Interview

Ambassadors A‐

 R‐
Hello
and
welcome!
We
are
about
to
meet
one
of
the
 United
 





Nations’
ambassadors. R‐
Hello
Mr.
Ambassador. A‐
Hello R‐
Why
did
you
think
that
sharing
responsibility
for
making
 the
 





world
a
better
place
was
important? A‐
Well,
making
the
world
a
better
place
is
crucial
and
the
 only
 





way

 





we
can
accomplish
it
is
to
work
together.
I
feel
that
the
 things
that
are
happening
today
shouldn’t
have
to
be.
 





It’s
everyone’s
fault
and
it’s
not
you
or
I
alone
who
can
 make

 





a
difference,
it’s
everyone!
Everyone
should
help
out

 





because
it’s
 





our
responsibility.
 R‐
I
see,
so
you’re
saying
that
if
everyone
would
work
 together
 




we
would
achieve
this
goal?

A‐Yes,
but
it
will
take
years.
It
is
a
big
problem
but
by
2015
we
 



are
hoping
it
will
come
to
a
stage
that
is
sustainable.
 R‐
Thank
you,
Mr.
Ambassador
and
thank
you
all
for
listening.
 Good‐
bye.



Marlai’s Luck Once in a small village in Zimbabwe, Africa, there lived a family. A mother Marlaia, a girl Lanka and a grandpa Bambai. Marlaia had long black hair She was neither tall nor short; she was medium- dized. She had dark skin and black eyes. She ‘spoke’ Shona and was very talkative. Her daughter Lanka on the other hand was shy even with her mother. Bambai didn’t speak that much, he was a man of actions. One day when Marlaia was at the end of her pregnancy, Larka and Marlaia decided it would take them two days so they better start walking to the hospital now. Bambai waved his stick and they were off. Everything was going fine until Marlai started feeling dizzy and fell down and couldn’t stand up. Lanka ran around crying for help but everyone was too weak from hunger. Lanka, worried about her mother and walked around the whole village trying to get help. Then she spotted a Mobile Clinic. She shouted, “Come quickly, my mom needs help!” The mobile truck came roaring and took her and her mother to the hospital. Then they found out that the medication cost money. “Well we don’t have that much!” Lanka cried “We’ll pay you back in two weeks but right now help my mother” “O.K two weeks” the doctor said. Marlai and Lanka returned home with a new baby boy. Bambai held it gently because it was asleep. The next day they found an envelope addressed to them. Marlai tore open the envelope happy to take a rest from her work. Since she couldn’t read, she took it to the local teacher who read it out loud. It said, Dear Marlai, We are happy to announce that we have saved money for your treatment .Please keep the extra money for food. Mr. William “I’m astonished! Can this be true?” Than Bambai said “What’s the baby’s name?” “Bambai Williams Rona.”

My Dream As many of us know, education is expensive. Many kids, just like, me are held back from learning. As much as my parents try to earn enough money, they barely have enough for food. My passion for learning is very strong. As I watch the kids in my village who are able to attend school I wish I could be one of them! Oh, how I wish I could be one of them. Oh, how I wish I could wear that uniform and write on a slate! In my heart I believe one day each and every child will be able to attend school. When the word first got around that the United Nations had made my dream one of their goals, I felt there still was a chance that my dream will come true. When I get older, I will help fight this problem so my children and grandchildren won’t have to look on as other kids go to school. They will be able to go themselves.
