statements were obtained from both the father and the mother of the victim. However, the village headman and the Section Chief hired the service of a native doctor to find the missing child. Mr. Ndovah who was hired as the native doctor gave his consent to find the child, and in the process the child was surprisingly located in an isolated bush striped naked with a small hoe hanging on her soldier and roots in her hands, a small wound on her forehead and arm was also discovered. The child was brought to the village and the perpetrator of this act “Sundima” was named by the native doctor who later attests to the fact that he was responsible for the act. The matter was taken to the police station were the alleged perpetrator was interrogated and statement was obtained from him and both his wife and daughter in the Taiama police station and the matter was later taken to the Moyamba police station being the District headquarter were both the parents of the victim and the alleged perpetrator and family was taken. After several investigations into the matter Fatmata Caulker was denied access to justice and the police commander dismissed the alleged perpetrator and the matter was left unabated, the parents of the victim became unsatisfactory and worried about the life of their child who has taken three days in the bush and need an assurance of their child’s life. Recent Abnormalities about the victim • Always scared to associate with other people except his parents, she is afraid to see the face of a man. • Fatmata Caulker convulses once on awhile and no medical attention had been given to her since the act was done. • Her psychological perception about relating with people has changed. Recent update. Conscience international have visited the home of the victim and have discovered detail information about the kidnapped child from the parents and local neighborhood.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 1
O Módulo I traz um pouco da história da idéia de Direitos Humanos, e como esse conceito surgiu para enfrentar pequenos e grandes conflitos, do dia-a-dia das pessoas. Você conhecerá a Declaração Universal dos Direitos Humanos, quais os princípios que a inspiraram e as razões que levaram as pessoas a se mobilizar em defesa de um conjunto de direitos universais.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 10
“Todos os seres humanos nascem livres e iguais em dignidade e em direitos. Dotados de razão e de consciência, devem agir uns para com os outros em espírito de fraternidade” (Artigo 1º da Declaração Universal dos Direitos Humanos)

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 2
Neste módulo vamos discutir os conflitos e as formas como podemos enfrentá-los: através da violência ou da não-violência. Também vamos ver o conceito de agressividade.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 3
Neste módulo, vamos falar de três direitos humanos fundamentais: o direito à vida, o direito à saúde e o direito à alimentação adequada. Convidamos você, a partir de agora, a pensar um pouco sobre o significado desses direitos. Que conflitos o povo enfrenta para ter os seus direitos garantidos? Como lutar para que eles sejam respeitados?

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 4
Favelas, Carlos Drummond de Andrade (1979) São 200, são 300 as favelas cariocas? O tempo gasto em contá-las é tempo de outras surgirem. 800 mil favelados ou já passa de 1 milhão? Enquanto se contam, ama-se em barraco e a céu aberto, novos seres se encomendam ou nascem à revelia. Os que mudam, os que somem, os que são mortos a tiro são logo substituídos. Onde haja terreno vago onde ainda não se ergueu um caixotão de cimento esguio (mas se vai erguer) surgem trapos e panelas, surge fumaça de lenha em jantar improvisado. Urbaniza-se? Remove-se? Extingue-se a pau e a fogo? Que fazer com tanta gente brotando do chão, formigas de um formigueiro infinito? Ensinar-lhes paciência, conformidade, renúncia? Cadastrá-los e fichá-los para fins eleitorais? Prometer-lhes a sonhada, mirífica, rósea fortuna distribuição (oh!) de renda? Deixar tudo como está para ver como é que fica? Em seminários, simpósios, comissões, congressos, cúpulas de alta prosopopéia, elaborar a perfeita e divina decisão? Um som de samba interrompe tão sérias indagações e a cada favela extinta ou em bairro transformada com direito a pagamento de Comlurb, ISS, Renda, outra aparece, larvar, rastejante, insinuante, grimpante, desafiante, de gente qual gente: amante, esperante, lancinante... O mandamento da vida explode em riso e ferida.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 5
Nesse módulo vamos estudar os direitos à educação, trabalho e seguridade social. Assim como todos os direitos humanos, esses direitos estão ligados entre si e reforçam um ao outro: a educação tem um papel importante tanto na formação da pessoa quanto na promoção dos direitos humanos; o trabalho nos acompanha ao longo da vida, como sustento e realização (por meio do trabalho o ser humano desenvolve suas potencialidades, ao mesmo tempo em que recebe e expressa solidariedade) e a seguridade social é um direito que ajuda as pessoas nas horas de necessidade. Em outros termos, uma boa educação deveria ajudar a conseguir um bom trabalho que, por sua vez, deveria garantir a previdência social (que faz parte da seguridade). Este curso também tem o propósito de promover a educação para os direitos humanos, por isso é fundamental no sentido de ajudar a criar uma cultura de direitos humanos no Brasil.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 6
A partir deste módulo, vamos nos debruçar sobre as formas de enfrentar as diversas violações, abordando alguns processos de intervenção pacífica na resolução de conflitos e, na prática, como você pode se tornar um mediador de conflitos em sua comunidade. Antes de falarmos da mediação propriamente dita, apresentaremos breve panorama das diversas formas não-violentas de enfrentar os conflitos, seguido de estudo das principais estratégias e processos envolvidos. Assim, espera-se que esta “metodologia” ajude-nos a romper certas resistências culturais de um imaginário coletivo forjado nos princípios da disputa, rivalidade e uso abusivo do poder; que possa ser útil na redução da violência e na solução pacífica dos conflitos.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 7
Neste módulo, vamos tratar de um tema que é pouco falado pela imprensa, jornais e tevês, mas que tem tudo a ver com direitos humanos, em especial ao direito de organização e a liberdade de expressão: estamos falando da ação “não-violenta ativa”. Sabemos que sem luta e sem organização, fica difícil garantir o respeito aos direitos humanos (seja por alimentação, moradia, saúde, educação etc.). A grande questão é: como lutar para realizar esses direitos? No módulo anterior, falamos de “formas não-violentas”. Agora convidamos você a pensar sobre o significado da ação não-violenta ativa em sua luta, e na luta dos movimentos sociais que se esforçam para combater a injustiça e as desigualdades, em busca de solução para os conflitos políticos e sociais que afetam, principalmente, os grupos mais vulneráveis e marginalizados. Você vai perceber que muitas dessas formas já fazem parte do nosso dia-a-dia. Para podermos lutar e trabalhar pelos nossos objetivos, antes precisamos nos organizar. É por isso que falamos a seguir do direito à liberdade de organização – que também é um direito humano. Depois disso, retomaremos o conceito da “não-violência ativa” e sua relação com os direitos humanos. Por fim, apresentamos algumas experiências de luta pela não-violência ativa. São experiências muitas vezes inovadoras, muito diferentes do que estamos acostumados. Mas são sempre em benefício da cidadania e dos direitos humanos. Vamos citar o exemplo do movimento pela diversidade sexual, pois acreditamos que é um direito vinculado à autonomia e à liberdade de expressão. Garantir essa diversidade é avançar na construção de uma sociedade mais justa, tolerante e solidária.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 8
Neste módulo e também no próximo, vamos falar com mais detalhes da mediação popular de conflitos, uma forma não-violenta de solucionar problemas. Acreditamos que pode ser muito útil para a prática dos movimentos populares e das comunidades. Também veremos alguns dos conceitos e princípios básicos do processo de mediação de conflitos, e como o mediador – a pessoa que conduz o processo – deve agir. É bom lembrar que todos estes conceitos não são regras fixas: é preciso manter a mente aberta e, muitas vezes, ser flexível para enfrentar as questões do dia-a-dia.

Curso Direitos Humanos Módulo 9
Neste módulo, continuaremos a falar sobre a mediação de conflitos. Vamos comparar a mediação com a Justiça comum e, finalmente, vamos conhecer algumas experiências concretas que o Brasil possui na mediação de conflitos. As pessoas e instituições que já trabalham com mediação popular de conflitos estão espalhados em vários estados do país. Neste módulo apresentaremos algumas para vocês; se tiverem interesse, entrem em contato com elas, para pedir algum auxílio ou trocar experiências.

Debating Globalization
Does globalization alleviate world poverty or contribute to it? Does it harm local culture or bring people together? Has free trade hurt the poor more than helped? What are globalization's effects on the environment and human rights? This book is a forum where dynamic youth from around the world debate these issues. Contained in this volume are provocative articles from both sides of this controversial debate. "In these pages, we hear youth speak about what is right with globalization, what is wrong, and how diverse actors can join forces in ensuring tomorrow’s peace, security, and sustainability. I am happy to commend this book to anyone who wants to share the visions of our world’s youth on the important issues of our day." - Bhichai Rattakul Former President of Rotary International & Foreign Minister of Thailand CONTRIBUTING AUTHORS: Thompson Ayodele, Nigeria; Richard Chu, Canada; Aline Meynier de Salinelles, France; Omagor Elijah, Uganda; Shakti Shali Ghimire, Nepal; Mario Ghossoub, Lebanon; Daniel Griswold, USA; Michael Herrmann, Germany; Roman Kosodiy, Ukraine; Cathy Madge, United Kingdom; Melisande Middleton, USA, France; Vanessa Musolino, Australia; Olusegun Olowu, Nigeria; Arvind Panagariya, India; Jocelyn Margareth Loanzon Reyes, Philippines; Shaka Robert, Uganda; Logan Wallace, USA, France

DETERMINATION OF LEAD AND ZINC LEVELS IN PETROL ATTENDANTS IN SOME MAJOR FILLING STATION IN OWERRI; NIGERIA USING FINGERNAILS AS INDICATOR
Fingernails, collected from five petrol attendants including the black marketers in major filling stations were digested using acid mixtures of hydrochloric acid and trioxonitrate (v) acid in the ratio of 1:1. From the result analysis, heavy metals such as Lead and Zinc are found in low levels in human fingernails. The low levels of concentration found in humans among petrol attendants are attributed to their exposure to environmental lead. Therefore petrol attendants have to take proper precaution so as to preserve their health.

