Since Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion on February 24, Ukraine has proven to be a country that, despite all odds, unambiguously demonstrates incredible societal resilience during an unprovoked war. Indeed, as a recent Wall Street Journal article In short, “civil society is Ukraine’s secret weapon against Russia”.

Ukrainian civilians, churches, non-governmental organizations, many in the private sector, and its allies bravely stood up against Russia and “refuted Putin’s assertion that Ukraine is not a real nation “, according to the Journal.

Like the Journal article underline,

[Ukraine] has a strong civil society. … Ukrainians have responded with voluntary efforts that have made important contributions to the defense of the country. … Ukrainians have spent the past eight years building their capacity to govern themselves, and a vibrant civil society is proving to be a significant advantage in the war against Russia.

But it is not only Ukrainian civil society that is essential in this fight; it is the help of civil societies from nations around the world that is crucial to defending Ukraine and helping its people survive and ultimately recover from this tragedy.

Like Russiathe war of aggression continues to cause a huge humanitarian catastrophe, the stakes are high in Ukraine and beyond, with freedom on the line. It is essential that America and its allies work with a network of members of civil society to provide the most practical and effective assistance to the Ukrainian people as quickly and efficiently as possible.

As it is widely reported, Polish citizens and other Ukrainian neighbors such as Moldova and Romania not only hosted refugee families, but also delivered food and other necessary items directly to Ukraine. This informal network was a true representation of civil society in action.

One of the countless such cases is the work of Poland Marcin Nowacki.

Nowacki, a prominent voice promoting market-oriented reforms as vice-president of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers of Poland, organized a small, but very quickly responded, humanitarian convoy, along with other non-profit organizations.

Nowacki was the recipient of the Heritage FoundationThe 2022 Steven M. Sass Award for Economic Freedom, which was established in 2020 to recognize and encourage individuals and organizations who help promote free market principles and policies. He described the convoy at his recent award presentation:

The purpose of the trip was to provide medicines, medical and hygienic material. Equipped with two full buses, we went to the place indicated by the Ukrainian side, which packs and distributes the products where the needs are greatest. …

Lviv is currently a transfer and logistics hub supporting central and eastern Ukraine. On the outskirts of the city, we meet our guide who takes us to the logistics center. A team of people were waiting there, and they immediately started unloading. All products were sorted immediately after unloading and correctly described. Process management is at the highest level. … It should be added that the residents of Lviv are staying at home and supporting the accommodation, catering and transportation of refugees from areas affected by an unauthorized Russian attack. … Returning from Ukraine, we had the honor of transporting people evacuated from Ukraine.

Sharing some of the key recommendations and needs he had observed, Nowacki further pointed out that with the current crisis and the need to help Ukraine being unprecedented in Europe’s modern history, “Here, it is necessary to involve ourselves – civil society” from many countries around the world. Nowacki now organizes additional convoys on an ongoing basis.

Indeed, countless notable private responses from civil society such as Nowacki’s have been crucial in helping Ukraine while the sudden exodus of millions of Ukrainians to neighboring countries and beyond has overwhelmed authorities. Europeans.

In this regard, it is worth highlighting an important observation from a recent Heritage Foundation policy paper: “[Ukraine’s] churches, nongovernmental organizations, and their American partners provide the United States with an opportunity to avoid the failed aid models of the past and ensure that American generosity reaches the people of Ukraine quickly and effectively.

It is certainly in the interests of the United States and his allies channel much-needed humanitarian aid to Ukraine through faith-based and other civil society networks, where possible.

And now is definitely the time to act.

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Eti-Osa Council of Lagos State, who also serves as Chief of Staff to the Chairman of the Council, Aremo Olusegun Oyindasola, was recently awarded the title of Chief of Sarunmi Owu Akinale, Ewekoro, Ogun State by Oba Adewunmi Ogunleye Afogunlanafade, Towolade from Akinale, Arole Olowu. In this interview with selected journalists, the seasoned administrator talks about the need to encourage tradition and culture in society. GREGORY AUSTIN NWAKUNOR was there.

As part of the events planned for the 16th birthday of Oba Afogunlanafade, the enthronement of Towolade of Akinale, you receive the title of Sarunmi Owu of Akinale. But you’re not from this town. What do you have to say about that?
Well, it’s not true that I’m not from this town. I come from Owu. Our territory extends towards this area to Lagos and the Republic of Benin.

What do you consider to be core characteristics that set you apart from the rest of the chefs awaiting this award today?
There’s not too much. I think the king said he gave me this honor because I prepared the house of the gods in Okeowo. That’s why he honors me as Sarunmi Owu of Akinale.

What does it mean to be the Sarunmi Owu of Akinale?
You know, at that time, in times of war, Sarunmi was one of the main warriors in war.

What came to mind when you were told about the title?
At first, I was just wondering. I’m a Prince of Owu, so this baffles me. The king said to me: ‘my friend, take it’. So I see it as a call to service. Nothing else.

What would the title of chef change in you?
In fact, I see it as a call to service. It is because before I was Aremo Itori and I am still Aremo Itori. I see this as a call for service. Service not only to Itori but also to the Itori people.

