In episode 120 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast I speak with Olowo-n'djo Tchala, Founder and CEO of Alaffia on cultivating beauty, equality, and empowerment in West Africa and around the globe through personal care products.Olowo-n'djo Tchala, founder and CEO of Alaffia, was born and raised in the village of Kaboli, Togo. Growing up and working to support his family, he witnessed firsthand the injustices and inequalities many of the women in his village faced daily. After moving to the United States and going to University, he felt the responsibility to fight the injustices that existed in West Africa.In 1996, Tchala met his partner Prairie Rose Hyde, who was invited to his village as an environmental volunteer in the Peace Corp. Inspired by a shared calling to do right by the world, Alaffia, a social enterprise, was born. With an understanding of the value of indigenous West African resources and sustainable business ideologies, the two launched Alaffia's first shea butter collective in 2003 and in 2004 established the Alaffia headquarters in Olympia, Washington.For the last nearly 20 years, Tchala's green and fair trade organization has created sustainable programs in West Africa that have improved the lives of over 250,000 individuals. Proceeds from the sale of Alaffia's beauty and personal care products are returned to communities in Africa, such as those in Togo and Ghana, to fund their multiple empowerment programs including Maternal Care, Reforestation, Regenerative Agriculture, Eyeglass, Bicycle and in 2021 Female Genital Mutilation Eradication.Since inception, they have built 16 schools, planted over 99,000 trees, provided more than 10,000 bicycles and 30,000 eyeglasses, donated school supplies to more than 37,000 students, and funded over 6,500 births. How does it work? Women's cooperatives in West Africa handcraft indigenous ingredients, such as unrefined shea butter and African black soap, using traditional African methods. Products are then finished at Alaffia's U.S. headquarters in Olympia, Washington. Proceeds from the sale of their personal care products are returned to communities in Africa, such as those in Togo and Ghana, to fund their community programs.Today, Alaffia is available in Whole Foods nationwide and continues to redefine the natural products industry through its values of Beauty, Equality and Empowerment, fair trade, and safe, efficacious hair, face and body care.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts hereHuge thanks to our Causeartist Partners - Check them out hereCheck out:ImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow

Chef and author Zoe Adjonyoh is one of the most vocal and visible advocates for Ghanaian food. This position made her uncomfortable for a long while. At the outset, as a third culture kid in London with an Irish mother and Ghanaian father, she even asked herself if she was appropriating her own culture. She only had a small repertoire of dishes she learned from her reticent dad. Eventually a trip to see relatives in Ghana cleared up the notion of one standardized cuisine and freed her to follow her own instincts as she created Zoe's Ghana Kitchen in the UK. And in doing so found a larger mission. Listen in to hear about the journey from accidental pop-up star to determined social justice advocate through food.

Episode 76: Eating Disorders. The malaria vaccine is announced by Dr Parker, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia are briefly discussed by Sophia, Jeffrey and Dr Arreaza. Introduction: Introducing the malaria vaccine (RTS,S)Written by Hector Arreaza, MD; read by Tana Parker, MD.  Today is November 26, 2021.Malaria is a devastating disease that continues to kill thousands of people every year around the world. Since the year 2000, there have been 1.5 billion cases of malaria and 7.6 million deaths. In 2019, there were 229 million new cases, and 409,000 deaths, mostly children under 5 years of age.Effective vaccines for many protozoal diseases are available for animals (for example, the vaccine against toxoplasmosis in sheep, babesiosis in cows, and more.) However, vaccines for protozoal disease in humans had not been widely available … until now. The RTS,S is a vaccine against malaria approved by the European Medicines Agency in July 2015 for babies at risk, and it was rolled out in pilot projects in Malawi, Ghana and Kenya in 2019.  In October 2021, the World Health Organization announced the recommendation of this anti-malaria vaccine. The trade name of this vaccine is Mosquirix®. The vaccination is recommended for children in sub-Saharan Africa and other regions with moderate to high transmission of Plasmodium falciparum, which is considered the deadliest parasite in humans.  The approved vaccine has shown low to moderate efficacy, preventing about 30% of severe malaria after 4 doses in children younger than five years old. Implementation of vaccination is not free from challenges, and it should be executed not as the solution for the disease, but as part of the solution, along with other efforts such as mosquito control, effective health care, and more.RTS,S is an add-on to continue the fight against malaria worldwide. Hopefully we can lighten the heavy burden of malaria for more than 87 countries that suffer the severe consequences of poor control of this devastating disease. This is Rio Bravo qWeek, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California.

