3 Dear Youth- and Confirmant leader! Maria and Jostein from Norway visited Yohana and Leah in Tanzania. Even if their backgrounds and conditions might differ, the youth have many dreams of the future in common. In the movie you will get to know all four of them better. Throughout the country, confirmants and other church members collect money from Sunday to Tuesday before Palm Sunday. NCAs Lenten Campaign is a long tradition, gathering annualy fundraisers to a national effort for those who need it the most. In recent years, many parents have also participated in the effort, either as fundraisers, drivers, counting money or baking cookies. It is not fair that more than one billion people live in extreme poverty. NCAs lenten campaign challenges Norwegian youth and others in Norway to do an effort for those who need it the most. * By going out collecting money and by giving money we can help secure basic rights for the poor and provide opportunities which may seem self-evident here in Norway, such as schooling, health services and the hope of a future without poverty. * By signing the petition we can put press on people with power and authority, demanding that they make decisions which promote poor people's rights. This program will help youth to understand that povert is unfair, and show that we make a difference when we stand together in the promotion of a just world - without poverty. This program will help youth to understand that povert is unfair, and show that we make a difference when we stand together in the promotion of a just world - without poverty. There is an expression that says "Action without knowledge is foolish - and knowledge without action is cowardy." That is way the teaching through this program is intrinsically connected to actions, such as carrying the budket and signing the petition. this is reflected in the way the manual is designed, with an emphasis on knowledge in the first part, action in the last. We wish that this program can be a resource for those working with youth and confirmants, ant that is serves as a starting point for conversations dn engagement among youth. You will find more activities and background information on. NB: this manual is a two-year manual and shall be used in 2011 and For more information, see the users manual for this booklet. Good luck! When youth and Children in the churches take part in international solidarity with those that suffer, they experience their connection to a global community where all share a responsibility towards each other. The faith education must focus both on challenges and their potential for change - such as issues regarding consumption, climate and justice. The church must stand together with those groups in society who work towards promoting human dignity and a more just world. They must show alternatives for a more sustainable management of Creation. From faith education plan GOD GIVES - WE SHARE 2010

4 User Manual for this Booklet This booklet is meant to be used in the Lenten Campaigns of 2011 and In order to do 3TccT WTUcTc bzp[ QadZPbc X :XaZT]b =ßSWYT[_b the whole program, you need this booklet in addition to the campaign manual and this year's DVD. The booklet has two parts. The fifirst presents different activities that promote KNOWLEDGE. The other focuses on ACTION and offers different alternatives for action. Experience shows that it is best to spread the teaching on two sessions, the fifirst part being a regular confifirmant session (approx. 1hr or more), and the second as a short motivational session right before the kids go collecting money (15-20 mins.) This booklet gives you as a leader suggestions for how to do the two types of session.t Session before Campaign Day* There is no fifixed template for how to do this program. This booklet contains several building blocks you can use, organized in a natural order. There are also several activities available on our web page. If you only have one hour, we recommend skipping some of the activities in the booklet and use the following plan (the estimated time will vary depending on the size of the group): 1. Introduction to the session, 5 min (side 7) 2. Povery is about injustice, 10 min (page 8) 3. Introduction to Tanzania (without activity), 3 min (page 10) 4. Movie, 10 min (page 12) 5. About the Saving and Loan groups, 7 min (page 13) 6. Action: Petition, 15 min (page 14, Note: You will need the specifific campaign manual for 2011 or 2012) 7. Action: Go out collecting money, 5 min (page 16) The booklets contain more activities than these, and you will fifind more suggestions on the web page if you don't fifind the activities suitable for the actual group or venue - or if you have more time available. % ~?TSPV^VXbZ ^ [TVV U^a Z^] a\p]cta Short session on Campaign Day. It might be good to remind the collectors about what the money goes to, and what they should say to people when they go collecting. In the last pages of the booklet, page 22 and 23, we suggest how the Campaign Day session might be organized. You might use the fifilms from "Jonnas collecting school" you fifind them on the DVD. INNLEIING: Guide Introduction to the session Time: Suggestion for introductory question: Approx. 5 min. the Norwegian Church Aid campaign is about justice. * What do you mean by Justice? * What do you consider to be unfair? * Why is it unfair that some people are poor? That the youth understand what they are about to participate in, and why. You may say the following: Each year Norwegian Church Aid organizies a big campaign for a more just world, the lenten Campaign confi firmants, their parents and others help make a change in the world by collecting money and by encouraging people to sign a petition. You will also be able to take part in this joint eff ffort! The money we collect, goes to emergency aid, development work and advocacy work in poor countries all over the world. The petition signatures are handed to the politicians demanding that they make good decisions and change unjust systems that keep poor people down. In this session we will see how poor people stand together to have a better life, and how we can fi fight alongside them. We will talk about what the money we collect goes to, what the petitions can lead to, and why your eff fforts matter for poor people.