Developing National Information and Communications Infrastructure (NICI) Policies, Plans and Strategies: the 'why' and 'how'
The emergence and convergence of information and communication technologies (ICT) remain at the centre of global social and economic transformations. The ICT sector is a gamut of industries and services activities – Internet service provision, telecommunications equipment and services, information technology (IT) equipment and services, media and broadcasting, libraries and documentation centres, commercial information providers, network-based information services and other related information and communication activities. These technological components which used to be accounted as separate activities have converged to characterise all aspects of ICTs. This has also led to the introduction of the concept of national information infrastructure (NII) or global information infrastructure (GII) defined as the "technologies, organisations, and capabilities that facilitate the production and use of ICTs" [1]. As a result, the definition of National Information and Communications Infrastructure (NICI) plans and strategies has become high on the agenda, and developing countries are confronted with the challenge to be responsive and flexible to the convergence of telecommunication, audio-visual and computing technologies. NICI plans and strategies need to reflect overall development priorities, redefine sectoral policies and support the introduction of new regulatory framework so as to improve the efficiency and to mobilise resources for building national information and communication infrastructure. Attempts are made in this paper to assess the ICT situation in African countries, to outline the pressing need to build-up NICI plans and strategies and the various steps to be taken to enable countries to be part of the information society.

E-Course On ICT in Education
When UNESCO’s Bangkok Office announced the release of its E-Learning Series on Information and Communication Technology in Education in June 2009, it was beyond expectation that 3,000 CD-ROMs would run out in just a few months. Requests for copies came literally from everywhere. To satisfy users’ demand, the Bangkok Office makes now its CD available online. The series is intended for all those who are interested to learn more about ICT in education. The CD contains two modules that were especially designed for policymakers, educational planners, school administrators and educators, in general: Module 1: ICT in Education Essentials provides learners with all the essential information promoting a common understanding of the topic in the education sector; Module 2: ICT in Education Decision Making helps to consider the different factors involved in choosing the appropriate technology to use in a particular education setting. Both modules are lively, colorful and highly interactive. “I only planned to see a few screens, then I got hooked and ended up completing the two modules, which lasted for about an hour,” says one of the CD users. Another one comments: “This is very informative. Now I understand more about ICT in education." It really does not matter whether the learner knows a little or nothing at all about ICT in education before doing the training. The two modules give you the confidence that you know already the essential information you need, or assure you that what you knew before is shared by many. You can launch the online course (click here) or obtain copies of the CD by sending a request to: ictinfo@unescobkk.org. After completing the course, you will be able to print a certificate, which you can send to ictinfo@unescobkk.org in order for your name to appear on the website of UNESCO’s Bangkok Office. It is hoped that this will raise the awareness and build a network of people working in education who have a common understanding of how technology can help education in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

EDUCATION FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Education For A Sustainable Future presents information on how today’s practices in schools are socially unsustainable. The documentary film critically analyses what is considered socially relevant in a new education system which brings out the most potential in all of humanity whilst also detailing specific educational methods from a wide range of sources on how to nurture social skills, critical thinking techniques and a larger variety of important practices to positively reinforce from our earliest years onwards. It must be recognised that a sustainable education is one of the most critical components of any advanced society. The views expressed in this documentary are not necessarily shared by the originators of source material presented.

End Poverty Now Lesson Plan 1
45 min Ideal for all secondary grades and can be adapted to suit any History, English, or Ethics class. This lesson aims to help students identify their misconceptions about poverty and begin to see what it actually is like to live in poverty. The students begin by building a structure in groups that have varying amounts of materials and/or tools. The students then draw a picture of what poverty means to them. These pictures are discussed as a class, with a particular focus on misconceptions. The students finish by linking the lesson with what they have been studying and making collages that demonstrate what poverty means to them.

End Poverty Now Lesson Plan 2 - Middle Grades Edition
This version of the lesson is suited for grades 6-8. This lesson will help students understand several of poverty's causes and manifestations, including racism, sexism, and lacking access to education, by detailing and demonstrating the challenges specific impoverished groups face. Part 1- Jigsaw Students take on the role of a person who is affected by poverty in a specific way. They are encouraged to dress up and act. Pointing out when students are stereotyping a group is part of the lesson. "Situation Slips," which detail students' assigned situations, are included. Part 2 has students go into groups and build a structure, similar to the first lesson. However, new restrictions that demonstrate exclusion, resource stripping, sexism, and many other factors that lead to and deepen poverty have been added.

End Poverty Now Lesson Plan 3
This lesson aims to synthesize what students have learned during the lessons and give them the tools to alleviate poverty. Part 1 begins with a class discussion on the current realities of poverty. Students then create a collage which they compare to the one they made in the first lesson, thereby seeing how their views have changed. In Part 2 you can have groups of students discuss how certain projects would alleviate poverty, select a particularly effective option, and present it to the class. Alternatively, you could have students research the movement to end poverty and present a solution or organization that they believe is effective. A sheet that details what students can do to alleviate poverty and several examples of grassroots projects are included.

Environment and human well-being: a practical strategy
Report of the UN Millennium Project Task Force on Environmental Sustainability

Environmental Conservation Project
The ultimate goal of the clean-up event (project) is to raise the level of awareness of participants with regard to the 7th goal of Environmental Sustainability (UN MDGs) concept and how they can effectively destroy the vast opportunities they afford towards broad-based sustainable development in Africa. An elevated awareness of the concept of the Nairobi River Clean-up, will lead to change in attitudes regarding youths ability and role to influence the ongoing Environmental Conservation process, which will turn result in the much desired increase in civic participation.

Estrategia de Emprego e Formação Profissional em Moçambique
Se um País tem uma estratégia de emprego e formação profissional a falhar, significa que existe uma perspectiva futurista bastante preocupante, tanto do ponto de vista de redução dos índices de desemprego, principalmente para os jovens, tanto de cumprimento daquilo que é uma das apostas do Presidente Armando Guebuza que é a criação da riqueza por via do empreendedorismo e do auto-emprego. Recentemente a Sra Abiba Tamele, Directora do Instituto Nacional de Emprego e Formação Profissional de Moçambique (INEFP), veio a público afirmar que a estratégia de emprego e formação profissional de Moçambique está a falhar. O Problema afecta a milhões de Moçambicanos. Os jovens formam-se nas escolas técnico-profissionais e não encontram postos de trabalho, não têm facilidades de acesso ao crédito para iniciar uma actividade económica, e geram-se casos de criminalidade e outros males sociais. O empreendedorismo juvenil em Moçambique está “encravado” pela falta de uma “alavanca” financeira subsidiada. O INEFP já reconheceu que a estratégia de emprego, uma das principais preocupações dos Moçambicanos, em particular os jovens, está a falhar, o que já representa um passo importante para alterar o cenário. Passam-se cerca de 2 anos deste o lançamento desta estratégia que vai até 2015, o que pode permitir que o governo Moçambicano ainda tome em consideração a alteração deste cenário. O INEFP devia encomendar um estudo para apurar dados que lhe são necessários para o seu trabalho. Moçambique precisa de ter uma informação estatística eficiente sobre o mercado de trabalho. Ninguém sabe dizer ao certo qual é a taxa de emprego ou desemprego em Moçambique ou quando é que se fez um estudo completo sobre o mercado de emprego em Moçambique. Um instituto de emprego deve ter ao menos uma relação de instituições de formação técnico-profissional existentes no País e a capacidade de anualmente obter dados sobre a disponibilidade de novos formados em diferentes áreas técnicas para, dai saber que necessidades o País tem em termos de formação profissional. Pode também ser criado um sistema de gestão que permita que todas as admissões ao mercado de trabalho pelo Governo e sector privado sejam reportadas ao Ministério do Trabalho e INEFP, de modo a que haja mais dados sobre quantas pessoas entram para um novo posto de trabalho em Moçambique. Descentralizar a área de formação Profissional Um dos maiores problemas que o INEFP actualmente enfrenta é o facto de o Instituto, consciente da sua capacidade de formação de técnicos, ainda não assumiu a descentralização da área de formação profissional que lhe compete, facto que representaria uma mais-valia para aquela instituição. É importante que o INEFP estabeleça parcerias com instituições de formação técnico-profissional e que estas efectivamente desempenhem um papel chave na formação profissional ou ainda, como muitos defendem, é preciso que o INEFP passe a responsabilidade desta ares, sob forma de acordo de parceria, a uma outra instituição que possa faze-lo sendo subsidiada pelo estado. Os números que anualmente são divulgados relativos à formação profissional do INEFP são ínfimos do ponto de vista das necessidades do País, e esse cenário tem que ser alterado. O Desemprego nos jovens A falta de dados estatísticos fiáveis sobre o emprego não permitem uma boa análise desta situação em Moçambique, mas pode-se afirmar categoricamente que mais de 50 % dos jovens Moçambicanos não têm um emprego formal, percentagem essa que vem aumentando nos últimos anos. Por isso recomenda-se às autoridades da tutela a realização de um estudo da situação do jovem no mercado de trabalho em Moçambique, que pode juntar esforços do Instituto Nacional de Estatística (INE), do INEFP e do Próprio Ministério da Juventude e Desportos (MJD). Ninguem discutiria tanto se num estudo se chegasse a conclusão de que uma parte significativa dos jovens Moçambicanos vive em condições de pobreza absoluta, com enormes dificuldades para estudar e trabalhar. O esforço feito em Moçambique em termos de políticas públicas que beneficiem a juventude apresentam resultados que ainda se mostram insuficientes para gerar novos postos de trabalho e o segmento juvenil é o mais afetado por essa situação. É preciso que se mude este cenário.