Discussion with Hector Arreaza, MD.  This is not intended to be a comprehensive lecture on eating disorders. This episode is intended to give you basic information, hoping to motivate you keep learning about it. Let's start talking about eating disorders today, specifically anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. What is an eating disorder? An eating disorder is a disturbance of eating that interferes with health. As a reminder, health is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.” So, an eating disorder, in a wide context, is any eating pattern that is out of what is considered “normal”, and that variation in feeding causes health problems. But in general, when we talk about eating disorders in medicine, we refer to anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, but it includes also avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, binge eating disorder, night eating disorder, pica, and rumination disorder.  ANOREXIAIn general, anorexia is characterized by immoderate food restriction, inappropriate eating habits or rituals, obsession with having a thin figure or an irrational fear of weight gain as well as distorted body self-perception. There are 2 main subtypes of anorexia: restricting type vs binge-eating/purging type. Tell us the difference between anorexia restrictive type and binge eating-purging type.Anorexia, restrictive type is when weight loss is achieved by diet, fasting and/or excessive exercise, meanwhile the binge-eating/purging type entails eating binges followed by self-induced vomiting and/or using laxatives, enemas or diuretics. These patients will have intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat. They will have a distorted perception of body weight and shape or denial of the medical seriousness of one's low body weight.Anorexia nervosa is different than avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder. In anorexia, you have an altered perception of your body (“I'm fat”), but in avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, your perception of your body weight and shape is not abnormal. “I'm skinny, and I'm OK with that.” This is new information for me. I thought anorexia was present always when a patient refused to eat, whether you liked your body or not.Why do people develop eating disorders? There are so many reasons why people develop eating disorders. First, it can be psychological due to low self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy or failure, feeling of being out of control, response to change (i. e. puberty) or response to stress. Second, it can be due to interpersonal issues like having trouble with family and personal relationships, difficult expressing emotions or feelings, or even history of being teased based on size or weight. Lastly, it is the social and cultural norms that we grow up in. There are cultural pressures that glorify thinness and place value on obtaining the perfect body, narrow definitions of beauty that include women and men of specific body weights and shapes. Sometimes there is no reason. Some people just get obsessed with their weight and perceive themselves as “fat”. Effect of anorexia on different parts of the bodySince these patients are scared of gaining weight, how does it affect the entire body?Anorexia can affect multiple systems in our body. Just to name a few symptoms that it can manifest as: amenorrhea, infertility, constipation, dizziness, hypothermia, bradycardia, hypotension, dry skin and even hair loss. Starvation induces protein and fat catabolism that leads to loss of cellular volume and atrophy of the heart, brain, liver, intestines, kidneys, and muscles. Cardiac: It can decrease cardiac mass, decrease cardiac chamber volumes, cause myocardial fibrosis and pericardial effusion. These manifestations are reversible if the patient gains weight. Functionally, it can cause bradycardia due to increased parasympathetic activity, hypotension, decreased heart rate variability and QT prolongation on ECG. Lungs: shortness of breath due to weakened and wasting of the respiratory muscles, pneumothorax and aspiration pneumonia. GI system: it leads to gastroparesis with bloating, constipation, severe pancreatitis and mild transaminitis. Hematologic: anemia, leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. Skin manifestations include dry/scaly skin, hair loss, acne, hyperpigmentation and acrocyanosis. You can also find lanugo, which is a very thin, light colored hair on the face and body. It is thought that the lanugo is an adaptation from the body to keep it warm. Lanugo is common in patients with anorexia nervosa or other causes of malnourishment. That's why wearing coats in warm weather can be a silent sign of anorexia. Other subtle signs include social withdrawal, fidgeting (to burn calories), and always “eating” in private.  