4 Outlook en-USJune 29, 2018 en-USUS ambassador rearms support to African partnersit-ITByit-IT it-ITCapt. Olivia Cobiskeyit-ITU.S. Army Africa Public Aairs Oce en-USKIGALI, Rwanda en-US A United States en-US ambassador addressed an audience at the en-US en-US Shared Accord exercise plan at the Rwanen-US -en-US da Military Academy in Gako, Rwanda, en-US June 4-8.en-US Peter Vrooman, United States ambassaen-US -en-US dor to Rwanda, said the U.S. will continen-US -en-US en-US African partners to build a continent that en-US is safe, stable and secure.en-US The U.S. government, through both bien-US -en-US lateral and multilateral security assistance en-US and defense cooperation programs, has en-US en-US -en-US ed unwavering support to strengthen the en-US professionalization of African defense en-US forces, including Rwanda, Vrooman en-US said. This level of dedication to peaceen-US -en-US keeping, protecting the most vulnerable en-US populations in some of the most dangeren-US -en-US ous places in the world, mirrors the comen-US -en-US mitment of all the countries represented en-US here who are taking part in Shared Acen-US -en-US cord 2018.en-US In its sixth iteration, the Shared Accord en-US series began between the United States en-US Africa Command and the South Africa en-US National Defense Force in 2013. Malaen-US -en-US wi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Afrien-US -en-US ca hosted the events between 2014 and en-US 2017. However, Rwanda has committed en-US to hosting the exercise in 2019, making it en-US en-US -en-US cise two years in a row. en-US We are proud of the role we continue to en-US play in our partnership with Rwanda, the en-US fourth largest troop-contributing country en-US in the world with en-US one of the best en-US international repen-US -en-US utations of profesen-US-en-US sionalism in peaceen-US -en-US keeping missions, en-US Vrooman said. en-US The ambassador en-US added that Rwanen-US -en-US dans, who experienced their own genoen-US -en-US cide when more than 1 million Rwandans en-US were killed during a three-month period en-US in 1994, are uniquely suited to prepare en-US participants for future security instabilien-US -en-US ties and peacekeeping operations. en-US From what I know about the high stanen-US -en-US en-US that Rwanda puts into all its endeavors, en-US this initiative of the RDF should not take en-US anyone by surprise, Vrooman told the en-US more than 90 participants from 11 Afrien-US-en-US can partner nations, three western Allied en-US nations, international agencies, and the en-US en-US Accord 2018 planning exercise.en-US Major Gen. Innocent Kabandana, exeren-US -en-US cise director, agreed that Rwandas history en-US provides its people, including its soldiers, en-US a unique understanding of peacekeeping en-US operations. en-US Our history gave us the will to stand en-US en-US -en-US er again we speak en-US about when there en-US are atrocities, human en-US rights violations and en-US genocide being comen-US -en-US mitted elsewhere in en-US the world, said Kaen-US-en-US bandana, adding that en-US by sharing their stoen-US -en-US ry, Rwandans send a clear message. We en-US should not be bystanders when the need en-US calls for each of us or all of us to en-US stand and do something in the face of en-US gross violations of human rights.en-US The Rwanda Defense Force is also faen-US -en-US miliar with the United Nations Multidien-US -en-US mensional Integrated Stabilization Misen-US -en-US sion (MINUSCA) in the Central African en-US Republic having contributed troops to the en-US peacekeeping operation since its creation en-US in 2014. The MINUSCA mission will be en-US used as a model by the Shared Accord en-US 2018 plans team to build scenarios for the en-US command post exercise, said Kabandana. en-US Rwanda has two contingents, a continen-US -en-US gent of police and a level-two hospital, in en-US the Central African Republic. en-US Bangui today is not the same as the en-US Bangui of 2014. Rwanda was not a small en-US player in that, said Kabandana, referring en-US to Rwandas work in the Central African en-US Republic. en-US We are committed to do more. We en-US believe in international cooperation, re en-US-en-US gional cooperation, working together en-US to achieve a common goal of a peaceful en-US world and that peace starts with our counen-US -en-US try and our region. en-US Kabandana added that Rwanda provides en-US not only training facilities like the one at en-US its