*** Causing a stir:

Ned,

We're currently working with U.K. Soldiers here to help an orphange here in Kabul.

Talked to Sgt. Jonny Howells (U.K. Army) about what they need. Right now the team is supporting two orphanages and a school here in Kabul and the best we can do for these kids is pull together clothing, school supplies and toys. A few specifics would include: Soccer balls and simple toys, legal pads / note pads, pens, rulers, crayons – coloring books, baby clothes, t-shirts for kids up to 14yrs…The Brits have done a great job supporting local kids here in Kabul and all in their off time. A few of us newly arrived from the U.S. side decided to join the effort since we're all mostly over the 1776 / 1812 business.

Anyway, really appreciate any of the help you might be able to provide in getting the word out. We don't require a lot from any one person but a little from each goes a long way in helping some kids in Kabul.

*** From Bill Ryerson:

Hi Ned,

We will be starting a new project in Burkina Faso using two radio serial dramas to promote family planning plus spacing and limiting of childbearing. This person will oversee the entire project. We will favor country nationals who apply. Here’s the announcement I sent out about the project last week.

Best wishes,

Bill

1.) Project manager, Population Media Center, Burkina Faso

I am pleased to report that Population Media Center has received funding from UNFPA in Burkina Faso for two 156-episode radio serial dramas for promotion of family planning use. As you’ll see from the data below, a PMC program has the potential to dramatically improve the reproductive health situation in Burkina Faso. One of the programs will be in the Mooré language and one will be in Djoula.

The barriers to use of modern methods of contraception are largely informational and cultural. Among sexually active, fertile women in union, the top reasons for non-use are the desire for more children (18%); personal, partner, or religious opposition (17%); fear of health effects (10%); and not knowing a method or a source (10%). Cost is cited by only 2.5%, and lack of access is cited by only 0.7%.

The annual population growth rate in Burkina Faso is 3.4 per cent, which means that the population is doubling every 20 years. The total fertility rate is the 8th highest in the world at 6.0 children per woman. The majority of the population is young: 46% of the population is under the age of 15. Population growth and population dynamics are important challenges that must be addressed in order to reduce poverty.

Childbearing begins early in Burkina Faso: almost half of all women in union less than 20 years of age have already given birth to at least one living child. The actual fertility rate closely follows the desired family size for women: Married women interviewed during the 2003 Demographic and Health Survey in Burkina Faso said they would like to have about six children on average. Married men would like seven children.

Although knowledge of contraceptive methods in Burkina Faso is high (92% of those interviewed know at least one modern method) only 13% of married women are currently using a modern method of contraception.