5 AKTIVITET Poverty is about Injustice ## Tidsbruk: time: About 10 min. ## Mål: Give the audience a sense of injustice and explain why poverty is a justice issue. ## Du You treng: will need: Five bags of candy. You may use more bags, as long as they may be divided by five. You can use bags with FOX or Non Stop, so everyone gets some. After finishing the trick, make sure everyone gets a taste! ## Do as follows: Introduce the game by creating the expectation that everyone is going to get candy. This Slik gjer will du: create an even stronger feeling of injustice later. You may begin by saying: "Before we go into this topic, I brought some candy I thought we could enjoy during this session." Then show what is going to be shared, and explain that the candy is a symbol of all the resources in the world. Divide in one large and one small group. The large group will have 80% of the confirmants as members, the small group 20%. See the below table to get a quick overview. The large group represents the poor, and the small group represents the richest. (Size of group - poor part - rich part) If the group is very big, you can pick five volunteers to come and represent rich and poor. * Ask how the candy should be shared in order to be shared fairly. * Ask then how they think the candy actually is going to be shared. * In the end, give one bag of candy to the big group, which represents the poor, and the rest of the bags to the small group, which represents the rich. Explain that this is how the world resources are distributed today: 20 per cent of the world population controls more than 80 per cent of the resources. You can continue by saying that there is enough candy for all (if you made sure you brought enough!), just as there is enough food for everyone in the world. Still, not everyone has enough food. * Ask how the youth feel about not receiving - when they know there is enough for everyone. Some may say they feel it is unfair. Explain that it doesn't have to be this way! Ask if the rich group wants to share the candy with rest, and make the connection to the topic of the session: that poverty is about the lack of opportunities, and that poverty is an issue of injustice. Note: in order to emphasize the unfairness even more, you may give more advantages to the "rich group". You may for example allow the rich to sit, while the poor must stand. You may find more activities visualizing unfair distribution on our web pages.

6 # TANZANIA : POVERTY AS A GLOBAL ISSUE OF INJUSTICE V ## Time: Approx. 3 min. Objective AKTI To show why poverty is a global justice issu - and how this relates to Tanzania You will need Preferrably a real 100 NOK note, but you may also use a fake note, hand-written or from the board game "Monopoly". Five posters or sheets with the names described below. ## To give a short introduction to the example country Tanzania, where this year's movie was made. ## You can say the following: Through Norwegian Church Aid Lenten Campaign we will be collecting money to support NCAs work for poor people throughout the world. In this session we will focus on Tanzania and what Norwegian Church Aid does there. You may ask what the youths know about the country, and share some facts: Population: about 42 million. Capital: Dodoma (previously Dar-Es-Salaam) Language: Swahili, kiunguja, english, Arabic and several other languages. Life expectation: 54 year for men, 51 for women. Poverty: About 36% of the Population lives below the poverty line. Education: About 22% can not read or write. Religion: 35% muslims, 35% traditional religions og 30% christians. On Zanzibar, more than 99% are muslims. Resources: Tanzania is the third largest producer of gold in Africa and a major exporter of coffe. ~?TSPV^VXbZ ^ [TVV U^a Z^] a\p]cta You may also use props that illustrate the diff fferent characters, such as a [striesekk] to visualize a poor farmer, a toy car for the buyer, a cup/bag of coff ffe, wigs, hats or other props that may make the youth remember the activity better Do the following: c Pick fi five volunteers. Give each one a sign with the names that are described below. These fi five will represent fi five [actors] who in diff fferent ways are involved in bringing the coff ffe to the Norwegians. Explain that Tanzania is a resource-rich country. Tanzania is the third largest gold producer in Africa, with an attractive wildlife for tourists and a lot of agriculture. Tanzania is a major coff ffee exporter, coff ffee being the second largest commodity legally traded in the world after oil. Wave the one hundred kroner note while you explain that coff ffee costs normally about 100 kr per kilo in a grocery store in Norway. Now we will get to know the diff fferent people who are involved in filling fi our cups with coff ffee. Introduce the fi five by telling these stories about their life: Bjarne/Beate the Farmer: Coff ffee grower from Tanzania. Plants the coff ffee bushes, tends to them to make them grow, and harvests the beans when they are ripe. Works long days together with his/her eight children who will sustain him/her when he/she gets old. Odd/Olga the Buyer: Lives in Tanzania, travels from farm to farm in a rusty van to buy coff ffee beans. Trond/Trine the Transporter: lives in the US and has figured out it is profi fi fitable to transport beans from Tanzania to the countries where the beans are treated.b Yohana[: HPWP]P b^\ ST \ßcTa X PZbY^]b [\T] Ta ^UcT \TS \^a bx cx[ Vaß]bPZbÌZTaT] 5^c^) 6aTV AßS[P]S 1dXRZ :XaZT]b =ßSWYT[_ :XaZT]b =ßSWYT[_b UPbcTPZbY^]!!! ~