Global Affairs Monitor - Modern China: The Promise and Challenge of an Emerging Superpower
Modern China: The Promise and Challenge of an Emerging Superpower The Chinese narrative is unique, and Western powers in an age of globalization find themselves in unfamiliar territory. As global economies become increasingly integrated and pressing world problems require global solutions, the well-being of all countries is affected by China. Most experts see the international community today as being at a cross-roads: China cannot be ignored, so it must necessarily be either balanced and contained, or engaged as a full-fledged, (and perhaps unconditional) member of the world’s power infrastructure.

GYCA World AIDS Report 2007
On December 1st, 2007, members of the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS (GYCA) commemorated World AIDS Day with 104 local events in 34 countries. The goal of the events was to highlight the pressing need to build youth leadership and to listen to the voices of young leaders fighting HIV and AIDS in their communities. Despite the fact that 40% of the 2.5 million new infections each year occur in young people aged 15 to 24, young leaders are uniting to inspire others from our generation to take action against HIV and AIDS on our own terms - through street theater, care for AIDS orphans, peer education and work with young injecting drug users. GYCA events were organized in partnership with the World AIDS Campaign's "Take the Lead" World AIDS Day initiative. In some countries, multiple events were held, often in collaboration with other organizations, networks, universities, and with local governments. GYCA members received an event organizing kit and materials from the World AIDS Campaign to prepare them for the day, and reported back on the proceedings with pictures and feedback from participants. We received reports from 48 individuals and organizations located in 21 different countries and are pleased to share with you a summary of their events.

Hacia el Objetivo del Milenio de Reducir la Pobreza en América Latina y el Caribe
El presente informe examina las condiciones en las cuales cada uno de 18 países de América Latina y el Caribe podrían alcanzar las metas de reducción de la pobreza que la Declaración del Milenio establece como uno de los Objetivos del Desarrollo del Milenio de las Naciones Unidas. Los 18 países que se examinan en el informe son Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, la República Dominicana, Uruguay y Venezuela. La interrogante que procura dilucidar el informe es si en el año 2015 cada uno de los 18 países habrá logrado disminuir a la mitad la tasa de pobreza extrema que registraba en 1999 (respecto de una línea internacional de pobreza que corresponde a la fijada originalmente, que era de un dólar diario, y de una línea de pobreza específica para cada país).

HIV/AIDS a Comprehensive approach
AIDS is being regarded as one of the most ravaging illness of all times. The fact that as at date there is no known cure, makes the virus more frightening than ever. The illness has been around for over 30 years, but it is a wonder that some people (youth in particular) are just hearing about it. Its origin is no longer of any consequence whether it is a punishment for our immorality or what ever it is, ceases to be of relevance as if now has as victims ,the most innocent i.e. babies and youths. The AIDS crisis is now the crisis of the developing countries and the World, especially Africa. The clinical syndrome is the greatest enemy to this fatal and most devastating illness, as infected persons continue to spread the infection. Behavioral change, Acceptance by those infected and their co-operation is the only way toward to fight the spread of this virus.

Hodges Knowledge Domains Model
Hodges’ Health Career (Care Domains) Model provides a conceptual framework upon which health care professionals can map a patients care problems, across four knowledge domains: Interpersonal; Sociological; Scientific; & Political (Autonomy). Patients and their carers may also be taught to use the model, enabling engagement, understanding and concordance in care planning and outcome evaluation. Brian Hodges' original notes, a resources page and links (800+) are included. Additional material on health informatics and the potential role of visualization in care assessment and evaluation can also be found. Referenced throughout. 2006 saw the addition of a blog and the first audio podcast introducing Hodges model.

Kick the Ball and score the World...Kick with us
KICK THE BALL AND SCORE THE WORLD Soccer is a magic game that brings together people from different kinds of life to form a team, work together to achieve success. We developed this programme called KICK THE BALL AND SCORE THE WORLD so that we can develop the talent in the young people of our communities and at the same time kick out misery and cause a smile. Playing soccer is a good strategy in mobilizing the youth to take part in the community work, develop their talents, fight diseases, tribalism and racism, and promote education which is the greatest weapon to change the world. When a player kicks the ball:- * He sores peace, * Kicks malaria * Kicks AIDS * Kicks racism and tribalism * Kicks illiteracy * Kicks misery * Builds team work * And scores the world

La situation des enfants dans le monde 2008
En 2006, pour la première fois dans l’histoire récente, le nombre annuel total de décès d’enfants de moins de cinq ans est passé au-dessous de la barre des 10 millions, à 9,7 millions. Cela représente une réduction de 60 % du taux de mortalité de l’enfant depuis 1960. On ne saurait cependant se contenter de cette situation. La mort chaque année de 9,7 millions de jeunes enfants est inacceptable, d’autant plus que bon nombre de ces décès pourraient être évités. Et malgré les progrès réalisés, nous ne sommes pas encore en passe d’atteindre l’Objectif du Millénaire pour le développement qui consiste à réduire de deux tiers le taux de mortalité des enfants de moins de cinq ans d’ici à 2015.

Language and Content in HIV- and AIDS - Related Materials
Even though this distinction is made clear in the examples throughout this document, this is one of the most common mistakes seen in reports on HIV and AIDS issues. AIDS is a range of conditions – a syndrome – that occurs when a person’s immune system is seriously weakened by HIV infection. Someone who has HIV infection has antibodies to the virus but may not have developed any of the illnesses that constitute AIDS.

Le problème de la jeunesse batwa du Burundi dans le domaine de l'éducation.
Au Burundi,la jeunesse twa se trouve dans une situation difficiles à résoudre. Plus de 60% abandonnent ses études primaires,secondaires et personne ne peut franchir l'école secondaire pour aller à l'université. Nous avons au niveau national 4 twa ayant terminé l'université parmi environ 78000 twa du Burundi. La cause ce faible taux scolarisation de cette jeunesse est liée au manque de quoi manger, les matériels scolaires et d'autres problèmes que soufle les batwa du Burundi. Pour celà les organisations internationales et nationales sont beaucoup impliquer pour résoudre cette situation qui développe la marginalisation de cette communauté. Nous étant une organisation sans but lucratif ,nous nous engageons de pouvoir promouvoir la jeunesse mais les moyens financiers nous faut défaut.

LocalCooling
More than 30 billion kilowatt-hours of energy is wasted because many of us simply forget to shut down our computers when we aren't using them. If we could just improve the efficiency of how we use our PCs, the savings in energy costs would be over $3 billion! The CO2 emissions from just 15 computers are equivalent in energy terms to the gas consumption used by one car. LocalCooling will: -Cut our energy bills -Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by reducing your PC's power consumption -Improve our overall computing experience and efficiency -Show us, in detail, how much you have saved since installing the software. LocalCooling saves power by either turning off your screen, putting your hard drive to sleep when not being used, or shutting down your PC when you are away.

Metas do Milênio: fundo para não faltar água
O Fundo Global de Saneamento, criado em março, é considerado um mecanismo vital para atingir um dos Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio: que dois terços da população mundial tenha suficiente acesso à água até 2015. A criação do fundo, conhecido pela sigla em inglês GSF, responde à intenção de “avançar para as Metas do Milênio” adotadas pela Organização das Nações Unidas em 2000, “e ir, inclusive, além”, disse Jon Lane, diretor-executivo do Conselho de Colaboração para o Fornecimento de Água e Saneamento, com sede em Genebra. No momento não é possível apresentar “evidência numérica” sobre o impacto do fundo, que tem orçamento anual de US$ 100 milhões, na ajuda às nações mais pobres, acrescentou Lane. “Mas a existência de um mecanismo de financiamento que funcionará com enfoques centrados nas necessidades das pessoas e na geração que demanda é um passo nessa direção”, assegurou. O GSF escolheu Madagascar como um dos primeiros países para desenvolver uma experiência-piloto. “Nos sentimos honrados com esta demonstração de confiança. Estes fundos nos permitirá aumentar nosso apoio, as ações de conscientização e mobilização de recursos para ajudar a população mais vulnerável de comunidades remotas”, disse o presidente de Madagascar, Marc Raval Omanna, no mês passado na Conferência Internacional da Água, em Estocolmo. Um estudo conjunto da Organização Mundial da Saúde e do Fundo das Nações Unidas para a Infância indica que 62% dos africanos não têm instalações sanitárias adequadas, como banheiros, que evitem seu contato com excrementos. Além disso, cerca de 2,6 bilhões de pessoas em todo o mundo, incluindo 980 milhões de crianças, vivem sem banheiro em suas casas e são vulneráveis a uma amplo espectro de ameaças à saúde. Mais de cinco mil menores de 5 anos morrem a cada dia devido à falta de higiene e instalações sanitárias, o que resulta em mais de 1,5 milhão de mortes relacionadas com a diarréia, segundo dados da ONU. O lado positivo, segundo o estudo conjunto, é que aproximadamente 1,2 bilhão de pessoas em todo o mundo tiveram acesso a melhores condições de saneamento entre 1990 e 2004. Mas, no caso de continuar a tendência atual, não se chegará ao objetivo do milênio em matéria de saneamento até 2015. faltará, em tal eventualidade, que esse direito seja gozado por mais de 700 milhões de pessoas. Os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio contemplam conseguir até 2015, em relação aos níveis de 1990, redução da metade da pobreza extrema e da fome; acesso universal à educação primária; promoção da igualdade de gênero; redução de dois terços na mortalidade infantil e de 75% da materna; combater a expansão do HIV/Aids, da malaria e de outras doenças; assegurar a sustentabilidade ambiental e estabelecer uma associação Norte-Sul para o desenvolvimento. Outra meta inclui os aspectos relacionados com a água e o saneamento, para garantir a sustentabilidade ambiental. No próximo dia 25, a ONU realizará uma reunião de líderes mundiais para avaliar os êxitos e fracassos no caminho rumo a esses objetivos. O fórum mundial estima que são necessários pelo menos US$ 10 bilhões adicionais para responder as necessidades em matéria de água e saneamento. Nesse contexto, os cem milhões anuais contemplados no orçamento do GSF “parecem ser apenas 1% do que falta”, disse Lane à IPS. Mas se for considerado que a maior parte desse dinheiro será gasta pelas famílias que necessitam das melhorias, o impacto dessa ajuda se torna mais significativo, argumentou. Os US$ 100 milhões não são um teto, mas a aspiração do GSF para realizar uma contribuição significativa. “Há muitos doadores e o GSF não pretende se converter em uma espécie de monopólio”, afirmou Lane. “Vejamos o exemplo do Fundo Mundial de Luta contra a Aids, a Tuberculose e a Malária, se converteu em uma grande estrutura, mas o dinheiro que maneja é uma pequena porção do total destinado a combater o HIV/aids”, acrescentou. Mais do que a quantia de dinheiro que manejará, a importância do GSF está no fato de sua atividade chamar a atenção para outros sobre o problema e os animar a destinar mais recursos para o saneamento, afirmou Lane. No momento em que as nações em desenvolvimento lutam para atender as necessidades sanitárias de sua população em aumento, a China é apontada como um exemplo a seguir. Pequim investiu mais de US$ 89 bilhões apenas em redes de cloacas e unidades de tratamento de esgoto. “A qualidade do ar na China ainda deixa a desejar, mas o que conseguiu em matéria de saneamento é impressionante e sustentável”, disse o príncipe Guillermo Alejandro, herdeiro da coroa holandesa e presidente da Diretoria de Assessores sobre Água e Saneamento do secretário-geral da ONU, Ban Ki-moon. Lane admitiu que não são muitas as agências das Nações Unidas que destinam fundos ao saneamento, mas afirmou que a ONU não é uma ferramenta de financiamento. A maior parte do dinheiro procede da ajuda bilateral, disse. “Feito este esclarecimento, a brecha entre o que o sistema da ONU entrega e a necessidade estimada de S$ 10 bilhões é enorme”, acrescentou.

