Support ADRA Norway’s Ingathering 2016

I’d like to strike a blow for this year’s ADRA Norway ingathering. I truly believe that education makes releasing lives from poverty, injustice, prejudice and even war possible. Furthermore, education is the foundation on which the development of health services, agraculture, business and infrastructure are built. According to ADRA Norway, most children in Ethiopia attend school at an early age, but they leave way too early, often because their help is needed at home. However, no-one can take your education away from you. It has a bearing on families and local communities.  This is exactly what the 2016 project is all about. “Educating for the future: a human right for all,” is the slogan printed on the flyers and the webpage. Ethiopia is the main focus of the 2016 Ingathering.

Torderød school, the Moss and Fredrikstad Church school, is taking part in the annual ingathering for three days, 13. – 15. September,  when they basically collect money door-to-door equipped with permits, badges and special collection tins.

So, I’m in an advertising campaign for my school

Torderød skole is presently running an advertising campaign to increase pupil enrollment up to 80. So I was the photographer’s pick as a model, and as you may notice from the text ad (in English: being a good teacher), I can feel the pressure building. At the same time, I’m enjoying a bit of attention around my profession, which is needed in Norway.

The advert was a full page feature in both of the local newspapers in the Moss-area, but I have yet to experience being recognised in the shops, hehe, so I suppose this way of public exposure will, hopefully, serve its purpose. Read more