It’s quite ironic to see an educated man like you indulge entirely in traditional or cultural matters. Some people see it as a fetish. What makes you so passionate about your people?
In fact, I am a nationalist. So, I believe that the type of education that the colonial masters gave us is a backward education. This is because education is meant to enlighten, it is not just to get a paper degree. You must be relevant to your immediate society. I believe education is what remains after you have forgotten what you thought. Your education must therefore be relevant to your society. If your education is not relevant to your society, it means you are uneducated.

Earlier, you said something and I would like you to clarify it further. “It disconcerts me”, why would a prince, an Arole, agree to be a chief in another city?
In fact, what the king is trying to do is very simple. It’s like saying: a problem for one is a problem for all. What I did is not for this town. This is for the main town. He’s only trying to recognize me so I can do more. It’s like saying: Segun, you did it in Abeokuta, you have to come here, try to bring me closer.

Originally, you are not from this city?
It depends on how you look at it. Any town in Owu is my town. We all spread from somewhere. It’s like old farmland. So it’s the same sparse land. It’s only recently that people are just trying to delineate. Which is very unnecessary.

Speaking of chieftaincy titles, is it the culture of your roots that gave you this full drive to get involved after you made a name for yourself in South West Nigeria and Lagos in particular?
In fact, I am a culture lover. If you look at the type of education they give us, it makes us know more about Europe than about our society. You cannot grow without growing your company. Today we have so many unemployment cases, rising crime rates, it’s really appalling. This is because many leaders export jobs.

What do you mean? How do our leaders export jobs?
When you have money and you keep it in a foreign country, it means you are exporting employment to another country. What I’m basically saying is that all these titles that they give us are just to pin us down, saying that’s your root. I accept this title because of my mindset on education. Education must be relevant to your society. If you can’t help your society, you are uneducated.

So, what should we expect from you in this city now that you have been granted the title “Sarunmi Owu of Akinale”?

Society is dysfunctional. Many people don’t know where they come from and this mentality affects us. If you don’t know where you come from, you wouldn’t know where you are, talk less about where you are going. Basically, what I tried to do is very simple. There is no way to help this town without helping other villages around it. Basically what they’re telling us is: look at Segun, it’s your root. Bring in investors. Once you invested in a company, young people would find a job. The crime rate would be reduced, and a lot of development would come. People need to know their roots. Whatever you do, wherever you are, come do the same here. Thus, we can have peace and harmony in society.

You are currently an Aremo. What was your experience as a chef?
This resulted in a lot of learning and connection. Before becoming Aremo, I did not know that the Attorney General of Lagos State was from that city. The Speaker of the Lagos State Legislative Assembly hails from this city. The current Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, hails from this region. So it makes you know your people. Plus, it drives engagement. The essence of life is to give back to society. This is because if you don’t train your staff, it will affect your children later. They will fight back. They will see you as being on top. You must always help your people reduce crime and promote development.

Are you a Muslim titleholder?
You are also a traditionalist and a Christian too. How do you manage both?
In the Holy Quran, there are five groups of people who would enter the kingdom of God on the last day. These are the Jews, the people who believe in the Torah; the Abasrah, the disciples of John the Baptist; the third are Christians, those who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The fourth are the Muslims, who follow the Prophet Muhammad. The fifth are neither Jews, nor disciples of John the Baptist, nor Christians, nor Muslims, but they believe in God. Who are they? They are traditionalists. It is because when they call on their God, he answers them. Look at the Hindus, the Chinese, you say they worship idols but yet they move on. You who think you worship God, are you moving forward? But you only find that in Africa. Where you have very religious people but no development. The Arabs, for example, are also Muslims but they are progressing. Well, it’s because of colonialism. This is because European countries use us to grow. They have no resources. They are plundering our resources. That’s why they grow. They determine the price of your products. At the same time, they determine the price of their own product.

People tend to see politics as a dirty game and a man of culture is supposed to be pure and clean. How do you combine the two?
I used to tell my people that whenever they complained that this government was not doing enough, I laughed. Do you know why I joined politics? It’s because I love my company. It’s because if you don’t join, one day they would legislate that a man is now a woman. We are all a product of the society in which we found ourselves. What I’m basically saying is that if you don’t participate in politics, you’ll let fools rule you. You will even give room for a homosexual to rule you because they could turn a man into a woman. They could wake up today and say look, we are making a law that all men will become women. So I’m in politics to make sure things run smoothly. Although many people see politics as a business, it is a service. If I was not in politics, it would be very difficult for me to improve society. It would not be possible for me to change society. So you have to be there to change things. There is no way to change a society without being in government. This is because they are all intertwined. You must participate in politics to serve your society. Of course, a lot of people got into politics because of the money. They see it as a short path to wealth. Politics must serve your society and there is no way to serve your society without being part of that society. You must come to the base. Giving a chiefdom title is part of the activities related to coming to the base. For most of these things a lot of people blame our political leaders because white people have come and gone but our leaders have had a lot of chances to effect change but so far we still have problems.

Let me tell you something, society deserves the kind of government it has. Every society deserves the kind of government it has. I am also a Muslim title holder.