It is important to remember that all these manifestation that Jeffrey mentioned are not present with intermittent fasting because intermittent fasting is an intermittent restriction of food, the nutritional needs are met during the “feasting” periods after “fasting”. Some may argue that intermittent fasting may promote eating disorders, but I believe intermittent fasting is just an effective treatment for obesity.Treatment plan for anorexiaThere are several treatment options for these patients. We can refer them to nutritional rehabilitation where they can supervise meals. We can refer them to psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or motivational interviewing. There is also a drug called Olanzapine for this condition. Sometimes, patients may need admission to the hospital. I learned recently that UCLA has an Eating Disorder Program which includes inpatient services. Some centers are very specialized and include family therapy and group therapy. Listeners, you can continue to research about anorexia, it's is fascinating. The prevalence of anorexia in the US is estimated to be 0.6%[3]. BULIMIABy definition, bulimia nervosa is when a person binge eats and then uses certain behaviors to prevent weight gain. These behaviors may include self-induced vomiting, using laxatives or diuretics, exercising excessively, or fasting and having a restrictive diet. Signs and symptoms to look forA physical examination is key. On physical presentation, these people usually can have overweight or obesity. That's the main difference with anorexia. Anorexia: skinny people, bulimia: normal weight, overweight or obesity. Regardless of their weight, these patients are malnourished. They may lack some essential nutrients causing serious health consequences. That's why nutrition cannot be assessed by BMI only. Common signs they will present with will include tachycardia, hypotension (systolic blood pressure below 90), dry skin, and hair loss. If the person uses self-induced vomiting to prevent weight gain, they may have erosion of the dental enamel from all the acid that comes up when they vomit. There may also be scarring or calluses on the dorsum side of the hand from all the acid too. Their parotid glands, that are located on the side of the jaws will also be swollen, causing a sign known as chipmunk face of bulimia.From talking to this person and getting a detailed history, we will learn of the symptoms bulimia nervosa can cause. This will include lethargy and fatigue, irregular menstrual periods in a female, abdominal pain and bloating, and constipationThis disorder really does take a toll on the body. There's plenty of complications that come with it as well. Let's try to break it down by system. GI system has the most complications: esophageal tears from the vomiting called Mallory-Weiss syndrome, which will present with bloody vomits, a loss of gag reflex, esophageal dysmotility, abdominal pain and bloating, GERD, diarrhea and malabsorption of nutrients, fatty stools known as steatorrhea, colonic dysmotility leading to constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, rectal prolapse, and pancreatitis. Cardiac: serious complication is ipeac-induced myopathy, let's spend a little time on this. Ipecac is a syrup that someone with bulimia nervosa may use to make themselves vomit. If a person uses this syrup frequently or for a long amount of time, there is a component called emetine will accumulate in muscle, including cardiac muscle. If a person uses ipecac chronically, it can be detected in the urine for up to 60 days. This will damage the heart muscles or myocardium and lead to cardiomyopathy. It will present with symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, hypotension, tachycardia or bradycardia, T wave abnormalities on ECG, conduction delays, arrythmias, pericardial effusions, and even congestive heart failure. Cardiomyopathy may be irreversible. Renal system: dehydration, hypokalemia, hypochloremia, hyponatremia, and metabolic alkalosis. This could happen in patient who use diuretics as a purging mechanism. Endocrine system: Electrolytes and hormones imbalance. The endocrine system primarily impacts the reproductive and skeletal systems. Among 82 women treated for bulimia nervosa, menstrual irregularities were present in 45 percent at pretreatment and in 31 percent at 12-month follow-up. These irregularities may look like spotty or very light menstrual cycles. Cycles may be very erratic or completely absent. Skeletal system: osteopenia and osteoporosis are common with