Extractions: Contemporary Perspectives on East African Pastoralism The Pastoral Continuum: The Marginalization of Tradition in East Africa . Paul Spencer. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2000. Pp. 302. The recent severe drought in northern Kenya dramatically illustrates the need to broaden our understanding about African pastoralism. According to the United Nations World Food Program, nearly thirty-five percent of children under five are suffering from malnutrition in the region. The food aid agency describes Wajir District as virtually without cattle, and other sources have put the loss of cattle in the north as high as seventy percent. As donor agencies consider what they can do to alleviate the hunger and suffering of the millions affected by the catastrophe, they would do well to consult the two volumes discussed here. Spencer's impressive monograph is the product of more than forty years work by one of the doyens of British anthropology and The Poor are Not Us represents the discerning contributions of leading scholars in Europe and the United States ably integrated by its two editors. Both books speak to the related issues of poverty and development.

The man who independently plucked the fruits when he was hungry is become a farmer; and he who stood under a tree for shelter, a housekeeper. We now no longer camp as for a night, but have settled down on earth and forgotten heaven. Henry David Thoreau, Walden, 1847 Communities of present-day or former hunter-gatherers live in scattered communities across the world, although their precise numbers and status are very uncertain. Their often marginalised status and ethnolinguistic diversity has made it hard to articulate their case for land rights outside Australia and North America. Their preferred subsistence strategy, hunting, is often in direct conflict with conservation philosophies and protected areas often fall within their traditional hunting areas. This paper reviews their present situation and discusses some of the proposed strategies for incorporating them into more conventional natural resource management strategies. Policy conclusions Hunter-gatherer or foraging peoples dominated much of the world until recently, but the last few centuries have seen them marginalised almost everywhere. The rapid spread of both agriculture and livestock production has seen their traditional lands alienated and their main sources of subsistence decimated. However, just as there is an increasing realisation that pastoral peoples are efficient users of marginal environments and need to be protected from encroachment by outside interests, it is becoming apparent that foragers need similar assistance.

Extractions: Seminars held at CDS since March 1997 The four-part TV series about man and the necessity, impact and importance of freshwater resources brings the viewer, through spectacular photography, to such diverse areas of the world as the great floods of China, the holy Ganges, the drylands of Ethiopia, the raincoast of Norway, the canals of the Himalayas and the artificial rivers of the USA. Thematically the series ranges from a look into the fight for everyday fresh water on a local and global scale, to the taming of the powerful inherent forces of floods, rivers and water falls and the societal, ritual and religious importance of fresh water. The series, a large-scale project for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) and the CDS, has received very positive critical acclaim, and the critic for Bergens Tidende calls the series "grand and very impressive". Verdens Gang´s critic calls Terje Tvedt here The starting point for the conference was the need to exploit current findings and to assess in a critical way the role and impact of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and to develop typologies for studying the NGO channel in development aid. The conference did not wish to restrict its scope and perspective to the NGOs working in developing countries, but also bring in insights and concepts developed in the course of research on non-profit organisations and voluntary organisations in Western welfare societies. This was regarded as important, both in order to get a clearer idea about general and unique characteristics of NGOs in various countries at different times, and because historical "lessons" from Western societies have authorised NGO-politics in the past.

The two countries united as a one-party federal socialist republic in 1964, though Zanzibar has retained a considerable degree of autonomy. The one-party system ended in 1992 and a multi-party democracy was instituted. For 35 years Tanzania has been an island of peace in a troubled region. There are recurring differences between the mainland and Zanzibar which threaten the bonds between them. Economy Agricultural subsistence economy yet with much potential for development. The disastrous experimentation with socialism after independence led to nationalization of many businesses and collectivization of rural communities. The results were a bloated bureaucracy, deterioration of industry and the infrastructure, a serious reduction in living standards and drying up of international investment. During the 1990s the economy opened up resulting in steady improvement, but the reliance on foreign aid hampers entrepreneurial initiative.