LEESBURG, Fla. — A longtime group director from Leesburg High School and a guidance counselor who also helped lead the group are off work pending the investigation, after allegations that the group director was leading a “sectarian” secret society inside the school, according to the police.

The student also said that while he was in high school, the guidance counselor, who was part of the group, sent him sexually explicit messages and asked to meet him, and the director of the group knew about it and deleted the messages.

Leesburg High School guidance counselor Leonardo “Lenny” Finelli Jr. once served as a music and marching instructor under longtime orchestra director Gabriel Fielder.

In his resignation letter, Finelli wrote, “While I was being investigated and reassigned, I did not call or show for 4 days. I understand this is unprofessional.

Finelli resigned instead of being fired.

Fielder has been the group’s director for almost 20 years.

Last month, a former student filed a report with Leesburg Police stating that when the student was 17, he was a member of a secret society at Leesburg High School called the “Council of Elders.”

He told police the group was “bigoted” and led by Fielder.

Meanwhile, the student said Finelli “requested they meet” and asked him how big his penis was and what his sexual orientation was.

The student said that when Fielder found out, he deleted the messages and told the student and Finelli to stay apart.

The student said that after graduating from high school, he began a sexual relationship with Fenelli and moved in with him. Because he was 18 at the time, the prosecutor’s office determined that no charges were filed.

State records show that Fielder and Finelli started a nonprofit a few years ago called the “Council of Elders.”

Next Monday, the school board will consider whether it will allow Fielder to resign in lieu of firing.

Nurturing students on their pre-health journeys, Baylor’s Pre-Physician Assistant Society (PAS) seeks to provide members with the tools and knowledge to not only be successful in their undergraduate pursuits, but also to adequately prepare them. to their future as practicing health care providers.

According to PAS websitethe primary goals of the organization are to educate students about the physician assistant (PA) profession, facilitate the application process for PA schools, and increase community and service in the lives of students .

“The PA Society was created to help pre-PA students who want to become medical assistants to come together, form a community and support each other throughout our undergraduate journey as we prepare to apply for the ‘PA school,’ Houston senior and co-company president Uchenna Egwim said. “PA school is a bit different from other healthcare professions because there is no direct path to get into PA school. There are a lot of requirements, like patient contact hours and certain classes, and a lot of people aren’t necessarily educated on how to be a PA or what even a PA does. So we’re just here to help guide Baylor students with that.

According to American Academy of Physicians Associates, a PA is a licensed clinician who practices medical treatment and diagnosis in all specialties and settings. They are dedicated to expanding access to care and transforming health and well-being.

Through social events, workshops, service opportunities, mission trips, and graduate school visits, Baylor’s Pre-AP Society provides members with a port to connect with like-minded students and develop relationships. skills and perspectives that will help them in their future careers.

During spring break, members of the Pre-PA Society had the opportunity to serve overseas, putting their clinical skills to the test, on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic.

“It was really helpful for all the girls to see people using their profession and their gifts in a way that serves others,” said Caroline Kemp, sophomore and missionary trip president.

By shadowing doctors and attending the clinic, students gained real-world experience far beyond the classroom.

“We all became really close and all the girls were really open to sharing their stories with each other, so it was a great bonding activity,” Kemp said. “[It was] also so good for the girls to see firsthand people using their professions and their gifts and their time to serve others and serve God. Only [to] see a little window into how they can make it someday.

PAS also offers local service opportunities that can be completed in person and virtually. Each semester, the organization plans several larger service events, including volunteering at the Baylor Bearathon and participate in the whole city To go out service day.

“Last semester, about 40 members and I helped paint this church building in downtown Waco, and it was so rewarding,” said Avery Fabre, junior and service president in Denver, Colorado. “I know the pastor was very grateful for us and he even brought us into the building afterwards and prayed for us, which was so wonderful and unexpected.”

The service is offered weekly to assist with individual member schedules. The Pre-PA Society also encourages members to volunteer and follow medical professionals at Waco Family Medicine and the Mission Waco Health Clinic.

Virtual service opportunities include taking time out of your day to call palliative care patients to simply be a friend to them as they deal with the challenges of their situation.

Each year, the Pre-PA Society welcomes guest speakers—usually practicing PAs or graduate PA students—to attend their meetings and provide members with guidance and mentorship. They also bring in professionals to educate members on how to prepare for the PA school application process, providing advice on best practices to stand out.

“I would encourage someone to join the PA Society if they’re interested in being a PA because in college it’s so easy to track moves and take classes because you want to get a grade and get caught up in all the to-do lists and get a major,” Kemp said. “It’s so easy to forget what your end goal is and be in the PA Society, come somewhere once a week or every two weeks that I’m reminded, ‘Okay, that’s the long-term goal’, it really refocuses me.”

By providing a network for students to feel supported, the Pre-PA Society plays its part in launching its members into their future as healthcare providers.

“The PA Society is beneficial because I learned small details that made a difference to me in how I approached my journey to becoming a PA that I otherwise wouldn’t have known if I wasn’t part of it. of this organization,” Egwim said. “I just think it’s really helpful to be around a group of people who have the same career goals as you.”