bulimia nervosa. Osteopenia means weaker and more brittle bones. Osteoporosis is more serious than osteopenia and can more easily result in fractures.The diagnosis of bulimia nervosa can usually be made clinically. And after the diagnosis with bulimia nervosa, the first step in helping them is always getting a full lab work up to see what systems to the body have been impacted. Treatment options include nutritional counseling, behavioral therapy, and even medications. If a person needs help connecting with someone that can help with this disorder, there are organizations that they can contact which will connect them with proper resources in their area. Organizations include the Academy for Eating Disorders and the National Eating Disorders Association. Bulimia nervosa is more prevalent in females than males in all age groups. In the US, adult prevalence is 1.0% and adolescent prevalence is 0.9%, with the median age of onset of 18 years. After comparing different age groups, we have seen the prevalence of bulimia nervosa has increased over time. Conclusion: Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are eating disorders that can have consequences on the health of our patients. We should know the difference between these two diseases and know the resources available in our community to assist these patients. The diagnosis may be done clinically, but you will need to order labs or imaging for a full assessment. Eating disorders are an example of the direct effect a mental illness can have in the body. In the specific case, anorexia and bulimia cause malnutrition. The treatment of these diseases requires a multidisciplinary team to treat the patient and the family as well.____________________________Conclusion: Now we conclude our episode number 76 “Eating Disorders.” We started this episode with exciting news about the new malaria vaccine, a step forward on our fight against malaria. Sophia, Jeffrey, and Dr Arreaza presented an interesting overview about anorexia and bulimia. They taught us that if a patient perceives him or herself as “fat”, but they are actually underweight, they may have anorexia. Patients with bulimia tend to have normal or above normal BMI but have periods of binging and purging. Be aware of these conditions while assessing your patients' nutritional status and treat appropriately or refer as needed. Even without trying, every night you go to bed being a little wiser.Thanks for listening to Rio Bravo qWeek.

This month marks religion reporter Peggy Fletcher Stack's 30th anniversary of covering The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for The Salt Lake Tribune. During that time, she has traveled the globe, journeying with prophets and interviewing apostles. She has written about divisive doctrines and inclusive gatherings, emerging trends and groundbreaking shifts, religious eras and “Mormon moments.” Mostly, though, she has written about people — people cherishing faith, people questioning faith, people rejecting faith. On this week's show, she shares highlights from her remarkable career and answers questions from our Patreon supporters. Listeners will get the scoop on her travels with Gordon Hinckley — including how she got into a meeting with the Latter-day Saint prophet and Ghana's president — her behind-the-scenes conversations with Marjorie Hinckley and apostle Dallin H. Oaks. They'll also get her take on what prompted church President Russell Nelson's remark about knowing her family, how she learned about apostle David Bednar's hair gel and many other stories.

From a young age, Kobina Ansah '08 was a budding entrepreneur, even before he knew what entrepreneurship really was. As a teenager he mowed neighbors lawns to earn extra spending cash. In college, he and his friends started a full service B&B for busy Cornell weekends (Air BnB eat your heart out!); "I remember feeling this great sense of satisfaction by identifying a client, identifying their needs, serving that need, and getting compensated for that." Furthermore, entrepreneurship is in Kobina's blood. His grandmother started one of the first daycare programs in Ghana, West Africa (visited by the Queen of England!), and his mother created Alta Spa in Ithaca, a place he and his brother worked and really helped conceptualize from the ground up. Today, Kobina's company COVERR (https://www.getcoverr.com/) provides financial loans to workers in the gig economy, people who have difficulty getting financial support from traditional lending institutions. As Armon Sadler so perfectly put it, Kobina is "a human who is serving humans-- who are serving humans." Read the episode transcript: https://cornell.box.com/s/iyl7d2igjqssdmej2q658nypbo2g5zx9.

