A radio show about and for Moldovans from all the places in the world

Reporter. Dear listeners, good evening and welcome on the frequencies of our national radio station. Here is a new show for our people who left abroad… The calendar of the events reminds us that on 10 November, tomorrow, we will celebrate International Youth Day… We want to say also that this event is carrying out as much as possible our achievements and problems that the young people deals with, especially the ones in direct contact with foreign world.
With this occasion I have invited in our studio one of the most active supporters and promoters of our nation, abroad. Dear listeners, I salute Mrs. Renata Verejanu: hello, dear lady. I have invited you in this show and because you’re also leading a prestigious organization – it’s the Little Prince Magazine. Please correct me if I’m not right…
R.V. I am the founder of over 40 NGOs of local, national and international level – a very spiritual and beautiful creation, one of its kind with general headquarters in Moldova, and one of the first international NGOs with general headquarters in former Soviet Union, first even in Eastern Europe: the World Organization of Talented Children (OMCT).

Rep. Very nice… A nice symbol, very important for Republic of Moldova, for us who want to be in Europe. Let’s talk about this connection with European area. Our values… of they are similar with the European ones… Do they match theirs?
R.V. I would like to say, for beginning, what Europe represents for me. I believe that every person or society has as its primary objective of creating its prestige. The prestige of a nation, of your country… And this prestige gets bigger every day, even if it is created by a simple man or personality, a person with a healthy spirit will try to create its prestige. And I tryied all my life to create my prestige…

Rep. How? Teach us…
R.V. I never stepped down from barricades. I always was present on the barricades of spiritual renaissance…

Rep. …You fight…
R.V.(…people that can’t divide something are fighting each other). Only due to spiritual renaissance; and this desire of create my prestige has held me on these barricades, no matter who comes to power, who leaves the power… No matter if outside rains or snows… Feeling like I owe to create this prestige and I have launched many projects of all levels… And I have tryied to get my prestige, the prestige of my community, outside my community… Somebody makes traffic with fruits over border, other – a good wine, somebody – I don’t even want to talk bad things, only good things. I became, without wanting, a PR advisor to Republic of Moldova abroad.

Rep. You are like an ambassador of Moldova in the world.
R.V. … In this blogs network (I have created over 30 blogs), somebody has asked me what’s my profession. I named only a few: journalist, ecomonist, director, writer… And the journalist-blogger said: I think you are the advisor that creates the image of Moldova in the world…

Rep. A very responsible mission, otherwise.
R.V. I want to come back to over 40 NGOs. I have founded this network with some children. It all started from a joke. I know that I am full of ideas… I have started to create civil society in Moldova, which lacked. Or, a country is considered democratic if has a healthy civil society. Starting with ”Micul Prinț” Magazine, that you mentioned of, a first magazine for children, the most important is that all I have created, it was for the first time in our country.

Rep. Like a first try…
R.V. Yes, like a premiere not ony for Moldova, but for entire Europe… A magazine for children, founded by children, I managed relations with publishing house, finances, but the conception was very interesting… It was a first independent magazine for children, created by children, for children, a magazine with a NGO status, the first, first… and a magazine with editorial staff composed of children from different countries… This idea inspired some Scandinavian countries, later UNESCO, who started to promote some school newspapers, and we felt very satisfied knowing that all started from our beautiful idea… In the meantime, we have started to search in all villages of Moldova for talented children for our editorial staff. Every weekend we travelled with national TV… to discover talented children…

Rep. You have worked many years here at national television…
R.V. I haven’t worked, I only collaborated with national television, for free. I had this show ”Little Prince…”. While other people rest in weekends, I gave my weekends to this projects and discovered children… in order to create a world of talented children, a talented children movement… The Little Prince movement… In hthis way, the Festival Contest ”Little Prince” became an independent project. Until 1995 it was a nationwide project, since 1996 it became international. I have invited 6 countries to come to Chisinau and they all responded and participated at our contest.

Rep. Mrs. Renata Verejanu please tell us how many little princes from all Moldova were seen and heard, over the borders…
R.V. If counting local, national and international stages of the Contest… there are over 55,000 young talents from all the continents who participated at this project… at this dialogue between cultures and people that we implement for 15 years already… I am very glad that this year edition of the International Festival-Contest of the World Talents ”Little Prince” took place under the patronage of President of Parliament, Mr. M.Lupu and of Secretary General of Council of Europe, Mr.Terry Davis. The Council of Europe accepted to take another edition of our festival in 2002. After us other agencies were created, other press firms… But we were the first media school for students. And in the moment when we decided to create, on the basis of these projects, an entire organization with such beautiful name – World Organization of Talented Children, we made requests to Council of Europe in order to obtain status with such European forum, as we had to have branches in several countries… One thing is when in our country comes a UN fund, for example, with its millions of dollars, all government officials start to help them quickly to open a representative in our country, and another thing is when we come from Moldova, a country that nobody has heard of, and we try to open branches abroad…

Rep. And you come without millions of dollars…
R.V. … Yes, we come with no money… A French once told me: you are the first Moldovan I met, through you I found out of the existence of such a country, Moldova. You smile?… You come from the former Soviet Union and you still smile? I know that all the people from that area are very serious.

Cine sustine ONG-urile de copii

Classé dans : OING — wotc @ 16:40

competition1.jpg Procesul educaţional în R.Moldova a fost lăsat

câteva decenii
pe spinarea firavă a Societaţii Civile,
mai clar spus – pe umerii copiilor şi tinerilor care-şi iubesc ţara,
umeri firavi de voluntari din diferite ONG-uri,
unii mai norocoşi – căci au putut răzbi la careva finanţatori,
alţii mai şireţi – devenind un ONG de buzunar,
şi în cele din urmă – cîte un ONG de o altă ţinută,
poate că neadmisă întro perioadă de tranziţie,
şi, din acest motiv, cu foarte mari greutăţi,
dar cu succese de durată…

ONG-urile din Reţeaua OMCT
sunt unice din mai multe considerente:
- sunt ONG-uri libere şi independente,
- nu sunt filialele cuiva, ele au creat filiale şi reprezentanţe în ţară, îm lume,
- sunt ONG-uri unde se munceşte doar pe muncă de voluntariat,
  dar ce munceşte foarte calitativ, foarte mult, şi din toată inima,
- sunt ONG-uri care nu au stat cu mâna întinsă ca cineva din vest sau est
să le pună în farfurie o idee, un proiect, un grant…
- sunt ONG-uri care au lansat zi de zi noi şi noi proiecte educaţionale,
noi şi noi structuri până au umplut timpul (anii, deceniul…)

cu un număr impunător de evenimente originale,
- sunt ONG-uri de copii pentru copii, gestionate de copii,
care, când aceşti copii au crescut, au creat ONG-uri
de tineret pentru tineret, gestionate de tineret,
- sunt ONG-uri care colaborează foarte strâns între ele,
astfel devenind o reţea bine consolidată şi,
din acest motiv,

coordonată de evenimentele de prestigiu

pe care copiii le oferă societăţii -
şi nu de o putere sau alta…
- sunt ONG-uri care de la primul proiect au fost acceptate:
şi la nivel local, şi naţional, şi regional, şi internaţional…
- sunt ONG-uri care prin proiectele sale
au educat demnitatea de om,

respectul faţă de om,
şi dorinţa de a fi om.

Meditaţia unui voluntar
