Erik geht Tansania

Ich bin fertig! Wieder daheim, die meisten meiner Freunde wieder gesehen und endlich wieder ein blutiges Steak gegessen. Jetzt gammel ich einfach nur zu Hause rum. Perfekt also, um den letzten Blogeintrag zu schreiben. Viel Erfreuliches zu berichten habe ich allerdings leider nicht…

In den letzten Monaten hatte ich einen Südafrikaner kennengelernt, Ntsiki, der allerdings in Tansania und in Songwe aufgewachsen ist. Sein Vater hatte damals die Zementfabrik gebaut, einen großen Teil des Dorfes und die Schule, an der ich unterrichtet habe. Mit Ntsiki habe ich einen Großteil meiner Zeit verbracht, denn wir waren einfach auf einem Level. So war er beispielsweise der einzige Tansanier, den ich getroffen habe, der auch Atheist war. Eine regelrechte Seltenheit in Tansania! Leider hatte er ein schlechten Ruf nicht nur bei den Leuten im Dorf, sondern auch bei meiner Schule. Und hier fängt’s an…

Ich wurde vom Headmaster, Brother James, angesprochen und indirekt aufgefordert…

WHO Issues Warning About Measles Outbreak #Europe

The World Health Organization has issued a warning, after 35 people died from measles across Europe in the past year. Measles is entirely preventable with a vaccine, but continues to spread and contribute to deaths around Europe.

Since 2016, there have been over 3,300 cases of measles in Italy alone. The latest fatality came from that very region – a boy that was just six years old.

“Every death or disability caused by this vaccine-preventable disease is an unacceptable tragedy,” said Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO regional director for Europe, in a press release. “We are very concerned that although a safe, effective and affordable vaccine is available, measles remains a leading cause of death among children worldwide, and unfortunately Europe is not spared.” Continue reading “WHO Issues Warning About Measles Outbreak #Europe”

Scientists have developed a banana that could help children with pro-vitamin A deficiency in Uganda

The so-called “golden bananas”, named for their appearance, were developed by a team from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia, led by Professor James Dale. The findings have been published in the Plant Biotechnology Journal.

It’s hoped that by 2021, Ugandan farmers will be growing bananas rich in pro-vitamin A. About $10 million was supplied by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for the research.

The process involves modifying single banana cells, which then grow into banana embryos and germinate into plants. More than 12 years of laboratory tests and field trials in north Queensland were necessary to perfect the technique. Ugandan scientists are now replicating the technique with local banana varieties.

World’s poorest countries to aim for 100% green energy

Members of the Climate Vulnerable Forum issued their statement on the last day of the Marrakech climate conference.

Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Haiti, among others, say they will update their national plans on cutting carbon before 2020.

Delegates here welcomed the move, saying it was “inspirational”.

These two weeks of negotiations have been overshadowed to an extent by reaction to the election of Donald Trump to the US presidency.

But in an effort to show that even the world’s poorest countries are committed to dealing with global warming, the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) members have issued a promise to fully green their economies between 2030 and 2050.

Education Programs

#EndMalaria

We recently started doing our educational programs in some villages in Taraba State Nigeria! We saw huge success with this first one and will be conducting another one very soon! Education is a key element for eliminating malaria once and for all, and we appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support through this process!

Malaria is avoidable. But we need to continue to take the necessary steps to help vulnerable populations in preventing this disease!