military academy, but also a stable and en-US secure environment to accommodate the en-US exercises. en-US Col. Brian Elliott, U.S. Army Africa en-US senior advisor for Shared Accord 2018, en-US agreed with the general. en-US Overall this has been a relatively easy en-US process, primarily because we have such en-US willing and able partners here in Rwanen-US -en-US da, Elliott said. I know there are still a en-US lot of tasks to accomplish, but I feel conen-US -en-US en-US we will complete all those things that are en-US required.en-USWe should not be bystanders when the en-US need calls for each of us or all of us en-US to stand and do something in the face of en-US gross violations of human rights.en-US--Major Gen. Innocent Kabandana en-USTheater professionals conduct youth camp en-USen-US en-US en-US dance classes.en-USCASERMA EDERLE en-US Soldiers Theatre played en-US host to the West End Stage workshop here for the second en-US year in a row.en-US Approximately 30 children ranging from 7 to 15 years en-US old had the chance to attend a weeklong workshop in en-US the facility June 18-23 with a West End Stage team from en-US London.en-US This year the planning phase was much easier since en-US we already ran the camp last year and already had a en-US system in place, said Jodi Giesbrecht, Child & Youth en-US Services instructional program specialist for SKIESen-US Unen-US-en-US limiteden-US who coordinated the event.en-US We received positive feedback from all families, so en-US we reserved the theater for this years camp as soon as en-US last years camp was over. We had many new children, en-US but some did attend the theater camp last year. This is en-US a very intense camp that has the youth singing, dancing, en-US en-US loved observing the amount of energy that goes on been-US -en-US tween the instructors and the students. It's beautiful to en-US watch the bond that occurs especially since there is such en-US an age gap between the students, she added.en-US The West End Stage team is made up of performers and en-US en-US We had such a fabulous week. Jodi [Giesbrecht] was a en-US fantastic host. The children are extremely lucky to have en-US someone like her providing them with opportunities like en-US this, said Hollie Taylor, acting teacher whose West End en-US credits include Matilda the Musical and Oliver!en-US We are used to working with children of all ages and en-US abilities, but the children on this base are very special. en-US They all have such beautiful, individual talents and peren-US -en-US sonalities and a great love of theater. The facilities at the en-US Soldiers Theatre are brilliant, and Jerry [Brees] who en-US runs the building provided us with everything we needen-US -en-US ed, she said.en-US Other tutors included Chrissy Cuttell (dance) who has en-US performed in Dirty Dancing and Les Miserables; en-US Matthew Johnston (singing), Titanic The Musical; and en-US Jon Kindon (stage management) who worked on techen-US -en-US nical teams for the National Theatre and Young Franen-US -en-US kenstein.en-US I think the biggest challenge for the children is the en-US amount of material we give them, said Taylor.en-US In fact, each student had to learn three group songs, all en-US fully staged, a complex dance routine and a shortened en-US version of a musical, all with their individual part to play.en-US We all were extremely proud of the students, for their en-US development throughout the week and the strength of en-US their performance on the day, Taylor said. en-US One participant, nine-year-old Erica Logan, liked what it-IT Story and photos byit-IT it-ITLaura Kreiderit-ITVMC Public Aairs Oce en-USshe experienced last en-US year and chose to aten-US -en-US tend again. She was en-US impressed, she said, en-US by how the instrucen-US -en-US tors taught how to en-US sing and talk loudly en-US without hurting our en-US throats. They were en-US nice, encouraging en-US and pushed us to en-US our best.en-US Brees, director of en-US Soldiers Theatre, en-US started planning en-US childrens musical en-US productions at the en-US theater in 2014 with en-US The Little Mermaid. Since then, interest for theater en-US within the Vicenza Military Community has continued en-US to grow; about 55 children participated in the most reen-US -en-US cent musical, Honk! Jr., directed by Brees.en-US Arianna Rockel, 10, who was in that production, aten-US -en-US en-US en-US said. Since then, I have been in some musicals, 'Shrek en-US Jr.' and 'Honk!