Metas do Milênio: Marcha lenta e desigual
Nações Unidas, 30/09/2008 – “Embora estejamos nos movendo na direção correta, não o fazemos suficientemente rápido” para cumprir os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio, disse o secretário-geral da Organização das Nações Unidas, Ban Ki-moon . Em um momento em que as nações em desenvolvimento, particularmente na África, admitem sua incapacidade de cumprir a maioria dos oito Objetivos, um país latino-americano vai contra a corrente: o Chile. Esta nação inclusive acredita que poderá atingir as Metas no prazo estabelecido pela ONU. “Modesta e orgulhosamente, anunciamos a esta Assembléia que o Chile está conseguindo os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio fixados para 2015”, disse aos delegados a presidente chilena, Michelle Bachelet. Dirigindo-se à Assembléia Geral, de 192 membros, afirmou: “Podemos dizer que é possível erradicar a pobreza, sair do subdesenvolvimento e – o que é ainda mais importante – fazê-lo dentro da democracia e com liberdade”. O Chile, que quase triplicou o tamanho de sua economia entre 1990 e 2008, “avançou fortemente” em todas as frentes: saúde, educação, habitação, qualidade de vida e coesão social, acrescentou Bachelet se referindo a alguns objetivos estabelecidos pela ONU. Com população de aproximadamente 16,4 milhões de habitantes, o nível de pobreza no Chile diminuiu: passou de cerca de 40% em 1989 para 13% atuais. Bachelet proporcionou na semana passada um dos poucos alívios políticos em uma reunião de aproximadamente cem líderes mundiais, a maioria se queixando de que a atual crise de alimentos, combustível e energia está minando suas tentativas de conseguir os oito Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio. Estas metas, definidas pela Assembléia Geral da ONU, incluem reduzir pela metade a proporção de pessoas que sofrem fome e pobreza (em relação a 1990); garantir educação primária universal; promover a igualdade de gênero; reduzir a mortalidade infantil e a materna; combater à Aids, a malária e outras doenças; assegurar a sustentabilidade ambiental e fomentar uma associação mundial para o desenvolvimento, tudo isto tendo como data-limite 2015. A volátil situação se vê agravada pela crise econômica sem precedentes que vivem os Estados Unidos, descrita por alguns como uma “tempestade que se aproxima”, ameaçando devastar o mundo em desenvolvimento. “Embora estejamos nos movendo na direção certa, não o fazemos com suficiente rapidez”, disse Ban Ki-moon em uma reunião de alto nível sobre os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio. O presidente da 63ª Assembléia Geral, sacerdote Miguel d’Escoto Brockman, advertiu que a atual crise financeira terá “conseqüências muito sérias” que impedirão um avanço significativo, “se é que se conseguirá algum avanço” rumo aos Objetivos do Milênio, “que são em si mesmos insuficientes. Sempre são os pobres que pagam o preço pela cobiça desenfreada e pela irresponsabilidade dos poderosos”, afirmou d’Escoto se referindo ao resgate de US$ 700 bilhões proposto pelo governo dos Estados Unidos para salvar os bancos de investimento de Nova York da bancarrota e do colapso. Consultado se outros países em desenvolvimento fizeram pronunciamentos públicos sobre sua capacidade de cumprir todos os Objetivos antes da data estipulada, Salil Shetty, diretor da Campanha do Milênio, disse à IPS: “Tristemente, não temos informação de fácil acesso em nível de país em um único lugar. Mas, sabemos que 47 países estão no rumo de cumprir o objetivo de educação, 44 o referente a pobreza e 34 no tocante à mortalidade infantil”, afirmou. Isto inclui algumas das nações mais pobres, como Zâmbia, que está bem encaminhada em seis dos oito objetivos, e também alguns países grandes, como o Brasil, que só está atrasado no objetivo relacionado ao saneamento, afirmou Shetty. Para Shetty, os maiores desafios são os objetivos sobre meio ambiente e mortalidade materna. Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, diretora-executiva do Fundo de População das Nações Unidas (UNFPA), disse que custaria ao mundo cerca de US$ 6 bilhões, menos de um dia e meio de gasto militar mundial, impedir que as mulheres morram ao darem à luz. “Não cumpriremos os Objetivos do Milênio, a menos que a saúde reprodutiva e os direitos das mulheres se convertam em uma prioridade política e financeira”, disse Obaid à IPS. A reunião de alto nível realizada na semana passada viu a criação de uma nova coalizão para cumprir os desafios que enfrentam os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio: organizações governamentais e não-governamentais, presidentes de corporações multinacionais, organizações religiosas e filantropos. Ban Ki-moon pediu US$ 72 bilhões por ano em financiamento externo para se atingir as Metas do Milênio até 2015. “Embora a quantia pareça enorme, de fato pode ser custeada, particularmente considerando os US$ 267 bilhões gastos no ano passado por países da Organização para a Cooperação e o Desenvolvimento Econômicos (OCDE) somente na área de subsídios agrícolas”, acrescentou. O presidente do Quênia, Mwai Kibaki, apontou o aumento nos preços do petróleo com fator da atual crise econômica que enfrenta hoje a maioria dos países pobres. Mas, o presidente de Ruanda, Paul Kagame, se mostrou mais confiante em sua luta contra a pobreza. Disse que em seu país - uma das histórias de êxito mais recentes da África – se registra “um saudável crescimento econômico, que atualmente é, em média, de 7% ao ano, em um contexto cada vez mais aberto e propício que incentiva os investidores externos e internos”. Explicando alguns dos êxitos dos Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio, Ban Ki-moon disse que as vacinas contra o sarampo impediram 7,5 milhões de mortes. Também houve avanços contra a Aids, enquanto aumentaram as matrículas escolares em vários países africanos, após a abolição de cotas escolares, acrescentou. “Milhões de lares pobres saíram da extrema pobreza, não somente na China e Índia, mas em muitas nações, entre elas algumas das mais pobres”, disse Ban. Além disso, admitiu que a África subsaariana experimentou um aumento dos pobres entre 1990 e 2005. Alison Woodhead, porta-voz da Oxfam Internacional, disse as IPS que a reunião de alto nível “demonstrou que há um renovado apetite pela luta contra a pobreza”. Este encontro deu nova vida aos Objetivos do Milênio, acrescentou. Mas o grande fracasso da cúpula é a resposta à crise alimentar – prosseguiu Woodhead – porque os líderes mundiais não responderam ao desafio, deixando amplamente de cumprir compromissos assumidos há meses.

Mobilizing Billions to Fight AIDS in Africa: The Way Forward
A vastly expanded and well-funded multi-billion dollar response is needed to change the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa, through effective prevention, care and impact mitigation. The growing awareness of AIDS’ devastating impact and increasing political commitment provide a new opportunity for huge increases in funding and in the scale of the programmatic response to the pandemic. African leadership and financial commitment are required to meet this challenge, notwithstanding the weak fiscal situations in many of the worst affected countries in Africa. In this context, a major share of the required funds will have to come from external sources. There remains today a huge gap between the estimated annual needs of $3-4 billion for HIV/AIDS and current annual expenditures of $0.3-0.4 billion. Based on a preliminary examination of available data, it is proposed that the needs of Africa be met through a combination of increases in domestic and external financing. On the domestic side, it is suggested that an amount of $0.8 to $1.6 billion could be mobilized, equivalent to 0.25-0.5 percent of GDP or 1-2 percent of what governments in Africa are currently spending. The balance of $1.4 to $3.2 billion would be met through a combination of external grants (preferably) and concessional lending. In this paper, indicative financial targets are proposed for the main institutions providing external support to HIV/AIDS in Africa – bilateral governments, multilateral banks, charitable foundations, and private companies – that together add up to about $2.5 billion annually. Achieving these targets for increased financing from African governments and from external sources over the next three years is feasible, if all partners act simultaneously and cooperatively to mobilize the ten-fold increase in resources required. There remains the need to develop rapidly the capacity of African institutions to use expanded financing for HIV/AIDS effectively. In this paper it is suggested that capacity building would be undertaken as part of the significant increase in funding, not as a precondition for it. With explicit political commitment, backed by the allocation of domestic financial resources and major increases in external funding, Africa can make rapid progress to reverse the course of HIV/AIDS on the continent.

