Proposal for Stitch Uganda Together

Post by Corazon on Sun 24 Feb 2008, 2:28 am

Answering Our Higher Calling
Stitch Uganda Together is an Action Hero Network mission to create a cultural exchange between students at Forest Hills School in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada and youth in Uganda, Africa. It involves donating sewing machines, providing free hammocks to homeless children, and sharing the process online through web cam and digital video as a demonstration of grassroots activism.

We each have the responsibility to continue the growth and evolution of humanity. Be aware that what you do and what you create will have a lasting impression on generations to come. With this awareness, create beauty that will nurture and sustain these future generations and contribute to a more loving and beautiful world for them to live in. Allow yourself to visualize and recognize what you can offer as an unconditional gift for the future of humanity.
-Voice of the Galaxy, by Stacia Alana-Leah and Raymond Mardyks

Wealth of Experience

We have technology to instantly communicate all over the planet, and transportation to carry us anywhere, but what is important to know and worth doing? How can we enrich our lives and make a positive impact in the lives of others?

Being responsible global citizens, we take on challenges far removed from our comfortable lives, because the reward for our service is greater than that which can be measured by material wealth. Not only are we helping others, we also benefit greatly from expanded awareness, meaningful relationships and deep appreciation for the basic elements of life that often get taken for granted, such as clean drinking water. I learned this living with people in rural Mexicowealth is not how much you have, it is how much you appreciate what you have.


Tribal Workshop

As Citizenship Education Facilitator at Forest Hills School, I offer youth in grades 5 to 8 opportunities to develop character, express creativity and cultivate organizational skills through a variety of artistic workshops which lead to community events where they will be challenged to shine. Using Tribes Learning Communities, we are creating culture through collective consciousness and self expression, which values relationships and environmental awareness.

Everyone has a special gift to share, but too often students move through the system without a lot of attention put into discovering their hidden talents and desires. This unique elective course I have designed is focused on filling this need, and requires children to take responsibility for their personal development and encourages them to actively participate in their communities.

Stitch Uganda Together

Fact: Northern Uganda has been ravaged by civil war for the last 20 years. The people have been robbed of their homes and their livelihoods. The children have been robbed of educations and often times their families through killing, rape of young girls and stealing young boys, forcing them to be child soldiers. Currently, 80% of the overall population of Uganda is youth, of the 80%, 39% are orphans, and 41% are infected with HIV/AIDS. Every family has been torn apart to some extent or another. It is time to help Stitch Uganda Together.

Teaching by example, I will spend the first three weeks of March in Uganda setting up community sewing rooms that will make hammocks for homeless children. These cocoon-style hammocks keep kids healthy off the wet ground and protected from mosquitoes that carry malaria. Many of the boys and girls I encounter will have AIDS. A comfortable place to sleep can significantly help their immune systems and enable them to enjoy a fuller life. The impact of this project will be limited only by the amount of resources we can gather to buy sewing machines, fabric and rope. The cost of a sewing machine is approximately $100, and other materials will be around $15 per hammock.

The goal of this project is not just to provide free hammocks to homeless children or to provide these young people and their communities with a new income generating opportunity. It is a popular movement to demonstrate how the collective power of many people focusing their energy united in purpose can do amazing things, which will inspire a new generation of activists who will accomplish much more.

Here at the school we will have a visual representation of this project in the form of a large tree rooted in our community of supporters from whom the resources are being gathered. Lines will be drawn through the trunk to become branches, which are the sewing machines, and then to the leaves which are the hammocks. Photos of people who receive hammocks and sewing machines will become the fruit on the tree. This tree will serve as an important symbol to show students how grassroots activism connects people to accomplish great tasks through common vision and organization.

Spreading Positive Messages

To amplify the effect of this mission, the journey will be documented on digital video and broadcast live through web cam. Students at Forest Hills and many other schools in New Brunswick have Smart Boards (online interfaces the size of blackboards) in their classrooms and will have the opportunity to experience culture exchanges with youth in Uganda. A youth activism conference in Moncton on March 14th has also requested that I connect with them online. The documentary will later be presented at the Evolve festival, and submitted to the Tidal Wave Film Festival to raise awareness about issues facing Ugandans and gather support for the many non-profit organizations doing important on-going work.

