Sake activity with young disaster victims and young sake residents on social cohesion, peace and mutual aid.

This Saturday, June 5, 2021, we went to sake in the site where displaced people from Goma are staying who fled the eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano which terrorized the city of Goma a few weeks ago. In view of the humanitarian need for social cohesion and peace between the displaced and the sake residents, we brought together some young sake and those displaced around an awareness on social cohesion and mutual aid during this difficult period. This activity allowed these young people to make an outline on the anti discriminatory values which characterized them during this period and became aware of developing much more cohesive attitudes.
For the entire message.
THEME: AWARENESS OF YOUNG DISASTERS AND THOSE OF SAKE ON SOCIAL COHESION AND COMMUNITY KNOW-HOW
DATE: SATURDAY JUNE 5, 2021
TIME: 10:30 AM TO 12:30 PM
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 44 YOUNG PEOPLE including 20 FROM SAKE and 24 CLAIMS IN SAKE
1. OBJECTIVE OF THE ACTIVITY
During this post-volcanic eruption period, the Dynamique des Jeunes Artisans de la Paix knew how to consider the relevance of organizing an activity in Saké in order to educate young people there on how they should live during this short period of time. time they have left in Sake because conflicts arise wherever more than two people come together from different localities, or different backgrounds. Thus our goal has been to prevent these conflicts and to establish mechanisms to eradicate these conflicts. To do this, we called on each and every one of these sensitized young people to adopt a suitable, exemplary and dignified behavior during this time.
2. BACKGROUND
This activity was organized in Saké because it is currently an environment plagued by community conflicts because there are men, women and children coming from almost everywhere in the province of North Kivu, which province has been the victim of a volcanic eruption of May 22, 2021.
3. SOURCES OF COMMUNITY CONFLICTS
As part of this activity, we have identified certain factors that can be sources of conflicts during this period that the population living in Sake is going through; among these factors, those identified are among others: social disunity, selfishness, inequalities between ethnic groups or tribes, lack of acceptance of others, prejudices of one another, lack of communication or disinformation, giving a lot of attention to a category of people belonging to the same community which can lead to tribalism.
4. MECHANISMS TO BE ADOPTED IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THESE CONFLICTS
Since the population of Sake faces a recurring demographic problem, we have invited the young people to adopt certain peaceful strategies to better cope with the problems encountered. Among these strategies we have called on young people to mutual aid while considering the privilege of senior men, pregnant women and children. We have illustrated this with an example according to which, for example, we can bring porridge in which the quantity is insufficient and could not satisfy everyone. We know that you young people are strong and you can fight just to get served first when among you there are old men, women and children who do not have your vigor and resistance to hunger. In such a situation, the peaceful course of action would be to let those considered weak first to help themselves first, then it will be your turn. There you have shown maturity and leadership. Another example, the government promises that it will make available the means for you to return to your various respective communities, it is sure that there will be buses; you young people cannot get on these buses pushing the old people, women and children while you have the strength to walk home or wait for these people to settle down first. . It is the meaning of a peaceful responsibility and an irreversible love towards one's neighbor. The love towards his neighbor wants that, someone can come to visit you during this period and leave you 5 loaves of bread; you will say to yourself that this is my food for 5 days when there is someone next to you who is on the verge of fainting for not having eaten anything since the morning; that is not the behavior of a leader, of someone who wants to change his community knowing that it is we young people who are called to change, to transformation. This love for your neighbor to which we invite you must reflect your sense of mutual sharing.
In order for us to know how to live with others during this time, we must cultivate within ourselves the spirit of oneness. In order to illustrate this, we noticed just arriving the way the men behaved not wanting to put themselves in the same place with the women; we in DYJAP stigmatize this because we advocate gender equality, sex equality hence equality between men and women. The unexpected disaster that has occurred in Goma must bring us closer and not divide us because what unites us is not just the blood tie but the fact of being part of the same homeland makes us brothers and sisters. And when you're brothers, you don't have to fight over origin or provenance, over sex, race, and all the stereotypes relating to it; because these are negative practices against which we must fight with all our strength because they lead us directly to tribalism; however, as young peacemakers, we are not inclined to engender tribal conflicts in our communities since they do not benefit us. What should characterize us from now on is unity, that is to say the community know-how which is a corollary of social cohesion. And social cohesion wants us to be able to live in harmony with anyone of any tribe, community, of any gender, with the aim of meaning peace wherever we are.
5. CONCLUSIOIN
At the end of the activity, some young people from Saké took the floor to offer us their cordial thanks for the act of love that we show them in these specific terms:
Jean de Dieu (young disaster victim in Saké): we thank you for coming, it is an act of love and responsibility. Thank you for your message rich in advice on knowing how to live during this painful period that we are going through here; and pray that your organization is not limited only to Goma, that you can flourish even here in Sake.
Valentin (young disaster victim in Saké): while thanking you, I would have a proposal; sometimes we wander too much in the neighborhood because we lack to do; something can be stolen from the neighborhood and people will say it's us because we are devastated here and without family. If you can help us by finding a small occupation for us to avoid wandering around aimlessly and also to avoid problems.
Ambri (young from Saké): your actions and what you do are really of capital importance and beneficial to all young people, here in Saké such activities are really rare; if you can settle here, if necessary even set up an office of your organization here, that will allow us to benefit daily from your activities which we deem important to us.