Mr.
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has conceived a vision for the people of West Africa for the year 2020. This vision – “ Towards an ECOWAS of Peoples” otherwise called vision 2020 is intended to create coherence and give more meaning to the actions of the ECOWAS Commission as it seeks to advance from an organisation that is state centric (ECOWAS of states) to one that would be citizen focused ( ECOWAS of Peoples). This article examines the contents of the vision and ways through which civil society can contribute in its actualisation.

Opri]i munca copiilor Ap\rarea drepturilor copilului prin educa]ie, art\ [i mass media, Supporting children's rights through education, the arts, and the media (SCREAM): Education Pack (Romanian version)
Romanian version. The SCREAM programme offers a unique opportunity to engage a wide range of community actors and organizations in the promotion of social justice and universally recognized human and labour rights. http://www.ilo.org/ipec/Campaignandadvocacy/Scream/index.htm Munca copiilor este o form\ de exploatare a celor mai vulnerabili membri ai societ\]ii – copiii. Se [tie c\ exist\ în lume peste 246 de milioane de copii sub vârsta de 18 ani care muncesc. Aproape trei sferturi dintre ace[tia – aproape 180 de milioane – muncesc în condi]ii periculoase, care le pun via]a în pericol. Mul]i sunt priva]i de educa]ie [i sunt expu[i unor abuzuri fizice, sexuale [i afective. Unii dintre ei ajung s\ dobândeasc\ handicapuri fizice sau chiar s\ moar\ înainte de a deveni adul]i ca o consecin]\ direct\ a muncii lor. Al]ii r\mân cu grave traume afective pentru toat\ via]a. Pentru mul]i, munca copiilor este un fenomen invizibil, fie pentru c\ ace[tia au ocupa]ii ascunse, cum ar fi muncile în gospod\rie [i prostitu]ia, fie pentru c\ societatea este mult prea dispus\ s\ închid\ ochii. Prin m\rirea vizibilit\]ii copiilor care muncesc, societatea se va putea dezb\ra de atitudinea indiferent\ pe care o are fa]\ de situa]ia dificil\ a acestor copii. Prin intermediul Programului Interna]ional pentru Eliminarea Muncii Copiilor (IPEC), Organiza]ia Interna]ional\ a Muncii (OIM) este vârful de lance al luptei duse pe plan interna]ional pentru eliminarea muncii copiilor. Deoarece cauzele muncii copiilor sunt complexe [i multiple, problema trebuie s\ fie atacat\ pe mai multe fronturi, prin ratificarea [i aplicarea conven]iilor interna]ionale, derularea unor programe practice pe teren [i mobilizarea factorilor esen]iali din cadrul societ\]ii. Tinerii, în mod deosebit, au un rol important de jucat în promovarea con[tientiz\rii problemelor privind justi]ia social\ [i exercitarea unei influen]e asupra comunit\]ilor în sensul promov\rii schimb\rilor sociale. De[i copiii, adolescen]ii [i tinerii reprezint\ o parte important\ a popula]iei lumii, ace[tia nu prea au un cuvânt de spus despre modul în care este condus\ lumea. Pân\ când ating vârsta adult\, îi model\m într-o asemenea m\sur\ dup\ propriul nostru mod de a gândi, vedea [i face lucrurile, încât ajung s\ piard\ definitiv propria perspectiv\ pre]ioas\. Ajutându-i pe tineri s\ se afirme, responsabilizându-i [i recunoscând valoarea contribu]iei lor, sper\m s\ putem valorifica bogata lor creativitate [i angajamentul pe care îl pot pune în serviciul campaniei pentru eliminarea muncii copiilor. Prin urmare, IPEC a lansat o nou\ ini]iativ\ în domeniul educa]iei [i mobiliz\rii sociale, “SCREAM Opri]i munca copiilor”, pentru a veni în ajutorul educatorilor din toat\ lumea în promovarea în]elegerii [i con[tientiz\rii problematicii muncii copiilor în rândul tinerilor [i al comunit\]ilor în general. SCREAM (]ip\t) este acronimul denumirii proiectului în limba englez\, Supporting Children’s Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media (Ap\rarea Drepturilor Copilului prin Educa]ie, Art\ [i Mass Media), reflectând în acela[i timp suferin]a t\cut\ a copiilor care muncesc [i necesitatea de a li se face auzit\ vocea. Prin metode didactice creative [i inovatoare, programul SCREAM vizeaz\ informarea tinerilor despre lumea în care tr\iesc [i nedrept\]ile din ea, punând accent pe munca copiilor, astfel încât ei s\ poat\ vorbi la rândul lor în numele copiilor care muncesc din lumea întreag\. Programul pune pe umerii tinerilor aceast\ r\spundere [i îi ajut\ s\ formuleze reac]iile corespunz\toare. SCREAM se inspir\ în mare m\sur\ din artele vizuale, literatur\ [i teatru. Teatrul este un instrument foarte puternic în ceea ce-i prive[te pe tineri. Teatrul vorbe[te un limbaj universal care trece peste toate barierele geografice [i culturale [i care a fost utilizat de-a lungul istoriei ca vehicul al criticii sociale. Prin urmare, programul promoveaz\ teatrul ca mijloc cu ajutorul c\ruia tinerii î[i pot explora sentimentele, le pot exprima [i î[i pot transmite mesajul întregii comunit\]i. Pentru a în]elege cu adev\rat calvarul cotidian prin care trec copiii care muncesc, oamenii trebuie s\ fie mi[ca]i în adâncul fiin]ei lor. Cu ajutorul [i îndrumarea corespunz\toare, tinerii pot dobândi deprinderile [i încrederea necesar\ pentru a crea [i monta propria lor pies\ de teatru, ]inând seama de propriul lor mediu cultural [i social [i folosind propria limb\ sau propriul dialect. Mul]i dintre partenerii no[tri împ\rt\[esc deja cu noi speran]a c\ programul SCREAM va ajunge s\ fie utilizat pe scar\ larg\ în întreaga lume. În numele lor [i al milioanelor de copii care continu\ s\ fie exploata]i prin munc\, recomand\m programul SCREAM tuturor statelor membre, autorit\]ilor [colare, organiza]iilor cadrelor didactice, organiza]iilor patronale [i sindicale, ONG-urilor [i organiza]iilor comunitare, educatorilor [i profesorilor, precum [i tuturor organiza]iilor [i persoanelor care au ocazia de a interac]iona cu tineri în orice context educativ. Pe m\sur\ ce va fi utilizat, programul se va îmbun\t\]i [i se va consolida tot mai mult. Prin urmare, haide]i s\-l utiliz\m!

Orbis, PNUD e Unicef firmam parceria para disponibilizar sistema de indicadores dos Objetivos do Milênio
Observatório de Indicadores de Sustentabilidade, de Curitiba, será o responsável pelo Portal ODM, que trará informações sobre todos os municípios brasileiros. O Observatório de Indicadores de Sustentabilidade (Orbis), de Curitiba, firmou parceria com o Fundo das Nações Unidas para a Infância (Unicef) para disponibilizar na web indicadores dos Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio (ODM). O Portal ODM, que tem previsão de lançamento para novembro, é uma iniciativa do PNUD e trará informações sobre todos os municípios brasileiros, traçando um panorama do alcance dos ODM, disseminando informações que permitam maior conhecimento da realidade local, estimulem a mobilização social e concretizem ações voltadas ao desenvolvimento de capacidades pela melhoria das condições de vida para todos. “Com esse apoio, lideranças públicas e privadas poderão mobilizar esforços orientados na definição de metas e ações municipais, visando a busca de boas condições de vida de seus habitantes”, afirma a coordenadora executiva do Orbis, Luciana Brenner. O Orbis é um programa do Instituto de Promoção do Desenvolvimento (IPD), do Sistema Federação das Indústrias do Estado do Paraná (Fiep) e do Serviço Social da Indústria (Sesi). De acordo com Luciana Brenner, os indicadores são fundamentais para identificar os pontos positivos, carências e necessidades de determinada região. Servem também de instrumento para que os governos possam identificar prioridades e definir políticas voltadas às reais necessidades da população, além de medir os resultados das intervenções e iniciativas. “O gestor municipal, com mandato entre 2009 e 2012, contará com o Portal ODM para apoiá-lo no grande desafio de melhorar a qualidade de vida da população e avançar com sucesso em direção à sustentabilidade. Poderá utilizar os ODM como estratégia para identificar um cenário claro, capaz de orientar as ações e potencializar as capacidades de sua administração”, diz a coordenadora. “Queremos que os Objetivos do Milênio sejam alcançados em cada um dos municípios, e não apenas como média entre os municípios de uma região”, afirma Luciana Brenner. Segundo ela, estudos regionais permitiram uma visão global sobre a situação dos ODM em todo o território nacional e deixaram claros os grandes contrastes existentes nas diversas partes do país, indicando a necessidade de se ir além das médias. “Por isso, é importante termos as informações desagregadas, olhando o município, o que permite identificarmos onde estão as carências e dessa forma ter ações mais efetivas”, explica. Objetivos do Milênio – Através do Portal ODM, a sociedade poderá acompanhar o monitoramento dos Indicadores do Milênio em cada município. Os ODM foram propostos pela ONU e assumidos por 189 países, na Assembléia realizada em 2000, e se constituem em metas socioeconômicas, que abrangem as áreas de renda, educação, saúde, gênero e meio ambiente. O prazo acordado para o alcance dessas metas é 2015, mas no Paraná, o Movimento Nós Podemos, articulado pelo Sistema Fiep, estabeleceu como meta alcançar os objetivos até 2010. O Portal ODM irá potencializar a interatividade e a disseminação de informações e experiências acerca dos Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio, com ênfase local. Para facilitar a compreensão e a análise dos dados, o Portal oferecerá duas formas de acesso às informações: uma mais simplificada, com relatórios por município e breves textos explicativos, e outra, mais detalhada, onde o usuário poderá elaborar mapas e tabelas. Os indicadores que serão acompanhados foram definidos com o apoio dos especialistas do Instituto de Pesquisa Econômica Aplicada (IPEA) e PNUD. A atualização das informações no Portal será feita pelo Orbis. Os dados e indicadores são coletados de fontes oficiais, como o Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE), Ministérios do Trabalho Saúde, Educação, entre outros. Histórico – O trabalho do Orbis com indicadores teve início em 2004, quando o Observatório começou a mapear os Indicadores do Milênio, na Região Metropolitana de Curitiba, tais como intensidade de pobreza, taxa de alfabetização, taxa de mortalidade infantil, taxa de mortalidade materna, incidência de Aids, entre outros. Em 2005, o mapeamento se estendeu para o restante do Estado e teve como objetivo apontar as áreas mais carentes ou críticas que mereciam receber a intervenção imediata de organismos públicos. “O mais importante é que as pessoas tenham acesso à informação, que essa informação seja fácil de ser interpretada e contribua para um conhecimento melhor da realidade que nos rodeia”, destaca a coordenadora executiva do Orbis.

