An Interview with Angelina Jolie
News Stories, 21 October 2002

Angelina Jolie detonating a landmine in Cambodia.
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie discusses her time in Cambodia and the effects of landmines there as well as the impact the trip had on her personally. She is willing to share her experiences with the world to help raise awareness for mine action.*
By Jenny Lange, MAIC
Jenny Lange (JL): What first made you aware of the landmine situation around the world?
Ms. Angelina Jolie (AJ): When I went to Cambodia for work, I was suddenly in a country where I saw it was a very big problem. We were restricted to where we could move or walk because of landmines.
JL: What about Cambodia pulled your attention away from the movie and towards Cambodia and its people?
AJ: I think it’s a lot of things like knowing the history of the place, [and] having not been taught at school. I felt I should have been taught about the landmine problem. It made me suddenly realise certain things about the world and how much I had to learn, like the history of the people. They are so warm and great and spirited; they are such survivors. I think they are such amazing people.
JL: Did you approach UNHCR, or did they approach you after your visit to Cambodia?
AJ: I approached UNHCR because I believe in what the United Nations is attempting to do, … and I support the United Nations. I read about the different chapters and UNHCR was the most [appealing] because I believe refugees are the most vulnerable people in the world. They are affected by everything, including landmines. They are vulnerable to everything.
JL: Through your position at UNHCR, what exactly are you hoping to accomplish?
AJ: Awareness [of] the plight of these people. I think they should be commended for what they have survived, not looked down upon. I think people are often uncomfortable and don’t like the idea. They seem to shy away because of what it means to them. I think these are really amazing people that are not really understood. Also, I personally just wanted to meet these people around the world and know them, because they are my heroes, and I think they are wonderful people.
JL: I recently read that you were able to personally detonate a landmine. Is this true?
AJ: I went with HALO, which is a great organisation. We were there in Cambodia. We were … in one field they were demining [where] they had found three different mines. At the end of each day they explode them, and they let me explode one. It was a great feeling because you know something like that, if HALO hadn’t been there and if you weren’t detonating it, that it might otherwise be hurting someone, and you are getting rid of something that could be otherwise dangerous or deadly. So it is a great feeling.
JL: Are you able to describe personally the effect that landmines had on victims in Cambodia, physically, psychologically and economically?
AJ: I think it’s difficult to describe because these people are victims of such horror, and yet they are so strong, that they don’t seem like victims. So, I think, you don’t want to shout that they are victims. We should make a point that they don’t have to go through this, because they are such survivors. But certainly it affects them in so many ways. There’s an organisation – CVD, Cambodia Vision and Development – that works with vulnerable people; most of them are landmine victims. If you can imagine the area and the land in Cambodia, I mean there are hardly any roads in big parts of the country. The roads they have, in the rainy season, become just mud. So, if you’re somebody that has just one leg, or blind with no arms and you have children and you’re trying to work, and earn some money, and take care of your home, it’s hard enough to be a parent and do all of that normally. It seems impossible and probably would be impossible without the help of a lot of these organisations. Organisations like CVD put a lot of these people together so they can work in a group. They are amazing. Then you go to some places where it’s so hard for them to access limbs, depending on where they are in the country. And the young children, if they survive and they have lost a limb, their bodies are still growing so they have to go back quite often. They don’t have cars or local hospitals. It’s a big trek to go in and find somebody who will volunteer to refit you and shave the bone down. They are going to have that their whole life because they are growing. It’s a really horrible thing.
JL: While you were in Cambodia, or Pakistan or Africa, did you ever personally feel in danger because of landmines or any other issues?
AJ: Well, landmines specifically would be Cambodia. Yeah, I went off into certain areas where you were just told that nothing had exploded in this area therefore it’s not considered a high-risk area, but you along with everybody else stay on a very clear path that has already been walked. You don’t stray from it. You know in the middle of the night when I had to go use the bathroom in the bushes and was not really sure where the path was. It’s crazy the thought that you really don’t know, and for people to live like that all the time. There were times when we would go wandering off in Cambodia and had to be extremely careful where we were going and to know the area. For anybody that works in any kind of demining or any kind of humanitarian aid work, there is danger and it’s always a high-risk area.
JL: I am sure you met many influential people and heard many amazing stories. Are there any of these experiences that you would like to share?
AJ: There are so many. Really it’s just person after person in every different country that has a life that I can’t even imagine and has gone through horror that I can’t even imagine. And yet, in every country, every family was more generous than I have met in other countries with their time or whatever they had. Trying to find food or tea or something and give you a smile, and [they] are so grateful for what they had left – an unbroken spirit. And that was remarkable for me that that was not specific to one place or one person. That continues to be the majority of these people out there. For whatever reason, I don’t know why, but they’ve learnt something in their suffering and struggle that we have lost touch with.
JL: What do you feel being an Ambassador for UNHCR has done for the organisations?
AJ: I hope it has brought more awareness. That’s all I can hope for. I know what it’s done for me, but I hope it has brought more awareness. I feel it has because people tend to ask me questions, and I have received a lot of letters from young people talking about the things they are doing to make a difference. And that’s been a very nice thing because I didn’t get letters like that before. The most important thing, or the thing I think I accomplished most was going to these places and sitting down with the families for about an hour, and I think … what matters most of all is that you go out of your way to sit down with people and listen to their stories and talk with them and show them somebody cares and is listening.
JL: Do you have any plans for further involvement with other humanitarian programmes, or more specifically landmine organisations?
AJ: Yes, with landmines, well the film I just finished deals with a lot of things but it also deals with landmines, which has been great, a very interesting thing to have the whole crew listening about, the effects of landmines. But yes, I certainly will. We were just in Namibia, and I am more aware of that area. That area is … changing and I don’t know if we will understand more about the landmine situation there. And in Afghanistan, I’m sure with UNHCR moving back in there will be a lot they will be dealing with, and they will be dealing with working hand in hand with deminers. And in Cambodia, I have … funded some schools and I plan to move to Cambodia, and have a house there and a place to live. So all of that has to be demined. The schools have already been demined. The land will have to be demined. There’s also organisations too, like the Campaign to Ban Landmines. I’ve met with Jody Williams, and spent some time with her, we’ve had an evening at the house to raise awareness. There’s a lot to do. Hopefully it will stop all the manufacturing and everybody will sign off, because that’s what has to happen before anything.
JL: Do you have any future plans with UNHCR?
AJ: I will be in Washington for Refugee Week, and then it looks like I’m off to South America.

