Oshituthi shomagongo, marula fruit festival in #Namibia

The Oshituthi shomagongo, marula fruit festival, runs for 2 to 3 days between March and April when eight Aawambo communities from northern Namibia meet to enjoy ''omagongo'' – a beverage made from the fruit.

To prepare, men carve utensils and serving tools and the women make basketsa and pots. They gather the fruit with young people, to process and ferment its juice. Traditional songs are sung, poems recited and lives discussed. The festival unites generations and communities.

This is one of twenty new elements recently inscribed by #UNESCO to the list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf bids farewell to the Indian all-female police unit at the #UnitedNations Mission in #Liberia.

The first all-female police unit in the history of #UN peacekeeping has served in Liberia since 2007 and are now departing as the country gets ready to assume full responsibility for national security. “The contribution you have made in inspiring Liberian women, imparting in them the spirit of professionalism and encouraging them to join operations that protect the nation; for that we will always be grateful. Our security service now has 17 per cent women - we owe all that to you, because it was not even one per cent a few years ago,” President Sirleaf told the peacekeepers.

"I was 6-years-old when I was cut. For me, the most traumatic experience was seeing what my older sister went through. She wasn't as lucky as me. She suffered terrible injuries and almost died. The scars will remain with us for life."

Assétou Touré from Mali, now 49, works to educate others and fight the practice of female genital mutilation.

In the new UN Women series ‪#‎FromWhereIStand‬, she tells her story and reminds us all that “we have a duty to act, to ensure every girl is able to live a dignified and fulfilled life.”

+Who Cares? Sometimes more. There are several different types of mutilation. All cultural and linked to several different religions. In many countries. Its a disgrace and we all need to learn about it so we can join in stopping it. Education and information are important.

Preserving ancient manuscripts in Mali: During the occupation of Timbuktu in 2012, a local NGO evacuated 377,491 manuscripts to Bamako to protect them from possible looting, destruction, or poor storage conditions.

As part of efforts to rehabilitate damaged cultural heritage in northern Mali, the Government, +UNESCO and Mission des Nations Unies au Mali - MINUSMA have provided logistical support to these conservationists.

See striking images of their work here: http://ow.ly/Y4JHm

Un numéro est aussi attribué pour chaque manuscrit.

#YearInReview: A profile of Ruby Bridges, civil rights activist, during the June exhibit opening of "We the Peoples: Norman Rockwell's United Nations" on display at #UnitedNations Headquarters in #NYC in celebration of the UN's 70th anniversary this year.

Behind her is the iconic 1964 painting "The Problem We All Live With" by legendary American illustrator Norman Rockwell, in which 6-year-old Ruby is featured on her way to school in New Orleans, USA, during desegregation.
The incredible exhibition of UN-inspired artwork featured 33 original artworks, including "United Nations" -- a massive, complex charcoal drawing made in 1953 that portrays members of the Security Council and 65 people representing the nations of the world.

Very,very,very interesting.^

The 5 Ks! Nice try. Not falling for this ploy either.

2015-2016 Unbelievable in this day and time what is actually taking place.

English in the number one universal language.

Hint:
One of many things taking place that is very odd in this day and time.

1. What is taking 2 hours to 45 minutes that should only take 2 sec?

“For us survivors, it is so very important to share our experiences because we do not want others to suffer as we have. After 70 years we are still suffering, people living with and dying from consequences of the bomb. We need a peaceful life."

Yasuaki Yamashita, one of a dwindling number of atomic bomb survivors (hibakusha) from Nagasaki, shares in graphic detail the ordeal he underwent as a six-year-old during the bombing -- and why he has dedicated his life to the cause of peace and nuclear disarmament.

“Nuclear weapons are not necessary. War is not necessary. In war, no one wins, everyone loses. We hibakusha must continue to speak out for as long as we can.”
