Wecome to unodays project blog

Thank you for your interest in unodays project.

United Nations organisation (UNO) deserves our accolade for being a platform for nations to discuss and find solutions to the world’s diverse problems. We reasoned that had it mean that such a platform does not exist the world would have been in utter disarray.

Unfortunately, there are countless people and communities in the world that know next to nothing about the importance of UNO. Unodays project is just out to raise awareness on the roles of UN among people and local communities around the world that know little or nothing about UNO. We hope to achieve this through our volunteers’ press cuttings, clips of video and audio news etc. obtained from various local communities’ media germane to the various objectives of UN days which would be posted here and during any of the days UNO commemorates we shall present a summary of news reports that volunteers have posted in our blog (later website) thereby raising awareness about what UNO has done and been doing.

We hope to achieve this by organising seminars, workshop, and conferences whichever we found appropriate through face to face or online meetings. Our target audiences are local community people, pupils and students of schools and Universities. During this time we hope to give support (e.g. scholarships) to University students, pupils of schools and victim of e.g. domestic violence in a locality on the day we are joining UNO to commemorate.

A number of opportunities are available for those who want to work with us. See below some of them and you could write through the address below for additional roles.

September 11 is here again

September eleven 2001 was a black day in American history and indeed the whole world when over three thousand people died due to the callousness of a group named al-Qaeda. Today we commiserate with the families of people that lost their love ones. I am however baffled by the number of years it took American nation to track down the ring leader of the twin tower disaster. I ask myself that indeed the only one almighty is God who cannot be beaten. It shocked the whole world that this could happen in America who was tag the policeman of the world. More so that it took America a decade to get the hench man down.