Perimeter Church: GO Partners - Tanzania with AFMIN to provide training to indigenous pastors in having a well drilled among the datooga tribe as holistic in providing a platform for people with many http://perimeter-global.followers.net/10831
Extractions: Global Outreach has established 3 strategic partnerships in Africa. One is with the African Ministry Network (AFMIN), one is with World Mission Centre (WMC) and the third and newest partner is Emmanuel Tract Fellowship (ETF). The AFMIN partnership gives African pastors practical training in evangelism, discipleship, and church planting. As pastors commit to going through the training (2 sessions a year for 4 years) they are also committing to train at least ten other men utilizing the same material, thus impacting over 5000 church leaders. The WMC partnership provides training to local churches who have committed to take the Gospel to Unreached People Groups in their country. Participants are trained fulltime for 6 months and then move into the People Group seeking to plant a church. The WMC currently has placed Tanzanian missionaries among 7 of the least reach people groups in Tanzania. Our third and newest partner working on three fronts in the northern part of the country near Mount Kilimanjaro. These efforts concentrate on promoting unity among the existing church across denominational lines, mercy in helping the poorest of the poor and AIDS/HIV education and evangelism through teams that bring evangelistic films and AIDS/HIV education to remote areas of the country. Perimeter Church has partnered with AFMIN to provide training to indigenous pastors in Tanzania through their On-Ten program. The program selected 450 Tanzanian pastors and began training in April of 2000. AFMIN will administer the conferences and provide the training. Perimeter Church will provide speakers (ideally Neighborhood Congregation pastors), trainers, and will also provide financial resources for the conferences. This marks the fourth year of our partnership and we look forward to cooperating with AFMIN as the determine their strategy for the next four year curriculum and group of pastors.

Extractions: Thank you for your commitment to participate with World Mission Centre in God's agenda to bring the Gospel to bear on all nations. The following describes the advances made in Tanzania, a country identified in '93 - '95 with ten least unreached people groups: PROJECT FOCUS' OBJECTIVES At GCOWE 97, Pretoria, South Africa, under the sponsorship of World Mission Centre (WMC), church leaders challenged WMC to develop a strategy to plant churches in the people groups listed in "The 100 Least Reached People Groups of Southern AfricaIt Can Be Done." These groups were identified by WMC's research conducted '93-'95. As a result, Project Focus was launched with the objective to plant at least one church in each people group by 31 December 2000 and multiple churches by 2005 at least 1 church for every 3,000 people. Other objectives were to train national missionaries and "to provoke, enthuse, inspire and release" national churches in these Southern African countries to assume the responsibility to plant these churches. PROJECT FOCUS IN TANZANIA In July/August, I had the joy of leading a WMC team to Tanzania (Lydia accompanied me) where Project Focus, under the oversight of WMC's representative, a retired Anglican minister, is in full operation reaching the ten least reached people groups in that country. WMC's specific objectives were to check on the progress of Project Focus (How many churches have been planted since the inception of the strategy? Where should special effort be focused to reach people with the Gospel?), provide in-service training touching on some of the critical issues faced in church planting in the context of non-biblical religious concepts, and to encourage and challenge church leaders to press on with church planting and even go beyond their own borders.

That's the message from Mission Evangelism's Adrian Jones who just returned from preaching in the state of Kerala where his life was threatened. "A gang of men had sworn to kidnap me and kill me. So, when I got to the crusade site, it was surrounded by police and soldiers with machine guns. It was sort of a hair-raising time for the team." Jones says religious freedom in India may be changing. "The state of Kerala is getting ready to pass a no conversion law. As I understand it, if you go in there on a tourist visa they won't allow you to come in and preach at all. You can go in on a preaching visa if they will give that to you, but they're saying they won't give that to you either. So, the door is closing." 67-thousand people heard the Gospel nearly two-thousand people made professions of faith."