7 Show the Movie Kari/Kjell the Merchant: Works in the shop at (their current location), and when I buy four bags of coff ffee with 250 grams each, I must pay one hundred. Give the note to the Merchant, and explain that he or she of course has to share with the others who brought the coff ffee to the shop. But how big a share should each one get? First ask them how much they think they deserve. Then you can explain - with a bit of irony, as suggested below - how much each one gets in the real world. Kari/Kjell has a child to take care of, and Norway is of course a very expensive country to live in, and even if the education is free, we need designer clothes, ice cream and make-up. So if he is going to manage he needs at least 50% of the profi fit. And now comes the part that will make the participants and everyone who watches remember this activity: You will tear the note in half - and give the largest part (at least 55% - see below) to the Merchant! (The note does not lose its value as long as you have the control number and at least 55% of the note. Then the notes may be used in a regular store after the activity. See Bank of Norway for details) AKTI Inger/Inga Fabric Owner: owns a fabric that treats the beans, cherns, packs them on ship them out to the stores. The movie provides basic information about the topic of the campaign and calls to action. Do the following: even if poor people such as Bjarne/Beate don't get enough money to get by. Inger/Inge WPaSTc_ÌbP\T You may\ìct])3tcz^bcpaìuß[vyt\ts end with a short conversation about how this example shows how poverty in one part of the world is about global connections and global injustice.

Do as follows: You may say the following: We are now going to see a movie about Norwegian confi firmands who have been visiting Tanzania. They have become friends with youth in Tanzania, and have learned about the projects we support when we collect money during the NCA campaign. EXb PZbY^]b [\T] When you run through the information you can do the activity "Vote with your feet", which involves reading diff fferent statements out loud, as explained above. Those who believe the statement is true, stand up. Those who believe the statement is wrong, remain seated. You may challenge those who disagree with the statement to tell what they believe is the right answer. If you do not want or do not have time, you may also just read through the information You may say the following: We will do an activity where you will give your opinion on diff fferent statements. If you believe the statement is wrong, please remain seated. Odd/Olga lives in Tanzania, where few people earn enough to have a safe life, which is ok, because if they had earned the same as a Norwegian worker, they never would have sold the coff ffee. Luckily she manages to get 7 % of the profi fit, enough to >VWTaZYT\caXZbTcb^\VYTa pay the shool fees for the eldest son. Of course it's no use thinking of putting the rest of the kids in schools (laughs, PcST[cPZPaP]T^VP[[Tb^\ showing the foolishness of the idea of school for all the children). Tear away most of the remaining piece of the note, and bta_ìzyt\cx[ìwdvbtst]]t give it to Odd/Olga. The tiny last piece goes to Bjarne/Beate. PZcXeXcTcT])3daXeWd]SaT[P T] Xc^^VVYTeST]bcßabcTST[T] Bjarne/Beate gets 3% of the profi fit. It is not enough for school fees or health services, and it is hard to get enough food as \X]bc$$PeWd]SaT[P T] well as managing the plantation. But that's probably ok, since we drink so much coff ffee in Norway that it would be too expensive to pay what it really costs to make. And I guess no-one would want to pay the right price if it gets too expensive, byìd]stacx[:pax:yt[[ Insert the DVD, choose Aksjonsfi film Inger/Inga feels the same way: it is expensive to be current, and both her children has expensive cell phones, so she takes 25% (tear the half note in two, and give it to the Fabric Owner)Trond/Trine has to pay the mortgage of his huge transport vessel and need some of the income. Therefore he takes 15%. (Tear roughly half of what is left of the note and give the largest piece to Trond/Trine). SAVINGS- AND LOAN GROUPS IN TANZANIA Statement: the Savings- and loan groups supported by Norwegian Church Aid in Tanzania are called VICOBA.. Correct! VICOBA is short for Village Community Bank. In Tanzania, many do not have access to regular bank services, like we have in Norway. When you can not save or loan money, like in Norway. When you can't save or loan money through a good banking system, it is hard to get out of poverty. Therefore Norwegian Church Aid has started more than a thousand village banks, or savingsin the movie you meet Jostein from Norway and Yohana fromor loan groups in Tanzania, and it keeps increasing.

