Learning from one another
Training of Trainers (T.O.T) Workshop on Ethics Education through Interfaith Learning organized by GNRC in New Delhi, India, 2007
Before joining Music Mayday Tanzania I worked with Global Network of Religion for Children(GNRC-Africa), an organization working for the wellbeing of children. In April, 2007 I was able to participate for 5 days in the Training of Trainers (T.O.T) Workshop on Ethics Education through Interfaith Learning organized by GNRC in New Delhi-India.One day we had an evening of culture, whereby young people from fourteen regions were exchanging their cultures and learn from one another. From that night I learnt they are some people so attached to their culture like Indians and Arabia, which includes food, dressing and language. They are proud of their kind of food, the way they dress since they are young and their language. Unlike to some African, which seem to abandon our beautiful culture and try to embraces those culture from the west countries. I learnt to be natural, simple and African I do like my African status especially being Tanzanian.
In 2009 I was in Uganda for Youth Peace Planning training, therefore we had a day for cultural activity. I was impressed by the culture of Luganda people by the way of their dressing especially for women who use to wear long gown decorated with a wide ribbon at the womb. They real look nice and present their culture effectively but also I liked their kind of food especially grind banana it is so delicious.
Talking of language it is good thing to have your own language as identity of culture but sometimes it has negative effect especially in uniting the nation for development. For example in Uganda they speak different seventh language which, means the language of the town is not the same of the rural area.Tanzania is lucky to have single national language which is spoken by one hundred and twenty tribes which Tanzania has. Tanzania has twenty-seven regions but still people can communicate by one language for the development of the country, stability and good socialization.
