Children sleeping in the rubble

In Gaza children are living in the rubble of last year’s war, paying the price for a conflict they had no part in. But this week our community has a real chance to help these kids get the homes, schools and health clinics they need. Let’s join together to demand Israel end its life-crushing blockade on Gaza’s families. Add your voice now and we’ll join forces with top aid agencies to demand materials get in:

Sign Now
Dear friends,A year after the devastating war on Gaza, thousands of children are still sleeping in the rubble of their homes.

Even though it is a clear violation of international law, Israel’s blockade has restricted basic building materials going in. But no child should be made to live in the ruins of their home, study with bomb blasts through their classrooms, or not get basic health care because clinics have been destroyed.

We have a plan to change this — Avaaz has joined forces with top aid agencies working in Gaza to launch an emergency campaign to call on key donors to get the materials in. As the main governments paying to rebuild Gaza, they can insist Israel lifts the restrictions.

If we create a worldwide outcry too loud to ignore, we can push our governments to move beyond words, and ramp up diplomacy to end the blockade. Sign the petition — it’s time to show our leaders inaction on this humanitarian crisis is unacceptable:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/gaza_blockade_loc/?bSPCVgb&v=63790

Just 5 percent of the 6,700,000 tonnes of steel bars, cement and aggregates needed to rebuild what was destroyed since the end of the war has been permitted to enter Gaza. At this rate, it could take 17 years before Gaza is rebuilt.

While Palestinian political parties have failed to prioritise reconstruction, and Egypt’s closure of its border has limited supplies entering Gaza, by far the biggest obstacle to reconstruction is Israel’s blockade. Israel claims the restrictions are for security, but the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross have told Israel imposing this blockade on Gaza is a violation of international law.

The blockade has been ongoing for 8 years, and it has only led to three tragic wars full of bloodshed and destruction. History has taught us that taking away a whole people’s sense of safety and security only creates more suffering and pain for all sides. This blockade is about zero sum politics – making innocent people suffer to achieve political ends instead of seeking a solution that truly makes all sides better off.

Key governments have spoken out already and committed $3.5 billion to rebuild Gaza. But the best way to get them to take a stronger position, that actually shifts the status quo, is if they hear that their constituents care. That is where our community comes in. Let’s tell all our leaders that we want action now.

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/gaza_blockade_loc/?bSPCVgb&v=63790

For years our global community has taken action together with Avaazers in Palestine and Israel calling for an end to the repression and violence, and urging the world to act for justice, freedom and peace. Last year’s indiscriminate attacks killed almost 500 innocent children, a year later traumatised children are still desperate for our help. Let’s echo their cries and help ensure their homes are rebuilt.With hope and determination,

Fadi, Alice, Melanie, Wissam, Emily, Falastine, Ricken and the rest of the Avaaz team

QUESTION 1: What importance should child poverty be given in the post-2015 development goals?

Discussion by soshea@unicef.org

SDGs, EE and India, 5 Year Plan… Children

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As the SDG process makes ready for the report to the GA in the Fall, India is a rapidly growing economy with a five year plan to address some of their many challenges.  Here is an article that provides a good overview pointing out all for the first time, this generation of children know environmental education.  However green they may be but this article raises the question about using children to not only sell the green agenda but sell products for the private sector.  What is missing in the SDG overviews + mandates regarding EE and preparing society?

This February, Ranti Ogunleye, Global Kids Youth Development Specialist and GK alumnus, received the Partnership for After School Education PASEsetter award.  He was one of five recipients. The benefit and awards ceremony took place at Cipriani’s on 42nd Street and was called the “Academy Awards for after school education.”
During his acceptance speech, Ranti said, to great applause, “My life is better than your favorite movie because I get to work with beautiful people who care about our most precious resource, our youth.”
Ranti has made lasting connections with Global Kids youth, whether it’s been through his workshops on the importance of education, sharing his experiences from his travels across the world, or engaging in an impromptu rap battle with a student.
According to GK Leader, Kazi Ateea, “Ranti is someone I always look forward to seeing.  He is someone I can talk to about anything.”