Born in Ghana, West Africa, Kute is an inspirational speaker and transformational leader. He has been inspiring audiences around the world from the first time he spoke in front of 3,000 people at the age of 8, later speaking in over 300 venues by the time he was 18. He helps organizations develop authentic leadership and achieve extraordinary performance. He is the author of the bestselling book You. Are. The. One. and The Magic of Surrender. Today, he is highly sought out by major companies, seeking to redefine their paradigm for success, and inspire greatness. He is a next generation world leader out to awaken millions to “love” and “living” their inspired destiny. Memorable Quotes:  “I didn't think this was the book I was going to write, but I discovered this was the book seeking to be written.” “I soon realized nothing I could do was going to cure my mother, and I had to go through this process of surrendering.” “She wasn't attached to life, she wasn't attached to death, she was in a complete state of surrender.” “Surrender is the passage to freedom.” “Control is the master addiction, and it's also an illusion. If last year has taught us anything, it's taught us we are not as in control as we thought.” “It's a shift from ‘What do I want?' to ‘What is it that life wants to express or create through me?'” “One of the reasons people are afraid of telling the truth is because they are afraid they will have to do something about it.” “Take off the pressure of having to take action. Allow yourself to acknowledge the truth – no action needed. Just acknowledge it. Just be with it. You don't have to act. The willingness is all you need.” “What is it costing you to lie to yourself?” “Pain is a messenger in our life. Pain is showing us where we're not aligned.” What You'll Learn: How the word surrender came into Kute's life through his mother's story, why we have a difficult time accepting the word itself, and why this book changed Dr. Michelle Robin's life. This Episode Includes:  How this book surprised Kute. His last memories with his terminally ill mother and what he learned from her about the word surrender. The misconceptions about the word in our culture today – what it is, and what's not. What becomes of our life when we surrender to things happening around us – and how that brings us more joy in the end. What the word courage means to Kute. What Kute says to people when they ask, “How do I start to surrender?” Why playing a game of confusion allows us to avoid the act of surrendering. What Kute tells people when they ask how they will know if they are living their destiny. Why we must remember what life is really about. Three Takeaways from Today's Episode:  Ego isn't a thing – it's a process. The challenge is not our ego. It's the overidentification with ourselves. When we learn to stop identifying ego as a “thing” to get rid of and start accepting it's something we need to “shift” – we experience more freedom. As children, we are born free. Growing up, we fall into patterns – or become conditioned – to who we think we need to be so we can be loved. Is this really who you are or is this who you are conditioned? Spiritual practice isn't about yoga, meditating, or other things like it. Spiritual practice is telling yourself the truth.

Ken welcomes theologian, professor, former pastor, Bible teacher, and Co-Founder of THE PUBLIC, an organization that promotes anti-racism through education, advocacy, and action. It's purpose: so that their community will experience healing, equity, and justice for all its residents. A fellow graduate of the Moody Bible Institute, the two talk about backlash throughout history, up to the present day - from Reconstruction following the Civil War to school board meetings across America where history is suppressed, books prohibited. Anthony's trip to Israel triggered a deconstruction, a crisis of faith, not an abandonment but a fresh renewal. Anthony quotes white Southern Baptist Scholar Robert P. Jones (White Too Long) challenging the biblical assumptions of white superiority. They share thoughts on MLK's letter from a Birmingham jail. Anthony plans a trip in 2023 to Ghana to explore the beginnings of the slave trade in North America.

