Azaaban

Azaaban Based in NYC, we promote the preservation of monuments, books, artifacts, music, art and languages of the Burkinabé culture. Azaaban means «You are Welcome» in the Kasem language of Burkina Faso.
(1)

You are welcome to a cross cultural dialogue with the goal of promoting mutual respect and kindness. We believe building personal connections is the path to peace between nations. To overcome suffering in the world, Azaaban seeks to reach people everywhere and transform the nature of human relations, replacing indifference with genuine concern, inaction with dynamism, selfishness with service to humanity. We promote compassion, love and reconnection with cultural heritage. The major vision of this organization is to highlight the importance of cultural legacy to the Burkinabé in diaspora and its role in interactions with Americans. We promote the preservation of monuments, books, artifacts, music, art and languages of the Burkinabé culture. We also recognize the fluid nature of culture in our personal identity and the importance of uniqueness in the melding of our societies. However, affirmation and recognition of aspects of ourselves in others can be an empowering experience, which is why so many African Americans seek to reconnect with their African roots.

Mission: To introduce, share and teach about the culture of Burkina Faso

Anderson Cooper Full Circle

Undocumented immigrants across the US are living in fear as Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers prepare to step up their previously postponed raids across the country Sunday, with plans to arrest thousands of migrant families.

Lincoln United Methodist Church in Chicago is offering sanctuary to undocumented immigrants. The pastor of that church, Emma Lozano, joins Full Circle to discuss how her congregation is preparing for the expected raids. What questions do you have for Lozano?

La foi en Dieu : l'espérance en Jésus-Christ le Seigneur

PSAUME (127 (128), 1-2, 3, 4-5)

HEUREUX QUI CRAINT LE SEIGNEUR !

Heureux qui craint le Seigneur
et marche selon ses voies !
Tu te nourriras du travail de tes mains :
Heureux es-tu ! À toi, le bonheur !

Ta femme sera dans ta maison
comme une vigne généreuse,
et tes fils, autour de la table,
comme des plants d’olivier.

Voilà comment sera béni
l’homme qui craint le Seigneur.
De Sion, que le Seigneur te bénisse !
Tu verras le bonheur de Jérusalem tous les jours de ta vie.

Le Médiateur du Faso

Madame Saran SEREME SERE accompagne plus de 400 associations de femmes pour leur marche contre le terrorisme dans notre pays.
A la sollicitude de la coordination nationale des associations des femmes du Burkina Faso, Madame Saran SEREME SERE , Médiateur du Faso, Défenseur des droits et intérêts des citoyens, accepte de porter leur parole auprès des plus hautes autorités du Burkina Faso .
Le Médiateur du Faso a entendu le cri de cœur des femmes , mères , sœurs et filles de nos Forces de Défense et de Sécurité (FDS) , qui ont sollicité son accompagnement pour organiser cette marche silencieuse , qui a rassemblé plusieurs milliers de femmes de toutes confessions religieuses et de conditions sociales pour dire « Non au terrorisme ! » qui endeuille des familles et la nation burkinabè entière.
Plus de quatre cents (400) associations participaient à cette marche à laquelle s’est jointe, la Première Dame et des épouses des membres du Gouvernement.
Sur l’itinéraire menant de la Place de la Nation au Rond-Point des Nations Unies, les femmes ont effectué une halte devant le bâtiment de l’Etat-major général des Armées, cible des terroristes en mars 2018 , pour chanter le Dytanié, l’hymne national, en signe de soutien total et indéfectible aux Forces de défense et de sécurité de notre pays.
Arrivée au Rond-Point des Nations Unies, un appel a été lancé à la communauté internationale pour une solidarité avec le Burkina Faso.
De retour à la Place de la Nation, des représentantes des différentes confessions religieuses, musulmans, protestants et catholiques ont dirigé des prières pour la paix dans notre pays.
La coordonnatrice nationale des associations des femmes a ensuite livré le message des femmes avant de remettre le document à madame Saran SEREME SERE pour transmettre aux autorités.
