1 MANI TESE Annual Report 2012 Mani Tese 2013

2 2012: The Food Sovereignty Year The profile of Mani Tese The figures of Mani Tese Raising awareness, starting up, lobbying. The World March for Food Sovereignty which ended on the 16th October 2012 has represented all of this and much more. The final event of the three-years project financed by the European Union has involved the whole association and has remarkably increased Mani Tese s visibility, making it a privileged interlocutor as to the right to food and to common goods, both in Italy and in Europe. From Food Security to Food Sovereignty, Citizens and local administrations towards a new model in Europe to reduce hunger all over the world : that is the title of a complex project whose purpose was to make public the concept of Food Sovereignty and to inform about the good practices of production and consumption of food already feasible. Mani Tese, in partnership with several Italian and European organizations, has organized events of strong impact on the territory, involving volunteers and citizens in 18 Italian cities and in 5 countries in Africa, and has brought consumers in the streets of the North and the South of the world. The show of music, theatre and cabaret When I eat, I feel like a king has transformed the cities in pure cultural centers where producers and consumers could think about the deep meaning of food and of the rights that cannot be renounced connected to it. During the march we have also brought in the petition Food Sovereignty in Europe, NOW!. Being sure that the change of our food system is a first step towards a bigger change in our society, we managed to achieve the goal we set of signatures that we brought to the European Parliament, as the throbbing heart of a Europe of peoples in which we believe, and that we firmly hope as a way to get out from the current civilization crisis. Mani Tese is a Non Government Organization founded in Italy in 1964 to contrast hunger and the imbalances between North and South of the world. Thanks to thousands of people that contribute with their own personal efforts and with concrete donations, Mani Tese coordinates projects of cooperation in 17 Countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, initiatives of awareness and involvement of the civil society, concrete experiences of sustainability and solidarity economics, voluntary work and education to become world citizens. Mani Tese is a NGO recognized by the Office Foreign Business on basis of the law n. 49/1987 since 1980 affiliated to B 220 of the register of the juridical people of the Prefecture in Milan since 1981 Association Recognized Moral Corporate Authority an Onlus on basis of the Legislative Decree n. 460/97 since 1997 is endowed with the advisory status of NGO for the ECOSOC (Economic Suggestion of the United Nations) since1997 a certified IID (Italian Institute of the Donation) since 2006 a certified SV ( Social Value) since 2011 Bangladesh Guinea Sudan Messico Bissau Myanmar Sud Sudan Guatemala Nicaragua India Cambogia Burkina Kenya Faso Benin Ecuador Brasile Bolivia Mozambico Indicative Proceeds Proceeds from Private 75% 74% 72% Proceeds from Public 25% 26% 28% Expenses Mission 85% 75% 77% Costs of Management 15% 25% 23% Local associations Cooperatives Local groups Countries Projects Sectors of intervention Active donors Costs of management 23% Source of Budget 2012 Destined funds to the mission 77% MANI TESE Annual Report

3 Inspiring values Advocacy 1. Justice and equity 2. Democracy 3. Consensus 4. Participation 5. Solidarity 6. Social equality 7. Freedom 8. Non-violence 9. Mutual respect 10. Sobriety 11. Lifestyles As already mentioned in the editorial, the highlight initiative of 2012 was the World March for Food Sovereignty. A part of it was the theatrical tour When I eat I feel like a king, which was followed by an audience of people none of them paid, of course! and which offered an extraordinary visibility on the media: national TG1, RaiNews24, Rai Radio 1 and Radio 2, La Repubblica, Il Corriere della Sera, to mention just a few. The show has represented the height of a series of events organized in Italy and in the South of the World. We started in June from Cacine, Guinea Bissau, and we arrived in September in Morrumbala, Mozambique, passing between July and August through the province of Boulkiemde, Burkina Faso, Atacorà, Benin, and Molo forest, Kenya. In Italy, thanks to the support of the local groups of Mani Tese, we brought the March in the schools and in 18 cities, creating 44 different occasions of meeting (from street parades to farmers markets, from outdoor games to workshops of applied solidarity economy) which involved thousands of people and strengthened partnerships and collaborations over the territories. A big exercise of bottom-up democracy the collection and delivery of signatures (75% from Europe and 25% from Africa) to sustain the petition Food Sovereignty in Europe, NOW! made it all perfect. The cultural and political commitment of Mani Tese in 2012 was not just about the assertion of food sovereignty, though. With regard to environmental justice, the workshop in India took place, involving 15 volunteers, the launch of the announcement UpsideDown, for the promotion of new practices with low environmental impact and high social value (100 projects submitted, 6 winners) and the participation to FAME 2012, the World Alternative Forum on Water, which took place in Marseille in March. A large and multicolored delegation of Mani Tese has also participated to the proceedings of the III International Conference on Degrowth, which took place in Venice in September. The year ended with the formal establishment of the Committee for the Peoples Expo. Mani Tese is one of the promoting partners with the goal to accomplish in 2015 in Milan a big assizes of the world civil society that, on the occasion of the Universal Exposition, is able to make the proposals of associations and of the citizens movements reach loud and clear the governments as to fight to poverty and to injustices. MANI TESE Annual Report

