Always dreaming!!!!!!!!!! Bloody hell, Iam, I always do, in fact, Iam dreaming right now. I think (and I may be wrong,) but this is my time to dream, I mean, like, really dreaming! Dreaming BIG! My younger brother, Kanaahe IV always tells me, ‘If you ever eat shit, eat a lot of SHIT’ so that you don’t regret! LOL
This month, brought me yet another eye opener! All months are always interesting to me:- a reason why I need to thank the African gods. Not many people have their gods close to them all the time. Sometimes, the gods could have taken a nap, or just ‘went out’ if you know what I mean This month started with my new appointment: Hold up! I mean, OFFICIELEMENT, the Programmes Manager for Community Based Health Care and First Aid programmes of the prestigeous Uganda Red Cross Society (Check www.redcrossug.org ). Now, this aint no joke: Not only does it mean that, my time for football has been cut by a half, but also because, Officially: the Uganda Red Cross owns me! That’s affirmative ladies and gentlemen, and my sincere apologies to my parents<<Your son is OLD now (or is he?) In the heat of the moment, I was summoned to support the Uganda Red Cross in responding to Kasese Floods Mission, in South Western Uganda where a record 25000 people were affected. Now, Iam not the PRO, please tweet her @UgandaRedCross to get correct figures and updates. While there, I witnessed once again, how small changes can easily make a difference! Simple things ranging from, ensuring meetings of Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction Groups, to giving a Red Cross arm band to a field first aider…all this needs to be involved in the gist of things!
Also, I wouldn’t for any gold in the world miss the UN Youth Envoy Mr #Alhendawi’s first ever google hangout! I caught this live from the field in the heart of Ntoroko-a close district to Lake Albert! Thanks to technlogy, I could participate and well, needless to mention, I was the first to have my tweet read and aswered by the Youth Envoy!
Did you miss our first Google+ Hangout under the theme “ONE UN: Uniting for Youth?”? Do you want to learn more about the UN plans to work with and for youth? You can watch the video here:
Then, I also got another chance to be a student, this time with VSO! For a long 1 week, I was in Kampala, Uganda to understand the philosophy of VSO, as well as support and encourage volunteerism by putting people first! While, I’d thought that I knew quite a lot about monitoring and evaluation, I coiled my tail and concentrated: and I swear, in the name of my earthly father, that I found it interesting! In summary, I wont say, that Iam satisfied with myself, but more and more, I realise that Iam not the ideal political guy! Its on the same basements that I henceforth divorce the Dream of being the Next UN Secretary General to the NEXT WHO DIRECTOR GENERAL! That’s more confortable, besides, I have been at the WHO Hqtrs in Geneva, and let me just say that, I loved them! Lets see what next week brings!
