OMG… KAD is in the DREAM TEAM!


After months of intense training and assignments, KAD has been selected to be in the Dream Team to the FIFA World Cup, South Africa 2010.


Read letter below:


Dear Kofi,


The moment of truth has arrived. After several weeks of patience, we are proud to present the names of those participants who will make it into the Dream Team to the World Cup in South Africa. Congratulations!


You are among the 18 All Stars being chosen by our Twenty Ten Virtual Editorial Team: Chief Editor Greg Marinovich (photographer) is supported by Stefan Verwer (Lokaalmondiaal) and Dominique Le Roux (Africa Media Online).


Your tutors from the training nominated a maximum of 6 English or 4 French All Stars that had participated in the workshop. The selection committee chose from those nominated by the tutors on the bases of quality, participation and cooperation. The uploaded assignments A/B/C were the work that was judged, the progress reports of the tutors the guideline for who to choose


Together with 17 other journalists (photo, print and radio) you will travel to South Africa during the tournaments. Divided into three different groups, duration of each stay will differ from two- up to four weeks. The exact dispatch of the groups will be decided soon, after reception of the signed and returned reply sheet attached to this email.


Please keep in mind that being a member of the Dream Team means some weeks of hard work during the World Cup. We will not live in 5*-hotels, some of us will go on a road trip in campers through the country and nightshifts will be no exception. We all see it as a great adventure full of new challenges. Twenty Ten wants to tell African stories to the world and you will be (together with the All Stars) the storytellers of this historical moment.


We are looking forward to hearing from you very soon.


Kind regards,


Jens Kiesheyer

OUR FUTURE, OUR HOPE

See the clouds, too weak to speak!
Without whom our earth’s laughter ceases
Yet we strike unkindly with unfriendly kisses
Knowing there is the abode of our hope of joy

See the waters, too angry to produce!
Without whom our land’s worth die
Yet we offer steady greetings of chemical concoctions
Knowing well it is an abomination to our living

See the forests, too gray to be green!
Without whom our native pastures are cursed
Yet we embrace it with utter disrespect
Knowing it is our source of pride and survival

Look everywhere, nature laments continually
Her sacred pride profaned by mass nurtured cruelty
Time to stop talking; time to start walking
Enough about international integration

Let’s attend to persisting promises
Let’s attend to neglected needs
It is time to proclaim attainable aims
Aims based on environmental ethics

For how long will we secure survival?
Yesterday renewable resources
Today global climatic change
Tomorrow tactics of harmful help
Never is there sound solution
And incessantly we do pay prices
Prices of no reasonable results
If only we could act…
If only!