Plan d’action de développement durable 2008-2011
Alors que la jeunesse québécoise doit relever des défis constants, et ce, face à toutes les réalités auxquelles elle est confrontée, le Conseil permanent de la jeunesse s’efforce de recommander, à travers ses publications, des changements sociaux en vue d’améliorer les conditions de vie des jeunes du Québec. Il s’agit d’un défi de taille, où l’appui de tous ses collaborateurs est essentiel pour atteindre cet objectif.

Prospects for the Global Economy
Global slump hits developing countries as credit squeeze impedes trade and growth. Historic commodity boom ends, prices fall with slowing growth. Future demand and supply of oil and food can be balanced, given the right policies. A new World Bank report, Global Economic Prospects 2009, examines the impact of the financial crisis on GDP growth across the world, noting a marked slowdown everywhere, including in formerly resilient developing countries. Subtitled Commodities at the Crossroads, the report finds that future demand and supply of key commodities like oil and food can be balanced given the right policies in the energy and agriculture sectors.

Report of 20087 STAND UP and SPEAK OUT event hosted by YPWC
The STAND UP campaign is an exciting and innovative challenge which is aimed at setting a Guinness World Record for the most number of people who will STAND UP against poverty and for the UN Millennium Development Goals. The event took place within a 24-hour period from October 16th - 17th, 2007 and was designed to coincide with the Internatinal day of Poverty and White Band Day. In 2007 over 43 million people stood up to demand that world leaders keep their promises to end poverty and inequality. In 2000, leaders of 189 countries signed the Millennium Declaration agreeing to do everything in their power to end poverty. They pledged to do this by achieving the Millennium Development Goals, a roadmap to end extreme poverty by 2015. Still every day, 50,000 people die as a result of extreme poverty and the gap between rich and poor people is increasing. Nearly half the world’s population live in poverty, 70% are women. We have the power to change this. Campaigners worldwide will STAND UP and TAKE ACTION to push their governments for more and better aid, debt cancellation, education for all boys and girls, healthcare, trade justice, gender equality and public accountability.

SCREAM Halte au travail des enfants! La défense des droits des enfants
Les jeunes ont un rôle important à jouer dans les activités de sensibilisation relatives à la justice sociale et dans l’exercice de leur influence au sein de leurs communautés pour le changement social. Par la responsabilisation des jeunes, la reconnaissance de leur créativité et la mise en valeur de leur contribution, nous renforçons la portée de leur engagement à la campagne pour l’élimination du travail des enfants. A cette fin, l’IPEC a lancé une initiative sur l’éducation et la mobilisation sociale pour aider les enseignants du monde entier à comprendre et à promouvoir la prise de conscience sur le travail des enfants auprès des jeunes. «SCREAM, Halte au travail des enfants»

SCREAM Stop al Lavoro Minorile, Sostenere i Diritti dei Bambini attraverso l’Educazione, l’Arte ed i Media
Il lavoro minorile verte sullo sfruttamento della fascia più vulnerabile della nostra società: i bambini. Sappiamo che sono oltre 246 milioni i ragazzi al di sotto dei 18 anni che ogni giorno, nel mondo, sono costretti a lavorare. Quasi tre quarti di essi, vale a dire 180 milioni, si trovano in pericolo di vita. Molti vengono privati dell’istruzione e sono vittime di abusi fisici, sessuali e psicologici. A causa del lavoro cui sono costretti, alcuni subiscono traumi che li rendono invalidi e altri muoiono prima di raggiungere l’età adulta. Altri rimangono segnati per il resto della vita. Per molti il fenomeno del lavoro minorile è invisibile o perché i bambini lavorano in ambiti che sono invisibili, come il lavoro domestico e la prostituzione, o perché la società preferisce non vedere. Rendere visibile la piaga del lavoro minorile aiuterà la società a scuotersi dalla sua indifferenza. Attraverso l’IPEC (Programma internazionale per l’eliminazione del lavoro minorile), l’ILO (Organizzazione Internazionale del Lavoro) sta compiendo ogni sforzo per far sì che il lavoro minorile divenga storia passata. Poiché le cause del fenomeno sono molte e complesse, dobbiamo affrontare la questione su diversi fronti, attraverso la ratifica e l’applicazione di convenzioni internazionali, nonché di programmi che implicano la mobilitazione dei gruppi sociali più importanti. I giovani in particolare svolgono un ruolo importante nella sensibilizzazione della comunità di appartenenza rispetto alle questioni della giustizia sociale e sono in grado di far sentire la propria influenza sui processi di cambiamento della società. Sebbene i bambini, gli adolescenti e i giovani costituiscano una proporzione significativa della popolazione del pianeta, gli viene lasciato loro ben poco spazio per esprimere la loro opinione su come funziona il mondo. In questo modo, per quando saranno diventati adulti, il loro modo di pensare e di agire sarà così fortemente improntato al modello imposto dalla società che la preziosa prospettiva delle loro riflessioni sarà andata perduta. Potenziando i giovani, responsabilizzandoli e riconoscendo la validità del loro contributo, speriamo di incanalarne la creatività e l’impegno nella campagna mondiale per l’eliminazione del lavoro minorile. Con questo presupposto, l’IPEC ha lanciato una nuova iniziativa di mobilitazione socio-educativa, “SCREAM Stop Child Labour”, per aiutare gli educatori di tutto il mondo a promuovere la comprensione e la sensibilizzazione riguardo al fenomeno del lavoro minorile fra i giovani e le loro comunità di appartenenza. SCREAM è a favore del supporto dei diritti dei bambini attraverso l’educazione, l’arte e i mezzi di comunicazione, ma riflette anche il doloroso silenzio dei bambini lavoratori, nonché la necessità di dar loro una voce. Attraverso metodi di insegnamento innovativi e creativi, il programma SCREAM mira a informare i giovani del mondo in cui vivono e delle ingiustizie esistenti, focalizzando l’attenzione sul lavoro minorile in modo che essi possano a loro volta farsi ovunque portavoce dei bambini lavoratori. Il programma vuole caricare i ragazzi di una responsabilità, ma anche aiutarli a sviluppare una reazione adeguata. SCREAM deve molta della sua ispirazione alle arti visive, alla letteratura e alla recitazione. La drammatizzazione è un strumento particolarmente potente per raggiungere i giovani. Il teatro parla una lingua universale, che trascende i confini geografici e le barriere culturali. Inoltre, è stato sempre utilizzato, nella storia, come veicolo di coesione sociale. Dunque, il programma promuove la recitazione e la drammatizzazione come strumenti che i giovani possono utilizzare per esplorare i propri sentimenti, esprimersi e rivolgere il proprio messaggio alla comunità. Per un’autentica comprensione dell’orrore quotidiano che vivono i bambini lavoratori, gli individui devono partire dal più fondamentale dei presupposti umani. Con l’aiuto e la guida adeguati, i giovani possono acquisire strumenti e fiducia per creare e mettere in scena una propria rappresentazione teatrale, ovviamente adeguata alla loro condizione culturale e sociale, nonché al loro linguaggio e al loro gergo. Molti dei nostri affiliati sperano, come noi, che SCREAM possa essere diffusamente realizzato in tutto il mondo. In nome loro e di milioni di bambini che ogni giorno vengono sfruttati, raccomandiamo di adottare SCREAM a tutti gli Stati membri, alle autorità in campo educativo, alle associazioni di insegnanti, imprenditori e lavoratori, alle ONG e alle associazioni civili, agli educatori, nonché alle organizzazioni di qualunque tipo e ai singoli individui che abbiano l’opportunità di interagire con i giovani in ambito educativo. Si tratta di un programma destinato a migliorare e a consolidarsi precisamente attraverso l’uso. Dunque, usiamolo!

