A Sterling Performance At The United Nations

A Sterling Performance At The United Nations

Nu-Vision High School’s learners raked in certificates at the Model United Nations session held in July 2018. The annual event dubbed Sub-Saharan Africa Model United Nations (SAIMUN), took place on 1st through 6th of July at one of the only four UN headquarters in Gigiri, Nairobi.

Learners had the opportunity to assume UN delegate avatar via which each of the individuals in the team of 23 presented a position paper, argued their nation’s position and contributed to the publication of a UN resolution in the committees they represented. Our delegation was assigned the following committees and topics:

United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) –SDG (IV) Education for refugees

Economic and Socio-Cultural Committee (ECOSOC) – Wind farming in Eastern Africa with the aim of generating green energy as an alternative source

Social, Cultural and Humanitarian Committee (SOCHUM) – Are the Geneva Conventions enough to mitigate and end recruitment of child combatants?

Disarmament and Security Committee (DISEC) – Territorial sovereignty and foreign military occupation

Each learner was assigned a country for which they would be delegates in the above committees. Our delegates were to assume national representation as foreign affairs representatives of Latvia, Suriname, Laos, Slovakia and East Timor.

Apart from intellectuality and diplomatic assignments our learners got the rare and valuable opportunity to meet delegates from various countries, work with them, be exposed to varied cultures while showcasing Rwandan culture and live the life of a diplomat through a working week.

The event, whose opening ceremony was tele-addressed by the UN SecretaryGeneral, Antonio Guterres ended on 6th July with the learners socializing with various ambassadors from varied diplomatic missions in the world.