A quarter of Ghana's population lives along its 500km coastline. But devastating tidal waves and flooding are becoming more common. There have been three this year alone. Earlier this month, the latest tidal surge left more than 4000 people displaced in the Volta region. And people are starting to demand action from the government. So, what can be done to protect coastal communities? #AfricaDaily Host: Alan Kasujja (@kasujja) Guests: Kojo Akoto Boateng @kojoab Dzifa Gomashie @dzifa_gomashie Professor Kwesi Appeaning Addo

In episode 77 of The Great Women Artists Podcast, Katy Hessel interviews the fantastic artist, BISA BUTLER!!! [This episode is brought to you by Alighieri jewellery: www.alighieri.co.uk | use the code TGWA at checkout for 10% off!] One of the leading artists working today, Butler uses the medium of textile for her vivid and vibrant portraits of subjects that weave personal and historical narratives of Black life. From integrating members of her own family derived from old photographs to immortalising celebrated figures from Chadwick Boseman to Frederick Douglass, or those unknown from depression-era photographs, Butler's oeuvre aims to, in her words, “tell the story – the African American side – of American life”. Born and raised in New Jersey, where she still resides today, Butler studied for her BA at the prestigious Howard University – where she was taught under the AfriCobra group – and for an MA at Montclair State University, it was here when she first began using the medium of textiles after assembling together a portrait quilt for her grandmother. Working as a high art teacher for more than a decade, Butler worked on her fibre creations in school holidays and at the weekend, exhibiting at churches and community centres. And it is this medium which she has come to pioneer – not only by integrating portraits in such meticulous ways, but by fusing a range of fabrics in her work – from her father's homeland of Ghana, batiks from Nigeria, and prints from South Africa. Butler's rise has been astronomical. Having had her first solo exhibition in 2017, within just a few years she has had solo exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Katonah Museum of Art; made two covers for TIME Magazine, as well as a cover for New York Magazine featuring Questlove, and for those in Los Angeles, her work is currently and prominently on view at LACMA's hotly anticipated exhibition, Black American Portraits.

Whitney Osei-Akintaju was born in Kibi, Ghana, and migrated to the United States with her father when she was six years old. In her sophomore year of high school, she took a web design and multimedia class which sparked her passion for tech. In 2011, she began competing in pageants and was named Miss West Africa USA First Runner-Up. She was also Miss Ghana Tourism USA 2015. Her corporate career began in banking and finance working for companies like Bank of America. From there she moved into tech, working for Sage Software and Apple as a Technical Analyst. In 2017, while working at The 100 Companies as an engagement coordinator, she was pregnant with her first child, Cassidy. A busy mom, she searched for ways to purchase high-quality, authentic African grocery items online. Unable to find any, she decided to create one. Ethnic District is an e-commerce marketplace where African CPG brands can sell their products directly to customers, retail and wholesale. She started Ethnic District with just $80 and has grown it into a six-figure business organically as a solo entrepreneur. Companies like Warner Brothers Studios, CBS, and the Museum of Food and Drink have already used Ethnic District to source products for PR packages, events, and recipe boxes. She is an IfundWomen Entrepreneur of the Year Semifinalist in the Food and Beverage Category. With Ethnic District, Whitney hopes to bring more awareness to African products and make them more easily accessible in the western world. She wants to see African products become a part of mainstream American consumer culture. She also wants to provide tools and resources for makers in Africa to create products that meet international standards so that the continent can capture more market share in the CPG space.Photo courtesy of Whitney Osei-Akintaju.Follow Item 13 on social media: Instagram, Facebook and Twitter @item13podcastDon't forget to subscribe & leave us a review!Heritage Radio Network is a listener supported nonprofit podcast network.

