Organization: African Education Network (AEN) is a cross-continental network to advocate multi-facet development in Africa via education.  Witnessing the lack of effective communication between African CBOs and the global youth who are eager to engage themselves in Africa, AEN seizes the opportunity to bridge communication gaps via education. It engages  the young people in Africa and around the world, facilitating the communication between the two sides to foster mutual trust and in-depth cooperation. Believing that education is an essential means to achieve mutual understanding and improve the communication out of a kaleidoscope of social purposes, AEN is expected to deliver its work through an educational approach that consists of three core components: intercultural training, organizational learning, and newsletter distribution.

"The challenge of education and communication in Palestine"

How the Embassy of Palestine in Italy is trying to face with occupation problem and society issues

Carolina Zincone works at the Embassy of Palestine in Italy as a responsible of media and communication. In this role she aims to raise awareness on what’s going on in Palestine. In fact she said that: It is crucial to know”. Her first aim is to spread knowledge on the situation in Palestine. The difficult they find in communication is the unfair game of other ambassadors; very often when it is an initiative organised by an NGO, for example Gaza and West Bank, the communication of the other states is strong and direct. She thinks instead that it is important to let people know what’s going on and not to forbid other people initiatives. She said: “The problem is that you try to communicate but then there is a sort of censorship of what you do”.

She talks in particular about education and what problems students have to face with everyday such as army aggression, school demolition and several unjustified attacks, but the main problem is the occupation that causes students difficulties not only in their studies but also in their lives because they lost their parents and friends , who were killed by occupants.

What the Embassy does, is not simply talking about people that have been killed or people that have been arrested, they want to say that the Palestinian people have many things that could be considered, they have a lot to say and to show and this occupation is an obstacle to this , and they shouldn’t be considered only as victims.

 About her work, Carolina Zincone was firstly a volunteer of UN , she said volunteering is a great experience , very interesting , they try to listen to your wishes, try to send you to place that you’re interested in and ask you to do things that you are suitable for. It is really interesting because you are in touch with local population we learn many things and I suggest to anyone interested in the work of international organisations should try to have this experience.

So it is important to know and be aware of what it is going on, in order to find out solutions and to give help. It is important to get information about conflicts around the world and to try to solve them with the aim of respect human rights and dignity.
