Voices from the Réseau Ecole RadioChico

SOULEYMANE GUINDO

Coordinator of the Réseau Ecole RadioChico Mali. International correspondent for RadioChico Switzerland in Mali since 2019. Language teacher (German and English). Member of Junior Chamber International Mali.

«In Dogon country, water is a symbol of humanity, and the Dogons attribute divine value to it. It was discovered by Nommo, master of speech and water, and ancestral Water Genie. So this resource is one of the most respected in Dogon country. So, as a son of the Dogon Country, it’s my right to contribute to safeguarding water. So, through RadioChico Suisse, I discovered the blue community, which consists in the rational use of water. With the children of the Radiochico MALI school, we take action through small steps rather than speeches. Our small steps consist in planting plants and vegetables. Then the children will understand that only water can make trees and vegetables grow and give us fruit. So the importance of water is well remembered by the children and by everyone. I’m more than ever happy to be a member of this community and finally contribute to a world with clean drinking water for all living beings with my children from the RadioChico Mali school. And to help nature conserve this precious resource, water. Without water, there is no life.»

TIÈDIÈ TOGOLA

Teacher for history and geography since 2022 (general secondary education). Environmental geographer. Member of the Mali Blue Community.

«The Blue Community is an initiative that aims to ensure the rational use of water by all living beings. It sees water as a resource that has the same right as all other living beings, because without it no living species could exist on earth. But nowadays, this resource is under threat as never before, especially as the consequences of climate change make themselves felt. As a result, joint action is imperative, particularly in our African countries, especially those south of the Sahara. We all need to feel like ambassadors for the Blue Community, by planting trees and promoting environmentally-friendly water-use techniques. The only way to save mankind is to ensure the continuity and preservation of nature in all its diversity, a common struggle. With this in mind, as part of the Blue Community school RadioChico Mali, I am an active member of Mali’s Blue Community. We take small steps while seeding vegetables and plants, and it’s so interesting and joyful to mobilize around this project.»

 

«I am a villager, born and raised in a place where water is scarce, in the village of Yendouma. Even in neighboring villages such as Youga, Tuogou and Koundou, people have to walk more than 10 kilometers in search of water. I know the value and importance of water. I want to tell you that water is a precious resource that we must share carefully, because water is essential for the survival of people, plants, animals, birds, insects, etc. Water plays a vital role in many biological processes. Water plays a crucial role in many biological processes, such as digestion and blood circulation. Water is also a key element in many ecosystems, helping to maintain the natural balance of our planet. In my mother tongue, Dogoso, the word for water is “Di”. It stands for everything on this earth, because without “di” you cannot survive. This precious resource has its place in the Dogon cosmogony. We have “Nommo”, the god of water in Dogon society. In order to preserve water and ensure its availability for future generations, it is important to take measures to protect and conserve it. I suggest some ways to protect water in a pure and sacred environment. Avoid wasting water. We need to limit the way we use water: take shorter showers, install devices to reduce the flow of water, and use water more consciously in our lives. Of course, when we talk about people, we also mean schools. I will do everything I can to keep the water on our planet clean and I will tell others to do the same so that we can live in peace, like the children of the RadioChico Mali school.»

«Water is essential for all living things, especially clean drinking water for people in all parts of the world. Therefore, the Blue Community’s call to promote access to clean water cannot leave me indifferent. I am committed to working with this community for the noble cause it champions. Since November 2023, we have launched a series of activities in Conakry, the capital of Guinea: Member recruitment, community awareness campaigns through word of mouth, and planting. We have made a lasting impact by planting trees. And we will continue to do so to protect future generations from water scarcity caused by global warming.»

«Water is synonymous with peace and the joy of living. Because peace is when we are happy, and water is the basis of this joy of living for all beings. Through our activities with Souleymane on the importance of water and its rational management, we, the children of the RadioChico Mali school, through our voices, say yes, drinking water in a peaceful world is possible.»