Musician, Educator and filmmaker, Aaron Ableman (www.ablemonk.org) is also planning to join me in Uganda. We will add the video we capture to a global collaboration entitled, Pangea: Stories of Unity and Connection.

A team of filmmakers, artists, social & ecological visionaries are weaving film footage from around the world as evidence to the common needs, ideas, and webs which unite people across time zones, nationalities, and cultural divides. From India to Jamaica, Cuba to Uganda, USA to Lesotho, it is the stories of struggle, inspiration, and ingenuity which never have enough media attention. Ranging from world famous musicians to grassroots organizers, from bee farming country folk to urban ghetto youth, we are privy to an in-depth collage of real life witnesses. A variety of themes sing the praise of clean air, water, land, of laughter, music, spirituality, and finally, the struggle to respect familial roots, community ethic, and ancient traditions above the raging storms of suffering and pollution. Through this creative testament, the film calls to honor the interdependent nature of life on planet earth, thereby ensuring further means of resilience and universal suffrage.

Many courageous humanitarians from New Brunswick are doing great work in Africa, including: John Tremble, the Parish Priest of Quispamsis who built a girls school in Uganda with a huge computer lab; Mark Leger toured several months in Ghana with Journalists Without Borders, and Julie Dingwell, director of AIDS Saint John, is currently working in Swaziland, just to name a few. We plan to have these people and many other inspiring action heroes from our community share their stories in person with the students at Forest Hills School. We need these tales of humanitarian adventures to off-set the dominant corporate media culture focused on fear, consumerism, competition and violence.

Preparation

Over the past year, students at Beaconsfield Middle School, Morna Heights Elementary and Rothesay High have sewn hammocks to prove that youth can learn to do it easily, and some of those hammocks are going to Uganda to complete the connection of the lesson.

Several classes at Beaconsfield, two classes of World Issues students at Saint John High, and all students in grades 5 to 8 at Forest Hills watched Invisible Children, a film exposing the effects of a 20 year-long war on the children of Northern Uganda, which you can view online: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=3166797753930210643&q=%22Invisible+Children%22

At festivals and markets last summer and fall, hammocks were set up for the public to try out and learn about the project. Approximately 40 hammocks were sold to support this effort.

Rogers TV interviewed me twice on its live Daytime talk show, and CBC TV broadcasted two updates on the project, including a feature story Christmas Eve sharing the students at Morna Heights sewing hammocks.

The shots went in my arm many months ago, and I now have lots of contacts in Uganda to help keep me safe. Im sure this journey will be life changing, as it was for others Ive found through research.

Invitation

Everyone wants to be rich. Some of us are fortunate to have more opportunities and resources than others. Some of us are not surviving. We dwell in horrifying conditions and dont know any way out.

It is our obligation, being educated and living abundantly, to do what we can to help others less fortunate. The interesting twist is that the more we give of ourselves, and truly understand the hardships others are going through, the richer we feel. Being of service to others gives our life value and meaning.

There are many projects worth your time and resources that will greatly benefit your community and environment, which is your life support system. I am asking you now to invest in this timely grassroots effort that will make a profound impact in the lives of hundreds of people who need your help in Africa, and hundreds of thousands more around the planet that will be inspired by the positive media and cultural exchanges that will be created.

The mission is simple. Large donations are not required. The objective is to get small investments from a wide base of support to pay for sewing machines, fabric, video equipment and transportation. Can you afford to give just $10? That is all we are asking.

This is how we do it!

In Canada, make your tax-deductible investment by writing a check to the New Brunswick Minister of Finance, c/o: Forest Hills School, Stitch Uganda

If you dont care about tax deductions, write the check simply to Stitch Uganda Together, or give cash, and send it to Forest Hills School or mail to:

In the US, your contribution is tax-deductible through The International Humanities Center, but people anywhere can use this Paypal link for fast and secure delivery: http://www.ihcenter.org/groups/actionheronetwork.html

Thanks for your interest and taking the time to read this proposal. Ill be happy to receive feedback and any questions you have.

In service and celebration,