4 Education to World citizenship Stimulating an active process of teaching and learning which allows to read the variety and complexity of the problems of the world we live in, connecting a global view with a local one, making visible the connections between public problems and individual life-styles. Those are the fundamental goals of the Education to World Citizenship, a commitment that Mani Tese and CRES (Centre for Research, Education and Development) carry on since their establishment. To Mani Tese educating a world citizenship means to make the people protagonists of their growth process, so that they can be able to commit and to act as citizens and to start changes. That is why our educational action is addressed as much to the teachers as to the students, proposing learning courses based on strategic themes and issues, able to link disciplines to educations and promoting the integration of knowledge and of methodologies to build new knowledge. Imbalances between North and South of the world, poverty, rights and migrations but also food sovereignty, common goods and land-grabbing, because the big challenges on an international level are many and each and we all can and must have a role in changing the system we live in. Our numbers for the school year : we met 145 classes for a total of about students involved in courses and workshops about citizenship and rights; From resources to common goods, Africa Rush and The crisis words : 3 new didactic courses addressed to the students; 8 performances of Who eats alone chokes course of theatre-lessongame about the right to food for primary schools; 120 creative young kids involved in the contest Earth Auction. In November Mani Tese received the accreditation by the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) as agency for the training of school staff, another important acknowledgement of the work and the commitment we have been carrying on for more than twenty years. International cooperation The fateful date of 2015, when the results will have to be considered at the deadline of the Millennium Goals, is approaching. Since those goals were set by the UN, the world scenario, especially the economic one, has changed so much that the South of the world today risks to be a mere geographic notion. In the world initiatives to discuss the future of international cooperation and development aids, concepts that seem to be more and more under discussion, are multiplying. To rediscover today the sense of cooperation and solidarity we need to take into account this new scenario. The news is that we are no longer at the centre of the world and that we can no longer take our wealth for granted. That is how institutions and the public opinion start to realize that the time of the one-way solidarity and international aid is over. The uninterrupted flow from the eternal rich ones to the eternally poor ones makes sense no more if it doesn t turn in the concrete possibility of an equal exchange of relationships, values, experiences, capitals. It is time to definitively drop the classic image of poverty, the one that for many years the cooperation has contributed to consolidate, precisely because today two thirds of the poor people in the world live in middle income countries. In this new scenario, though, cooperation and solidarity among peoples won t become any less important. In a world where the management of common goods and of natural resources is becoming the key to sustainable development and where inequality and social injustice are increasingly becoming a threat to social stability, civil society organizations, precisely through international cooperation, are and will continue to be the moving spirits in the fight against poverty and marginalization. That is the course that Mani Tese has been undertaking for several years with local partners and communities in 17 countries; that is the meaning of the work carried on in 2012 as well and illustrated hereafter through the highlights of some significant projects.