Die deutschen Kolonien – SG #242

Was für eine komische Vorstellung: Nach Afrika fahren und dort die deutsche Sprache zu hören. Die europäischen Kulturen haben sich gerne in der ganzen Welt ausgebreitet. So auch Deutschland. Über die deutschen Kolonien spricht aber heute kaum noch jemand. Ich erzähle Dir etwas darüber. Was brauchte man, um eine Kolonie aufzubauen? Zunächst mal braucht man Schiffe, um überhaupt in die anderen Länder fahren zu können. Und natürlich politische Ziele, das eigene Land auszuweiten. Andere Länder wie England, Frankreich, Portugal und Spanien hatten beides und waren sehr erfolgreich mit ihren Kolonien. Deutschland nicht. Ein paar Versuche gab es, aber sie waren ohne Erfolg. Gut, eine einzige Kolonie schaffte es früh: 1683 wurde eine deutsche Festung in Ghana gebaut, um mit Gold und Sklaven zu handeln. Mehr passierte lange Zeit nicht. Gut, Deutschland war auch kein geeintes Land, sondern bestand aus vielen kleinen Einzelstaaten. Das war sicher ein Grund dafür. Erst 1871 wurde das Deutsche Reich gegründet - dazu gibt es mehr in der Slow German-Episode 172 zu Otto von Bismarck. In der Verfassung des Deutschen Reiches gab es nun auch einen Artikel über "die Kolonisation". Also war der politische Wille jetzt da. Schiffe hatte man mittlerweile auch. Reichskanzler Otto von Bismarck war aber nicht begeistert vom Gedanken der Kolonien. Die Kosten für so eine Kolonie würden oft den Nutzen übersteigen, sagte er. Und die deutsche Marine sei noch nicht weit genug entwickelt. Statt ganze Länder zu kolonialisieren, baute Deutschland einzelne kleine Stützpunkte auf. 1868 wurde ein deutsches Marine-Krankenhaus in Japan gebaut, es gab Stützpunkte in China und Japan für die deutschen Schiffe und Marinesoldaten. Später dann auch in Afrika. Im Deutschen Reich fanden immer mehr Menschen den Gedanken von deutschen Kolonien reizvoll. Es wurden Vereine gegründet, viele Menschen wollten auswandern. Nach der Reichsgründung im Jahr 1871 wanderten pro Jahr ungefähr 200.000 Menschen aus - viele von ihnen nach Amerika. Aber immerhin einige Zehntausend zogen auch in die neuen Kolonien in Afrika. 1884 gab es dann eine aus heutiger Sicht skurrile Konferenz in Berlin: Bei der "Kongo-Konferenz" verhandelten die USA, Deutschland und das Osmanische Reich darum, welche Bereiche Afrikas sie unter sich aufteilen könnten. Viel war nicht übrig, weil andere Länder sie schon kolonialisiert hatten. Der Rest wurde dann also verteilt. Die afrikanische Bevölkerung wurde nicht nach ihrer Meinung gefragt. Und so reisten einige Kolonialherren nach Afrika und nahmen sich das Land - entweder sie kauften es für wenig Geld oder sie nahmen es sich mit Gewalt. So lief es oft ab: Privatmenschen, das waren meistens Kaufleute, gingen ins Ausland. Dort bauten sie sich etwas auf und baten dann Deutschland um Schutz. Bismarck nannte die Kolonien daher auch lieber "Schutzgebiete". Deutsch-Südwestafrika war das heutige Namibia, Deutsch-Ostafrika war im heutigen Tansania, Burundi und Ruanda. Man schickte Polizisten und Beamte in die neuen Kolonien, baute Schulen, Kirchen und Kultureinrichtungen. Auch christliche Missionare waren unterwegs, um die Menschen in Afrika vom christlichen Glauben zu überzeugen. Was gab es noch? In Afrika noch Togo und Kamerun. Im Pazifik Deutsch-Neuguinea und Deutsch-Samoa. Dort baute man Kaffee, Kakao und Kokosnüsse an. In den Kolonien gab es nunmal viele Dinge, die es in Deutschland nicht gab - für den Handel waren sie also sehr interessant. Einen Gewinn brachten die Kolonien aber dennoch nicht. Trotzdem war 1884 das deutsche Kolonialreich nach dem britischen und französischen flächenmäßig das Größte. Ein geflügeltes Wort wurde der Ausspruch des späteren Kanzlers Bernhard von Bülow. Er forderte einen "Platz an der Sonne". Es wurden nur noch kleine Bereiche in China erworben und ein paar kleine Inseln. Ich möchte hier auch nicht alle Gebiete aufzählen, denn darum geht es nicht. Wichtiger ist, was eigentlich der Gedanke hinter diesen Kolonien war....
