Instead of stigmatising poverty and focusing on problems, we hope that aid organisations will respond by showing the positive outcomes of development programmes too.”Radi-Aid Research is a collaboration project between SAIH and the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia. Radi-Aid is an annual campaign created by SAIH that has the goal of challenging perceptions around poverty and development, and change how fundraising campaigns communicate. A study that looks at how aid communication is perceived in African countries has revealed that aid recipients would like to see more diversity as well as dignity and positivity, in campaigns.The Radi-Aid Research study involved 74 people from 12 focus groups in aid-receiving communities, in Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. They discussed imagery from campaigns by Amnesty International, Care International, Cordaid, The Disasters Emergency Committee, Dubai Cares, Oxfam, Save the Children, Unicef and War Child, and their perceptions of these campaigns and other visual communications.Findings from the study, which was carried out in collaboration with the University of East Anglia, include:• There is a need for aid communication to show more diversity in terms of age and race.• Respondents acknowledge that aid communication is complex, with no single solution.• It is important that respect and dignity is preserved in the portrayal of people in aid communication.• The majority of respondents thought the images in adverts offer an accurate representation of the situation in Africa. Campaigns often depict black children in need the study found, and several of the respondents wished that these stories could be complemented by showing children of other colours or backgrounds, or black doctors, professors or aid workers. They also said they would like to see positive outcomes of programmes shown.Beathe Øgård, president of The Norwegian Students’ and Academics’ International Assistance Fund (SAIH), said:“Why not try to create a sense of hope or provide inspiration to the viewer, instead of primarily provoking feelings of despair? The participants in this study are quite adamant about their wish for more diverse portrayals of their continent.”“Several of the findings support issues Radi-Aid has been highlighting through its campaign since 2012 – that is, the typical image INGOs show of Africa is often a demeaning and dehumanising one, and the humans portrayed are more than what these images offer. Aid communication still needs to move away from presenting the single story.”The report’s lead author David Girling, of UEA’s School of International Development, said: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

However, the bench said that it will simply adjourn the matter, without expressing anything. The matter has been accordingly posted to April 30.Dave expressed the hope that a positive result will come out of the Full Court decision. He also thanked Goel for undertaking the efforts to convey the suggestions of the Supreme Court to the Gujarat High Court.”It is an unenviable task. A difficult task”, Justice Kaul commented about Goel’s efforts.Dave also said that it was remarkable that many persons of eminence like Senior Advocates Arvind P Datar, Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi, P H Parekh etc were involved in pursing Oza’s matter to find a resolution.On the last hearing date, March 10, the top court had asked if the High Court can suspend the revocation of Oza’s senior designation for a brief period, during which his petition in the Supreme Court will remain pending so that his conduct can be monitored.”We are keeping both the writ petition (against the withdrawal of the gown) and the contempt matter pending. After whatever period we fix, you may be given your gown back for sometime as an interim measure, during which we will monitor your conduct. Then the High Court can take a call whether he is worthy of this relaxation or not”, said Justice S. K. Kaul had suggested.It was in July last year that the Gujarat High Court revoked the senior designation of Oza, after he made sharp remarks against the administration of Registry as the President of the High Court Bar Association. The Full Court recalled the decision taken in 1999 to confer senior designation on Oza.Later, in October, the High Court held that his remarks scandalized the court and found him guilty of criminal contempt of court. A division bench of Justices Sonia Gokani and NV Anjaria imposed a fine of Rs. 2,000 and punishment till rising of the Court on Advocate Yatin Oza,for making “scurrilous remarks” against High Court and its Registry, during a live press conference on Facebook.The High Court rejected the unconditional apology tendered by Oza as “lacking in bonafides”.Following that, Oza approached the Supreme Court, challenging the Full Court decision taking away his senior gown and also the contempt verdict. Before the Supreme Court also, Oza expressed unconditional apology for his remarks.”I have absolutely no excuse. What I did was unpardonable. I am obliged for Your Lordships’ grace. I am short of words to express this “, pleaded Oza before the Supreme Court. Next Story

Facebook21Tweet0Pin1Submitted by Joint Animal ServicesJoint Animal Services we all think about the temperature and what we need to keep ourselves warm but here are a few things we also need to be aware of to keep our pets safe.Cats and dogs should stay indoors during cold weather, but be aware that heat sources such as fireplaces and space heaters can burn pets. Make sure your space heaters are pet-proofed. Provide plenty of fresh water. When we heat our homes it can dry out the air inside making our pets susceptible to dehydration.Don’t let pets drink water in driveways and roadways. It might have antifreeze which can be deadly, even in small amounts. If it’s icy outside, wipe your dog’s feet after walks to remove chemicals or salt that might they might have walked through which can irritate foot pads.Know your pet’s limits. Like people, cats and dogs can get frostbite and hypothermia if left outdoors for too long. Consider a sweater or coat for short haired dogs while outside.Do you have an emergency kit? Remember to include your pet’s needs including food, water and any medications they may need to get them through for up to 5 days.Contact your veterinarian if you notice any lack of energy or appetite. Pets get sick, too!Featured photo credit: Candra Burns