Youth have always promoted change. If we are enough people who stand together to erradicate povery, we can obtain justice. But we must use the opportunities we have! One such opportunity is Norwegian Church Aid's Lenten Campaign, another is signing petitions or becoming a member of organizations who work for a just world. # ~?TSPV^VXbZ ^ [TVV U^a Z^] a\p]cta Petition In the fi first part of the session the youth have learned about why the world is unfair and how NCA works for Justice. In the movie they ar also challenged to take action themselves. The alternatives for action on the following pages provides several opportunities to join the struggle for a more just world. Time: Approx. 15 min To give youth the opportunity to infl fluence decisions in benefi fit of poor people Do as follows: Download the PowerPoint fi file and manual for the political campaign on www. The youth can sign on the treasure map from the information package. The petition is an important part of the program, and in the movie the confi firmants are challenged to ask how they can participate. This part also contains an activity that can make the content easier to understand and inspire to action. If you have extra time: If you more time, we suggest you start informing about how we can fi fight poverty through aff ffecting political decisions. Note: on YouTube you will fifind three short movies who show how to do advocacy work in a fun way. You may show one of them in connection with this activity. In later years, NCA has succeeded in affecting local decisions who contribute to a positive change globally. We invited the comedian Sigrid Bonde Tusvik (known from NRK) to make a funny interpretation of the following methods: 1. petitions. 2. Direct dialog with politicians. 3. Local press work. Enter on youtube.com - Kirkens Nødhjelp/ Den som tier samtykker. You may see the result there (note: strong language in one of the movies). You may say: In order to create lasting change we must address the causes of the global injustices by aff ffecting those in power. They may be politicians, companies or individuals. They all make decisions that can lead to more or less poverty in the world. By standing together, being many and calling for attention, we can aff ffect those who make the decisions. And every year, confi firmants and others aff ffect politicans to make more just decisions. You don't have to be a die-hard activist to change the world! :XaZT]b =ßSWYT[_b UPbcTPZbY^]!!! ~ $

9 HANDLING: Time: Approx. 10 minutes To show that youth who stand together, make a change. You may say: It costs little, but helps a lot, to join Changemaker, Norwegian Church Aid's youth movement. If a lot of young people stand together to put pressure on decisionmakers, influencing them gets easier. Youth have always changed the world. Therefore, the 50 kroners you pay to become a member of Changemaker, is a good investment. The more who join, the more pressure Changemaker can put on those who have the power to change the causes of poverty. Changemaker aims to address the root causes of injustice and poverty, and have local groups throughout the country. To become a member you must be between 13 and 30 years of age, and Changemaker organizes camps annualy for the members. You may join Changemaker through the web pages, where you can also sign the petition and learn more about how vere med you og can forandre change verda: the world. Of course we can change the world! Of course we can change the world! Information about Changemaker Changemaker has made a lot of materials about global justice. You can find it on the web page or by contacting the Changemaker office. Contact us if you want a visit or help to start a Changemaker-group in your church! Kontaktinformasjon: Time.: Approx. 2. min. To let the confirmants know that they may join a Facebook group that gives them a chance to fight for justice. Do as follows: It costs little to join the page KONFIRMANT 2011 / KONFIRMANT 2012 on Facebook. There you will find different activities that help erradicate global poverty. Note: you may also show the Facebook page during the session, become a member and invite the confirmants on Facebook.

10 HANDLING: COLLECTING WITH THE BUCKET Mål: To show what the money that is collected during Norwegian Church Aid's Lenten campaign goes to, and motivate to go Show Jonnas Bucket School part 3, which is collecting. about what the money goes to. You find the film on the DVD, under the menu Jonnas You can say: Bucket School. You may encourage the Norwegian Church Aid's campaign is about fighting together for confirmants to see the rest of the lessons a just world. On (the date) we will be collecting money for through the Facebook-page "Confirmant 2012" Norwegian Church Aid carrying buckets. or use the other lessons up on to the actual We saw in the movie that the loan groups that Norwegian campaign day.

