PEACE! (Sum41 -Still Waiting) sNathi  Length: 2:40


Series of still shots on the theme of Peace. Very appealing for high school.

In the classroom
Personal Response: Create a YouTube video or large-size poster using images from around the world (or from your KIVA entrepreneur's country). To create a stronger link, try to use some of the elements found in the SUM41 video (e.g. a peace sign or a quotation that promotes peace).
 
High school teachers: SUM41 has another excellent YouTube video on Child soldiers in the Congo.

Benin Education Fund (pdurana)  Length: 4:27



Activist Alphonse Kougaou established an organization to help more Benin teenagers get an education. Combination of English narration and French interviews (Eng.subtitles) shows challenges they face in going to school and finishes with a discussion of their ambitions in life. Wonderful Benin music in the background.


Entreprenurial loans and education
KIVA loans often provide an indirect education benefit by raising a family’s standard of living so that children can attend school. An example of this is Marie-Madeleine de Souza, whose restaurant income allows her to keep her children in school in Cotonou, Benin.

She has good ethical values, a passion for her business and is anxious for her children's education. She is requesting a loan to develop her business and to meet the ever increasing demand of her customers who appreciate the quality of her meals.

The Struggle of Refugees (GlobalNomadsGroup)  Length: 3:37

Clear & succint!  With visuals + mock refugee camp.
Provides clear explanation of challenges faced by refugees.


How KIVA helps refugees
Refugees who have survived war and dislocation frequently need a hand-up to rebuild their lives.
Many KIVA entrepreneurs are (or have been) refugees. Here's a few examples:

Name: Eugenia Balegele
Location: Tanzania
Notes: Eugenia Balegele brings a touch of the Congo to Tanzania. In 2006, she established a business selling dresses made in the styles traditional to the former Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). Eugenia is from the Muha tribe, which comes from the Kigoma region in the far west of Tanzania, on the border of Congo. It is this connection with Congo and its influence on her homeland that inspired and enabled Eugenia to establish her business here in Dar es Salaam. Also, the many refugees from the DRC who live here due to the civil war in their homeland are happy to have found a neighbour selling their traditional dress.

Name: Morris Okello
Location: Uganda
Notes: Morris started working with Charity for Peace in 2003. He is originally from one of the villages in the Amuru district called Anaka. The 1986 war made them seek refuge in Karuma in one of the refugees camps . . . . . Morris started working at World Food Programme for 6 months, then he was with Caritas Gulu for a further 6 months. When his contract ended, he came back with the money raised and established a small barber shop together with a water tap. In this way, he has earned a living to supplement occasional short-term contracts with humanitarian organizations in Gulu. Throughout this time he also volunteered in the evenings, taking care of night commuter children at Charity for Peace Foundation. In August 2006, he joined Life in Africa where he is currently working.as a gallery salesman and store manager.

Name: Ajmal Abdul Hakeem
Location: Afghanistan
Notes: Ajmal, son of Abdul Hakeem, is 23 and has three children. Ajmal and his family returned to Afghanistan in 2002 from 18 years of living in refugee camps in neighboring Pakistan. Ajmal and his extended family live in Jalalabad city of the eastern Ningarhar province.
 td]

Name: Marcelino Valerio Tuvanji
Location: Mozambique
Notes: Marcelino Valerio Tuvanji is married and the father of 5 children with ages of 30, 25, 23, 17, and 13. The youngest 3 go to school. Besides his children Marcelino supports both a grandson and a nephew who also live with them in their home. He went to school until the 4th grade and did not continue because of the national liberation war. In 1967 he left Mozambique and went to Tanzania to take refuge from the war. In 1972 he returned to Mozambique to the center of the country as a combatant in the national liberation. In 1979 he was discharged and came to live in the province of Maputo with his family. Marcelino is a permanent employee in the Military hospital in the city of Maputo.



Name: Mohamad Marah
Location: Sierra Leone
Notes:
Mohamed Marah is 26 years and had no opportunity for formal education. During the civil war in Sierra Leone, Marah was a refugee in Guinea where he learned tailoring. When he returned from Guinea, Marah settled in a village with his family and life was not easy for him. He then came to Kabala and began to sew clothes for people using a friend’s sewing machine. Marah joined SMT and with his first loans purchased two sewing machines and rented another two. He asked four other young men to assist him in his sewing business. Marah’s business has continued to progress and he would like to expand it. With a new loan he plans to buy a embroidery machine and specialized thread. Marah has made himself responsible for his young sisters' and brothers’ education expenses, and his business has managed to provide continuing employment for the four other young men.