SCREAM ¡Alto al trabajo infantil! Defensa de los derechos del niño a través de la educación, las artes y los medios de comunicación
El trabajo infantil es sinónimo de explotación de los seres más vulnerables de nuestra sociedad: las niñas y los niños. Sabemos que en el mundo hay más de 245 millones de niñas y niños menores de 18 años que cada día van a trabajar. Aproximadamente las tres cuartas partes –casi 180 millones– lo hacen en condiciones peligrosas que ponen en peligro su vida. En muchos casos, se les priva de educación y son víctimas de vejaciones físicas, sexuales y emocionales. A raíz del trabajo que hacen, algunos quedarán discapacitados físicamente o perecerán antes de llegar a la edad adulta. Otros sufrirán de traumas emocionales por el resto de su vida. Para muchos, el trabajo infantil es un fenómeno invisible ya sea porque se oculta, como en el caso del servicio doméstico o la explotación sexual con fines comerciales, o bien, porque la sociedad está demasiado predispuesta a hacer como que no ve. Dar visibilidad a las niñas y los niños que trabajan contribuirá a que la sociedad deje de ser indiferente al drama que viven. A través del Programa Internacional para la Erradicación del Trabajo Infantil, conocido por la sigla en inglés IPEC, la Organización Internacional del Trabajo (OIT) está a la vanguardia de los esfuerzos mundiales para terminar con este problema. Dado que las causas del trabajo infantil son numerosas y complejas, tenemos que abordar la cuestión en diversos frentes que van de la ratificación y aplicación de los convenios y convenciones internacionales a programas prácticos en el terreno, pasando por la movilización de sectores clave de la sociedad. Los jóvenes, en particular, pueden desempeñar un papel importante para concienciar* sobre cuestiones relativas a la justicia social y ejercer su influencia en las comunidades, promoviendo el cambio social. Niñas, niños y adolescentes y jóvenes representan una proporción significativa de la población mundial, pero se les dan muy pocas oportunidades de decir lo que piensan acerca de cómo va el mundo. De ahí que cuando llegan a la edad adulta, les hayamos inculcado nuestra manera de ver, de pensar y de actuar, a tal punto, que la valiosa perspectiva que podían aportar ha caído en el olvido. Capacitando a los jóvenes, atribuyéndoles tareas y reconociendo el valor de su aporte, esperamos encauzar el acerbo de creatividad y el empeño que pueden aportar a la campaña por la erradicación del trabajo infantil. Habida cuenta de lo antedicho, el IPEC lanzó la iniciativa ¡Alto al trabajo infantil! Proyecto SCREAM de formación y movilización social, para ayudar a docentes de todo el mundo a instruir y concienciar a los jóvenes acerca del trabajo infantil. SCREAM es la sigla en inglés de Supporting Children's Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media (Defensa de los derechos del niño a través de la educación, las artes y los medios de comunicación) y también traduce el sufrimiento que soportan en silencio los niños que trabajan y a quienes hay que dar voz. Utilizando métodos pedagógicos creativos e innovadores, se pretende informar a los jóvenes sobre el mundo en el que viven y las injusticias que existen, haciendo hincapié en el trabajo infantil, para que ellos, a su vez, sean portavoces de las niñas y los niños que trabajan en todas partes del mundo. A través de este proyecto, se les asignan tareas y se les apoya en la búsqueda de intervenciones apropiadas. El Proyecto SCREAM se inspira en gran medida de las artes plásticas, el arte dramático y la redacción creativa. El arte dramático es una herramienta idónea para llegar a los jóvenes. Su lenguaje es universal y trasciende las fronteras geográficas y culturales. A través de los módulos Escenificación y Arte dramático, el Proyecto SCREAM promueve la interpretación como medio de que los jóvenes exploren sus sentimientos, los expresen, y transmitan su mensaje al resto de la comunidad. Para comprender cabalmente el horror cotidiano del trabajo infantil, hay que llegar a la fibra más profunda del ser humano. Si se les brinda ayuda y orientación, los jóvenes adquieren las competencias y la confianza necesarias para crear y representar una obra de teatro acorde con su contexto sociocultural y en su propio idioma o dialecto. Muchos de nuestros asociados comparten nuestra esperanza de que el Proyecto SCREAM se utilice ampliamente en todas partes del mundo. En su nombre y en nombre de los millones de niños que siguen siendo explotados en el trabajo, lo recomendamos a Estados Miembros, autoridades de educación, organizaciones de docentes, organizaciones de empleadores, organizaciones de trabajadores, ONG y organizaciones comunitarias, maestros y educadores, así como a toda persona u organización que tiene contacto con niñas y niños en un contexto educativo. El Proyecto SCREAM crecerá mejor y con mayor vigor gracias a su utilización, entonces, ¡usémoslo!

In many parts of the world, sex workers have been among the groups most vulnerable to and most affected by HIV since the beginning of the AIDS pandemic. After more than a decade of research and intervention in sex work settings there is a substantial body of knowledge on the behaviours that put sex workers, their clients and regular partners at risk and on the contextual factors that create vulnerability to HIV/AIDS.

THE AFRICAN CONSENSUS AND PLAN OF ACTION: LEADERSHIP TO OVERCOME HIV/AIDS
Now is the decisive moment in Africa’s struggle to overcome the continent-wide threat of HIV/AIDS. Success in overcoming the HIV/AIDS pandemic demands an exceptional personal, moral, political and social commitment on the part of every African. Leadership in the family, the community, the workplace, schools, civil society, government and at an international level is needed to halt the preventable spread of HIV/AIDS, and to provide a decent life for all citizens of Africa. Each and every one of the leadership acts necessary to prevent HIV/AIDS and to help those living with HIV/AIDS, without exception, are things we want anyway for a better, more developed Africa, and must be implemented in full and without delay. Much has been achieved. Many African communities and several entire nations have shown that it is possible to contain and reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. Success is a reality in many places and is possible across the continent. The Africa Development Forum 2000 is a breakthrough. It represents a watershed in national leaders’ readiness to address intimate personal beliefs and behaviour in a public and political manner. It marks an unprecedented collective commitment to the struggle against HIV/AIDS. With the required resources and the right leadership at all levels, we will win. Too much time has been wasted. Too many lives have been lost. Now is the moment.

The Case for Investing in Young People
This publication focuses on national efforts to reduce poverty and presents seven arguments for why national public policy makers should give more attention to young people, if these efforts are to be successful. This paper offers a conceptual framework to work out what arguments and supporting evidence in relation to young people are likely to be most appropriate to apply in the context of developing or refining a national poverty reduction strategy.

The Role of the Youth in Community Development
Young people play a crucial role in the prospect for development and should be included in every National Development Plan for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). But reality shows that attention to youth has not been enough and more needs to be done to make sure that special attention is given to young people, especially with regards to education, employment and health. The signed Millennium Declaration by Governments promising to “free men, women and children from the dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty”, committing developed and developing countries alike to eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will need an integrated participatory process from all sectors. In view of this the youth has a pivotal role to play in community development to achieving the MDGs by 2015 but the question is: up to which extent do young people actually take up community development initiatives? To this effect a day Training Seminar was convened to celebrate the Global Youth Service Day, With the objective, To create awareness about the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) achievable by 2015 and develop the concept civic engagement; Train the Youth on their role in achieving the MDGs through community involvement. Finally, Participants at the end of the training were to initiate community based projects for implementation.

The State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA) 2008
Biofuels present both opportunities and risks. The outcome would depend on the specific context of the country and the policies adopted,” said FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf today. “Current policies tend to favour producers in some developed countries over producers in most developing countries. The challenge is to reduce or manage the risks while sharing the opportunities more widely.” Biofuel production based on agricultural commodities increased more than threefold from 2000 to 2007, and now covers nearly two percent of the world’s consumption of transport fuels. The growth is expected to continue, but the contribution of liquid biofuels (mostly ethanol and biodiesel) to transport energy, and even more so, to global energy use will remain limited. Despite the limited importance of liquid biofuels in terms of global energy supply, the demand for agricultural feedstocks (sugar, maize, oilseeds) for liquid biofuels will continue to grow over the next decade and perhaps beyond, putting upward pressure on food prices. Biofuel policies and subsidies should be urgently reviewed in order to preserve the goal of world food security, protect poor farmers, promote broad-based rural development and ensure environmental sustainability, FAO said in a new edition of its annual flagship publication The State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA) 2008.

The state of youth in Nigeria
Nigeria has what it takes to bring up great youth: youth in industry, youth in politic, development and youth in economics, etc. These youth has an important role in the future of our nation. However, today our streets are littered with the young who suffer the indignity of begging for bread crusts in order to stay alive. It is no news that there is an epidemical phenomenon of street children who are reared on free-range system. Child prostitution and mass destitution of the young. There is a high rate of drop-out amongst our young people from different institutions of learning on pecuniary grounds. Most of these drop-outs often end up in urban centres in search of menial jobs. Some other end – up on the streets, high way junctions, and traffic lights hawking different items as “mobile super markets”. The State of the Nigeria Youths and a new future 2007!

Time to Cut African Hunger
The challenge of reducing hunger and poverty in Africa is formidable. Despite pledges by Africa and the industrialized countries at the 1996 World Food Summit to cut hunger in half by 2015, little progress has been made. But there are reasons to believe that these trends can change, even in the near future. The events of September 11 have caused the world to consider how factors such as poverty and hunger can create breeding grounds for global instability. Conditions in Africa are also improving in many respects. A number of countries are making solid progress in governance and economic reform. New markets are opening and new technology is becoming available that will allow greater growth in agriculture and the rural sector in Africa. These factors offer renewed hope that,working together,we can reduce African poverty and hunger.

Une société en déficit humain
Un Rapport de 29 pages sur les conséquences sociales de l'appauvrissement, publié par Centraide Québec Un million de personnes habitent dans la grande région de Québec et de Chaudière-Appalaches. De ce nombre, 180 000 vivent actuellement, en 1998, sous le seuil de faible revenu; le tiers d’entre elles, soit 60 000, doivent être considérées comme très pauvres 2. C’est principalement auprès de ces personnes qu’oeuvrent les organismes communautaires appuyés par Centraide Québec. La pauvreté, c’est la privation. Quand on est pauvre, on est toujours privé de quelque chose : d’aliments, de confort, voire de soins, d’information, d’instruction, parfois même de ce qui est considéré comme le minimum nécessaire.