The main activity has been the support to the supply chain of manioc and we worked on the improvement of the production through the introduction of improved varieties of the plant; the groups have been equipped with the necessary materials to turn it into Garì, a sort of polenta that is produced with a simple and easily manageable process which concludes with the toasting, and tapioca which is obtained from the rests of the transformation process of Garì. The women have been also formed to better market the finished product, which is in great demand in the local markets. The activities of evaluation carried out at the end of the project have recorded a clear positive impact on the beneficiary women both for what concerns their social role and for the improvement of the quality of life of their families. OUR PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE Project 2245 Guaranteeing food security in the municipality of Jocotan inside Corredor Seco Mani Tese, together with its partner Asociación Santiago de Jocotan, has started to carry out a project of food security in favour of 225 native families Chortì, in the East of Guatemala (District of Chiquimula). The area of intervention, known as the Corredor Seco because of the shortage of water resources, is one of the zones with the highest index of malnutrition of the country. The project goal is to guarantee the right to food through an improvement of the productive yield, the strengthening of the producers organizations and the training on nutritional education. Some of the activities which will be carried out will be: training courses in agro-ecology and creation of demonstrative market gardens; breeding of farmyard animals; accomplishment of a program of nutritional education; health care for minors.

By starting or strengthening organized groups of mutual help or of saving, and training courses for 130 leaders, the families involved in the process of community development are more than In a large number of communities child labour has been eradicated; the percentage of children between 5 and 14 years who attend schools is around 96%. About 800 children have benefited from a residential center and eleven day centers directly managed by the partner, while 200 teenagers have attended professional training courses. OUR PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE Project 2289 Burkina Faso Community Water This new program, started in Burkina Faso, aims to favor the mobilization of the communities in the country, especially those residing in the Province of Boulkiemde to guarantee the access to drinking water and to reduce waterborne diseases. A number of interventions, directed to bring out and make effective the public value (community water) of water, will be carried out, with responsibility and management shared among people from the community and representatives of the local institutions. In particular, we intend to act on the improvement of technical and managerial skills of those who are called to manage and keep the access points to drinking water and on the improvement in quantity, quality and distribution, with particular care to the weakest categories (schoolchildren, sick people, etc ). The project provides for a direct mobilization of the population, parents (especially mothers), children, students of primary schools, for a wider awareness of the importance of water with regard to hygiene and health and for the prevention of diseases. Women and children s rights Promotion of rural economies WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED Project 2204 Guinea Bissau Creation of a fishermen s cooperative in the area of Rio Cacine The project, which during 2012 began its conclusion, has involved about 900 fishermen of Rio Cacine on two aspects: the increase of quantity and of quality of catch through the improvement of fishing techniques thanks to the different training courses, the supplying of materials, motor dugouts, nets, ice to preserve fish and to fish several days on the open sea; the start of the cooperative with the task of managing the supply chain from fishing to preservation, transformation and selling; a lot has been done about the organizing aspects, especially for what concerns the fishermen going out to the sea, the preservation through the management of the ice factory, the transformation, made by women, of the smallest catch through the smoking and the salting for the local markets and the sale thanks to the contacts with retailers. OUR PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE Project 2230 Project of combined development of the communities Tripura, Marma e Mro, BANGLADESH Forced migrations, land grabbing and ethnic conflicts characterize the Chittagong Hill Tracts, a mountainous area in the East of the country, on the border with India and Burma/Union of Myanmar, inhabited by a number of ethnic minorities. Mani Tese, together with the local partners, has been committed for years in an action of strengthening of the civil society also through the support to primary education and to rural economies, combining in its own action also the protection of natural resources and community reforestation of certain areas. The land issue plays a key role in this area, as an instrument of resistance, employment, identity, sustenance, income. That is why, in the 4 districts involved, actions of acquisition and protection of the rights on the land, and of capacity building of the community leaders will be carried out while keeping on promoting the general life conditions of the local populations, especially in farming, health and environment.