Each year, confirmants and provide nourishable vegetables for a family in others go with buckets during Norwegian Church Aid's Lenten Campaign. The money goes to all of Norwegian Church Aid's work. The loan groups are one example, but there is also a need for other long-term development work, catastrophy aid and advocacy work. Norwegian Church Aid makes sure the money that is collected, is put to use where it is most needed. When you are going with the bucket collecting money, someone might ask what the money is for. In relation to this we will show a video from Jonnas Bucket School. Guatemala * To run a loan group in Tanzania, it costs 1000 kr a month during the startup phase. After three months the groups themselves take over. AVSLUTNING: Devotional Time: Approx. 5 min Suggestion: Read Psalms 8:3-6 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet. When we look upon the stars, and consider the infinity of space - we are quite small in the large scheme of things. At the same time there is a greatness to being a human being! God created Man - each on of us - and saw that it was good. No matter who we are, where we live, where we grew up, where we may live. Either we are rich, right in the middle, or poor - that does not determine our value as human beings. The value lies within us - in the fact that we are human beings - unique and magnificent. And we live as part of a community - in the family, among friends, in church, on school... But we are also part of a larger community - that stretches beyond our local community - beyond Norway. We are part of a community that stretches across the whole Earth. For we are all human beings - created by God. And we have the responsibility to make this community the best possible for all. We are created different as human beings - we have different abilities and talents. But we who live in the part of the world which uses most of resources, have an extra responsibility to do what we can to let others have the same chances as we do. God needs us to share the responsibility for this community, and God believes in us! We are challenged to take responsibility for each other - because we are all human. It is about justice. Prayer: You may light a candle for all of the four prayers in the text below. The confirmants may also be asked to light candles - or write their own prayers. Dear God Thank you for having created us with an infinite value. Help us show each other that we are valuable. Give us courage to do what we can to make life good, both to ourselves and others. Help us to join in taking responsibility for creating a more just world. Amen.

What can we do so there are less poor? First of all we can support Norwegian Church Aid's Lenten Campaign. Norwegian Church Aid says that people have rights, they are not merely victims who need help. Norwegian Church Aid also works through local parner organizations, any by supporting Norwegian Church Aid's work you are also supporting local work in many poor countries in Africa, Asia and South America. Secondly we can participate in advocacy campaigns. Then we can inflfluence those who make decisions that may reduce poverty. Decision-makers might be politicians in the Parliament or your own city, they might be shop-owners, parents or the confifirmants themselves. We all make choices that have consequences for a just distribution of resources, and all choices may be changed. We all make choices that have consequences for a fair distribution of resources, and all suggestions may be affected. Thirdly we can become members of an organization that work against poverty, such as Changemaker, Norwegian Church Aid's youth organization. Use the instrumental version and have the Confifirmants sing the song themselves The world is not as it seems like on TV They always talk about bad things, that s not really good Of course there are some challenges like everywhere else But we think the people in this world are misunderstood Come on to Africa to see what s below our feet and I can tell you that it ain t what you would think So come on to Africa and see The world s turned upside down you ve got to fi fight it Half of the world is bad, my friend Are you sure you have done as much as you could? So come and watch them and give them a view

12 GATHERING ON CAMPAIGN DAY Time: About minutes. * Go through practical information about the collecting process - use the movies about "jonnas bucket school" on DVD - or put the "kick-off movie" in the background. * Show the confirmant movie to inspire and give information about what the money goes to. * Wish the volunteers good luck and tell them that their work is very valuable and useful. Practical information: 1. Remember to have the ID cards visible. 2. It is important to walk the right route - and the entire route. 3. If people do not have cash: sow the bucket with payment details. 4. If people are not at home: put a post-it note on the door. 5. If some people are rude or start arguing: tell them to call NCAs main office, which has an open line during the whole evening on campaign day. What should I say when I knock on the door? 1. Introduce yourself politely, be calm and articulate. "Hello, I come from Norwegian Church Aid. Do you want to support our work?" 2. SMILE! It establishes a connection and encourages people to support the campaign. Be confident and happy. Your effort today means something to poor people. 3. How much can the money buy? 4. Remember to say thanks. People give according to their abilities. It is important to say thank you no matter the amount. Each year there is made a card or a small booklet for the volunteers. Order this together with the rest of the materials, and distribute it to the confirmants. You will find some short information about the theme, what the money is for and som short info about Norwegian Church Aid. Proper gear for volunteers Post-it blokk ID-kort Bøsse Labeled post-it notes Hello, I am from Norwegian Church Aid. Do you want to support our work? Post-its. ID card Collector Bucket. Show the movie for inspiration Show the movie on the DVD - especially if you haven't already. Show the Kick-Off-movie You may let the movie show in the background with the sound off while the volunteers get their credencials and their buckets. Wish pengar! the youth Good Luck If there is going to be served hot chocolate, hot dogs or similar, the volunteers should be told before they leave for the job. Remember to tell everyone to go the whole round! Often those who live in the last house are waiting for the bucket collector with a lot of money ready to give!