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is the most ratified document in the UN's history. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, often referred to as CRC or UNCRC, is an international convention setting out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of children. Nations that ratify this international convention are bound by it by international law. Compliance is monitored by the United Nations' Committee on the Rights of the Child which is composed of members from countries around the world. Once a year, the Committee submits a report to the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, which also hears a statement from the CRC Chair, and the Assembly adopts a Resolution on the Rights of the Child.[1] Governments of countries that have ratified the Convention are required to report to, and appear before, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child periodically to be examined on their progress with regards to the advancement of the implementation of the Convention and the status of child rights in their country. Their reports and the committee's written views and concerns are available on the committee's website. All member nation states (countries) of the United Nations, except the United States and Somalia,[2] have ratified it. The United Nations General Assembly agreed to adopt the Convention into international law as an advisory resolution on November 20, 1989; it came into force on September 2, 1990, after it was ratified by the required number of nations. The Convention generally defines a child as any person under the age of 18, unless an earlier age of majority is recognized by a country's law.

Using Gender Research in Development
IFPRI Food Security in Practice No. 2 This practitioners' guide bridges the gap between research and practice by providing up-to-date, relevant information on why and how gender issues, when taken into account, can improve the design, implementation, and effectiveness of development projects and policies. IFPRI's work on gender and intrahousehold issues has already influenced programs, such as conditional cash transfers in Latin America, by contributing to the growing evidence that households do not make decisions as one, and that resources controlled by women lead to improved child outcomes. IFPRI's gender research has also contributed to a wider acceptance by policymakers that paying attention to decision making processes within the household is essential to the success of development interventions.

V2 Volunteerism Action Guide: Multiplying the Power of Service

Vida con Propósitos
"Cambia tu manera de pensar para que cambie tu manera de vivir" Los talleres de formación integral establecidos en el módulo de educación para el trabajo del proyecto “Madres Empresarias”, representan el fundamento básico sobre el cual descansará toda la estructura de rehabilitación familiar y social de las participantes de dicho proyecto. El objetivo de estos talleres de formación es el de sensibilizar a las madres para descubrir e identificar las causas que han originado el deterioro de su hábitat familiar y motivarlas a reorientar su manera de pensar para que puedan cambiar su manera de vivir. Es decir, ayudarlas a comprender lo necesario que es para su desarrollo personal y familiar una “vida con propósitos”. ¿Cuantas veces nos sentimos desorientados o desubicados en el ejercicio de la mayoría de nuestras actividades, sean estas domésticas, profesionales, artísticas, etc., etc., porque sólo vemos en ellas un medio para sobrevivir?.... para disponer, con muchísima dificultad, de un inadecuado techo, vestidos, alimentos deficientes y cubrir a duras penas los gastos ocasionados por los servicios. En ocasiones realizamos esas actividades con esmero, agrado y con cierto placer…… pero, sin embargo, nuestro corazón está cargado de insatisfacción, tristeza, desilusión, decepción y rabia; sentimientos estos que nos impiden ver la vida con gozo y ser felices. Esto se debe a que usualmente erramos en el propósito y pensamos que cuando logremos esto o aquello habremos llegado a la plenitud. Sin embargo cuando accedemos a lo que tanto hemos deseado y por lo que sin tregua hemos luchado nos sentimos tan vacíos como al principio. Esos logros nos producen una alegría efímera porque son simples metas circunstanciales que nos trazamos para alimentar nuestro ego y no un propósito concebido para crecer cualitativamente. Es decir, para ser mejores personas, mejores amigos, mejores padres, mejores hijos, mejores orientadores y mejores ciudadanos. Jorge Enrique Hernández Life With Intentions The factories of integral formation established in the module of education for the work of the project "Enterprising Mothers", represent the basic foundation on which all the structure of familiar and social rehabilitation of the participants of this project will rest. The objective of these factories of formation is the one to sensitize the mothers to discover and to identify the causes that have originated the deterioration of their familiar habitat and to motivate them to reorient their way to think so that they can change his way to live. That is to say, to help them to include/understand the necessary thing that it is for his personal and familiar development a "life with intentions". Whichever times we felt disoriented or out of position in the exercise of most of our activities, are these domestic, professional, artistic ones, etc., etc., because we only see in them an average one to survive.... in order to arrange, with very many difficulty, of an inadequate ceiling, deficient dresses, foods and with great difficulty to cover the expenses caused by the services. Sometimes we made those activities with care, affability and with certain to please...... but, nevertheless, our heart is loaded of dissatisfaction, sadness, disappointment, deception and rages; feelings these that they prevent to see the life us with joy and be happy. This must to that usually we were mistaken in the intention and we thought that when we obtain this or that we will have arrived at the fullness. Nevertheless when we accede to which as much we have wished and reason why without truce we have fought we felt as empty as in the beginning. Those profits produce an ephemeral joy to us because they are simple circumstantial goals that we drew up to feed our ego and a conceived intention not to grow qualitatively. That is to say, to be better people, better friends, better parents, better children, better orientation and better citizens. Jorge Enrique Hernandez

World AIDS Day Campaign Kit (2007)
For World AIDS Day 2008, GYCA is partnering again with World AIDS Campaign to coordinate youth-led World AIDS Day events worldwide. This year’s theme is leadership: which gives you an opportunity to highlight youth leadership through a wide range of possible activities in your community. Last year, GYCA mobilized its powerful network and members organized 50 events in 30 countries.1 This year, we are hoping to target more youth in more countries to “Take the Lead” in ending the spread of HIV! Focusing on our theme of leadership, you can organize an event that best suits the needs of your own community. It could be a networking meeting, a training, a film screening, a panel discussion, a letter writing session to public officials on a particular issue, a protest of a bad policy, program, or human rights abuse, a fundraiser, a volunteer service day at a clinic or hospice, or whatever else you think would work well in your community. We hope that this kit, together with the enclosed materials from World AIDS Campaign, will help make your event a success!

World Health Report 2008
World Health Report calls for return to primary health care approach. It called for the critical assessment of the way that health care is organized, financed, and delivered in rich and poor countries around the world. The WHO report documents a number of failures and shortcomings that have left the health status of different populations, both within and between countries, dangerously out of balance. “The World Health Report sets out a way to tackle inequities and inefficiencies in health care, and its recommendations need to be heeded,” said WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan at the launch of the report in Almaty, Kazakhstan. “A world that is greatly out of balance in matters of health is neither stable nor secure.” The report, titled Primary health care – now more than ever, commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Alma-Ata International Conference on Primary Health Care held in 1978. That event was the first to put health equity on the international political agenda.

Youth Action Ambassador Application
YPWC is entirely run and operated by university-aged young people, called Youth Action Advocates. We are not an organization under the umbrella of a larger NGO, business, or network. We operate entirely thanks to a volunteer staff of young people. The Youth Action Ambassadors act as the core leadership of Young People We Care (YPWC) –we do everything from respond to emails from youth involved to working with youth on the facets of the UN Millennium Development Goals and other global issues that affect youth. In general, we educate young people, inspire them and work with middle or high school age youth, fundraise to keep our organization afloat, teach youth around the world about the global issues including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), help design programs that empower youth to construct and implement service projects, and work on general infrastructure maintenance within the organization. It’s a team effort. On a weekly/monthly basis, we are tangibly making a difference in the lives of young people –that’s not a cliché, it’s a fact. Youth Action Ambassadors (YAAs) are essentially the volunteer staff of Young People We Care (YPWC). YPWC YAAs are not paid for their work –these are volunteer positions. By becoming an YPWC YAAs, you join a team of youth working hard to make a positive difference in the world. We are trying to do something that has never been done before!

Youth and MDGs E-consultation
The aim of this e-consultation was to engage youth around the MDGs and to survey various topics that relate to youth and the MDGs. Responses were used for the report "Youth and MDGs: Challenges and Opportunities for Implementation". The group and website now serves as a forum of discussion for youth worldwide on the topic of the MDGs.

Youth and the Millennium Development Goals
Young people ages 15 to 24 make up 1.2 billion of the world's human capital. Around the world, many of them are already making contributions to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and their work should be further acknowledged and strengthened. Increasingly, youth are recognized as key participants in decision-making and development, as reflected in the growing presence of non-governmental youth organizations and the upsurge of youth advisory boards and committees to international institutions and programs. Yet building the capacity of and creating sustained partnerships with young people are crucial strategies to achieveing the MDGs that have not been fully realized by the international community. This paper aims to provide an overbiew of youth participation as it currently exists, to outline the ways in which youth are directly affected by each Goal, to demonstrate how young people are contributing to the MDGs, and to provide 'Options for Action' that governments, the United Nations system, donors and other actors can harness, support, and scale-up in order to support young people in making significant contributions to achieving the MDGs.

Youth Consultations for a Post-2015 Framework: A Toolkit
This toolkit has been designed to facilitate conversations with young people around the world on the subject of the post-2015 development framework, i.e. what should follow the Millennium Development Goals. It has been put together with specific input from partners in Sierra Leone, India, Nepal, Colombia, the United Kingdom, Kyrgyzstan, Croatia, Kenya, Romania, the Philippines, Ghana and Tanzania, but could be used by any youth organisation in any country wishing to stimulate conversation about a new development framework and what that would look like for young people.

Youth Earth Plan
The Youth Earth Plan is a plan to address the global problems of the 21st century by creating necessary cultural and institutional changes. Young adults from around the world contributed to this plan in the hopes that our voices will be heard and that leaders will think about our generation and future generations when making decisions. The Youth Earth Plan includes: - A review and analysis of international outlook studies on the future of our economy, social conditions, peace/security, resources, and environment. - An assessment of our fundamental global challenge in the 21st century. - Requests that each of our culture-shaping institutions make specific changes.

Youth Need an AIDS Vaccine
An AIDS vaccine, used in combination with other prevention tools, will be uniquely suited to the needs of youth, but no prevention tool will protect young people if it is not designed to respond to their unique social, legal and cultural realities.