7 Natural resources WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED Project 2272 Congress of the Landless in Ecuador for the Right to Feed Mani Tese, together with its partner FIAN-Ecuador (Food First Information and Action Network) has supported the organization of the Congress of the landless, sea-less, mangrove-less, waterless of the organizations of the Ecuadorian coast, which took place in November 2012, with the participation of over 500 people coming from different areas of the country. This event has been wanted by the organizations of the coast as a moment to exchange and share strategies, to discuss issues concerning the exploitation of the natural resources of the country. The defense of the territory and of the natural resources is strictly bound to the guarantee of food sovereignty and to the respect of the buen vivir, as provided for by the Ecuadorian constitution. The main themes discussed were: 1. Fight for the land; 2. Extracting and big infrastructural projects; 3. Agroindustry, food sovereignty and buen vivir. OUR PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE Project 2282 Land, water and healthy environment: a Civil Society initiative on the environmental rights in the State of Unity, South Sudan The project has just started in South Sudan, in the State of Unity, an area damaged both by the deterioration of the environment, caused by the extraction of oil, and by the pollution of the aquifers, with small access to drinking water. The projects aims to strengthen the rights of the citizens in the State for a fair use of natural resources and to improve the quality of the environment. A special attention will be given to women, being their rights often denied. The intervention, in cooperation with the local partner UCOET, aims on one hand to improve the knowledge and the awareness of the rights on natural resources land, water, environment as common goods from the civil society groups, and on the other hand to create networks among these groups, in order to strengthen the environmental and economic rights, with a special attention to gender approach. The voluntary work and the territorial action of Mani Tese Commitment and participation marked also in 2012 the voluntary work of Mani Tese. The Association has been on the front line in Finale Emilia through the local group of Mani Tese which, directly damaged by the ruinous earthquake of the 20th of May, immediately started an articulate project linked to the emergency and to overcoming of this difficult stage. ALL TOGETHER was the slogan that has moved a large number of volunteers all over Italy to support our group and the population of Finale Emilia; about one hundred volunteers who worked in a permanent three months camp to sustain activities aimed at the collection and distribution of staple commodities to the affected populations and to the support of children and teenagers in the complex process of overcoming the shock. In 2012, 6 voluntary camps have been organised: in Vicenza for the families, in Ontignano for teenagers, in Kenya in cooperation with the Sudan Campaign, in Bulciago, in Vicchio and in Verbania. About 30 of our volunteers were involved in the international workshop in India on the grabbing of natural resources, and in the voluntary camp in Kenya to thoroughly analyze food sovereignty. In autumn the entire Association has been mobilized for the World March for Food Sovereignty. The events carried out have been more than 40 all over the national territory: the March has seen the groups and the volunteers of Mani Tese taking the streets, participating to the tour of the theatrical show When I eat I feel like a king!, organizing widening meetings, undertaking demonstrations and flash mobs and promoting the collection of signatures for the petition Food Sovereignty in Europe, NOW!. At the end of the year we accomplished the sixth edition of the Campaign MUCH MORE THAN A GIFT PACKAGE. To wrap up the presents of the clients of the bookstores volunteers mobilized and Euros have been raised. This money has contributed to the program FROM STREETS TO SCHOOL! to sustain the training and the education of the street urchins in Brazil, Bangladesh, India and Cambodia. In six years, thanks to the participation of over volunteers, the Campaign has supported 20 partners of Mani Tese, associations and organizations of Bangladesh, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Benin, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Sudan, Mozambique, India, Cambodia for the accomplishment of 26 projects of international cooperation for a total amount of ,92 Euros.

We can find it in Cacine, in Guinea Bissau, where it sustains a local cooperative of fishermen that now can keep the catch in a refrigerated container in order to have more time to find good buyers; we can find it in Bruxelles, as it strives to press the European Unionin to applying fairer agricultural and food policies, perhaps by revising those fishing agreements that allowed European boats with no control in the seas of Guinea Bissau; we can find it in the Italian streets and schools, as it promotes new models of production and consumption of food based on local networks. Mani Tese has always found its strength in cooperation, information, raising political awareness and work on the Italian territory. That is why, for example, the environmental protection projects in Sudan or in Ecuador are to be considered together with the accomplishment of the announcement Upside Down, with whom we have financed small projects on the Italian territory supporting models of responsible consumption, in particular addressed to the prevention and the reduction of waste materials. Only this way it is possible to fully understand the incredible story of Finale Emilia, where the second-hand market which has been financing the activities of the association for years has become the centre of the physical and social reconstruction of a community damaged by the earthquake. That s our story, that s our future.
