Guinness World Record – Changing the World in Zambia

Skjermbilde 2012-09-01 kl. 14.58.19

Together with a lot of friends, Rune Kalland and Sondre Mikal Knutsen are arranging a Guinness world record trial in September. WHY??

To make a long story short: Rune went to Zambia some years back. He volunteered teaching youths in Zambia to play football. He was very concerned because many of them dropped out of school – mostly because they lack money to pay school tuition fees, as in Kenya. He wanted to do something, and so he did; he started the»Back to School Program» and challenged friends here in Norway to join in so that they could help finance school tuition fees for more children. Last year, they sponsored more than 30 children and youths!

Then he saw me on TV, and I guess he was inspired because of my young age. He wanted to do more. However, his situation was familiar to the situation I faced some years back: No NGO´s (Non Governmental Organizations) could help him. He needed an official registered bank account, a registered NGO, a web site, a brand, accountings and something bigger than himself etc.

When Prospera Network finally helped me start Aid in Action and get all the great organization-facilities we have today, I thought it would be good to share all the facilities with more people! When Rune called me and explained his situation, we met, discussed some more, and agreed that he could join Aid in Action and become a project leader like I am for our projects in Kenya.

I just love that we can change the world in different ways. He and his friends like to play futsal (indoor football without shoes). That´s why they involve a lot of people and combine the passion for helping youths in Zambia with a Guinnes World Record try.

Their goal with the Record is to get funds for a youth Center in Zambia – were they will help youths to get jobs etc. The total price is about 150 000 NOK (25 000 USD).

This is their account for the Project: 9680.39.62194

I wish them good luck!
