Zambian Waithood

torsdag, mars 19th, 2015

Welcome to an exhibition by Smip12 from Rosendalsgymnasiet with photos and art from their field study in Zambia.

ZambianWaithoodGrand opening 4 May | 17:00-20:00  | Fredens hus, Drottning Kristinas väg 1a, Uppsala

Waithood, ”waiting for adulthood”, is a term that has become more relevant in low and middle income countries this past century. The stage in life where a prolonged adolescence sets individuals back from being socially accepted as an adult and the responsibilities and commitments adulthood may include, is often a issue for youth in young democracies, as well as economically vulnerable societies, such as in Zambia.

The exhibition, ”Zambian Waithood”, is based on Zambian individuals and their connection to Waithood in ways of goals, obstacles and general thoughts on the future that lies ahead of them.

Zam-Nordic Golf Tournament 2013

onsdag, mars 18th, 2015


Bästa Zam-Nordic golfare!

Jag vill här tacka alla deltagare som var med och spelade 2013 års tävling på Ombergs Golf! Vi hade två mycket trevliga dagar med bra väder, en bana i toppskick och många trevliga människor.

Solklar vinnare blev Fredrik Rusch som spelade otrolig golf!

Under torsdagens middag kom förslag om ändringar gällande Zam-Nordic golftävling. Dessa diskuterades av alla närvarande och eftersom ingen i styrelsen (grundarna av tävlingen) fanns med, beslutade tävlingsdeltagarna att följande gäller fr o m detta år:

  • Om arrangör av Zam-Nordic lyckas vinna, ska denne inte arrangera nästa års tävling.  Arrangörskapet går i stället till andrapristagaren.
  • Tidigare regel, att högsta hcp för herrar ska vara 24, ändras nu till 36. Detta för att alla ska kunna tävla på samma villkor. Banans slope gäller för både poängberäkningen och beräkningen av antal slag netto.

I samband med middagen på torsdagskvällen höll Rolf Skudal ett mycket fint tal till minne av Jacob Storaas. Jacob, som var med och grundade Zam-Nordic, avled den  6 juli, efter en tids sjukdom.

Innan tävlingen fick vi tyvärr besked att Ola och Eva Wennerby inte kunde delta i år, då Ola blivit svårt sjuk i lungcancer. På lördagen fick vi veta att Ola somnade in på fredagskvällen med Eva vid sin sida.

Vi sänder våra varmaste tankar till familjen Storaas och Wennerby som varit trogna deltagare på Zam-Nordic genom åren.

Jag vill avsluta med att önska Fredrik Rusch lycka till med nästa års tävling! Det var riktigt roligt att ordna tävlingen och att få träffa gamla Zambiavänner! På återseende!

Hälsningar, Anders Gustafsson


Creating wealth and empowerment through restoration of Zambia’s ecosystems

måndag, oktober 3rd, 2011

Former Zambian MP Rolf Shenton presented his views on Natural Resource Management in Zambia as a vehicle to poverty reduction on the After Work meeting 21 September.

Empowerment and good stewardship through Community Based Natural Resource Management is a promising way to a future for the Zambian youth under 15, who constitutes 50% of the Zambian population. The successful Namibia’s conservancy project is seen as a role model. Read more (pdf) >>

Overwhelming Independence Day

The ambassador embracing two birthday children on the Independence of Zambia.

True to tradition, Zambians and friends of Zambia joined once again on the 24th of October to celebrate Zambia’s 45 years of indepence from colonial rule.

As one entered the Zambia House in Djursholm, the site of seeing the many women and men so glamorously dressed in different patterns of the traditional chitenge dresses and shirts, was just overwhelming.

As the independence celebration was happening just at the end of the European Development Days (EDD), and many Zambians who had been at this conference were amidst including the Auditor General to name a few.

When time for speeches came, SweZam through its Chairman Rolf Svanström commended Zambia for having identified the Health scandal and bringing out the culprits to book, however what he challenged Zambia was the lack of timeframes for these development issue.

The vice-chairperson of Pamodzi association reminded all the local Zambians present on who they were as Zambians living in Sweden in the diaspora.

The third and final speech was from the Ambassador, Joyce Musenge, whose speech was mainly based on reflections from the European Development Days. She critically looked at issues of how the West and developing countries should standardize terminologies when reporting. She gave an example of the misunderstanding in the categorisations of Corruption and theft in the events of the Health scandal.

After the speeches a toast was made in honour of the political leadership and thereafter everyone were invited to the buffer table where hot Zambian delicacies comprising nshima, stews and vegetables of rape and chiwawa were served. SweZam had for sale some brouchers whose profits went to its Youth club in Kitwe.