Q&A: A school in the US town of Decatur offers refugees a top education
News Stories, 28 July 2009

-
© International Community School
Students at the International Community School, in Decatur, Georgia.
DECATUR, United States, July 28 (UNHCR) – The publically funded International Community School is located in the city of Decatur in Dekalb County, Georgia, one of the largest refugee resettlement areas in the United States. It was set up in 2002 to provide a top international primary education to a mix of US-born local children and young refugees and immigrants. One of the pupils, 4th Grader Genevieve Wilson from Liberia, won first prize this year in a UNHCR World Refugee Day poster contest sponsored by Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie. UNHCR Public Information Intern Nicole Pham spoke with Laurent Ditmann, a native of France and principal of the school.
What makes ICS unique?
What makes ICS very special is this idea that we maintain something we call intentional diversity. We have ethnic, national, linguistic, religious and socio-economic diversity. We want to recognize each individual child. One thing that is very specific to ICS – I call it the ICS way – is the individual touch. No two kids are alike and we want to recognize that. The purpose of this is to create a different type of community. I would say the most important word in the name of our school is community.
What distinguishes ICS from the other schools in the area?
What we offer is a public, free tuition environment where refugees are not segregated, ostracized and asked to ‘assimilate’ in very little time without receiving the tools necessary for acculturation. ICS offers a balanced mix of American-born children and refugee children in which students learn from each other and feel included and respected in the context of a larger community.
Tell us a bit more about the student population.
We have 395 students in kindergarten through 6th Grade, with three sections per grade level. The students come mostly from the direct vicinity of the school: Decatur, Avondale and Clarkston, which is the centre of the refugee population of Georgia with around 30,000 refugees. We currently have about 35 nations represented. Over the years, we’ve served students from well over 50 nations. Currently, the largest group is from East Africa, mainly Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, and West Africa – we have a sizeable group from Liberia as well as Sierra Leone. We have a fairly substantial group from Burundi as well as from Myanmar.
How did the school come into existence?
The school was created because a group of people, about 10 years ago, felt that the local school system did not address the needs of survivors of war, these traumatized children. They decided to create a school where the communities would mix in order to create a space where all cultures would be valued, studied, discussed, and people could learn from each other.
What is it like for the refugee children who have just arrived at ICS?
Refugee children are not set aside. Of course there are kids who come to the school speaking little or no English, so we have a quite intensive English for Speakers of Other Languages programme. All other classes are taken with the rest of their schoolmates because we want them to be a part of the community and interact constantly with the other kids. We acknowledge that refugee children, because of the trauma they may have experienced, need some special attention. So, for instance, if they need additional mental health support, we have a counsellor who takes care of that. We also have a family outreach person who will go into homes of refugee families and address cultural issues.
What qualities do you look for in your teachers?
We hire people who have a strong commitment to the place . . . The teachers must have, in one form or another, international experience. The diversity of the student body is reflected in the diversity of the staff. We have people from many different countries, including Bosnia [and Herzegovina], Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, France, and more. The most important thing is that they need to have a certain commitment to intellectual and ethical values. We believe that as adults we create an environment in which the kids have to flourish. So if we don’t create the right environment, the kids won’t learn.
Has the Decatur community been supportive of your school?
Decatur, as well as Clarkston and Avondale, has been extremely supportive. I would say that anybody who hears of our school tends to become engaged in one way or another. People are very receptive to what we do and want to pitch in and participate because they see that we are a lot more than just a school.
What does ICS give back to the community?
I think community is a two-way street and, first of all, I should say that we’ve been given a lot by organizations, corporations and individuals. I think that what we give in return, hopefully, is a model. We are a model for community building and we want to help other organizations, including non-profits, corporations, etcetera, who are looking for a different way of “doing diversity,” for lack of a better phrase, to create a community. What we offer is a very pragmatic model. What we’re trying to show people is that what we do, anyone can do, regardless of where you are and what your function is.

Angelina Jolie Is The Latest Star To Rock Saint Laurent
By Hedi Slimane
———————————————–
We’re used to seeing Angelina Jolie work her signature sophisticated style in chic but grown up gowns and shifts from designers like L’Wren Scott and Giorgio Armani. So we took a double take when we clocked Angie wearing this floor skimming dress and long cape from the Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2013 finale. Sporting the witchy two-piece at the 4th Annual Women of The World Summit in New York last night, the soon to be Mrs Jolie-Pitt most certainly upped her cool credentials.
-
Offering a low key, bohemian vibe, the Saint Laurent chocolate brown chiffon dress with a lace-up front, embellished with tassels teamed with the black, flowing chiffon cape was a clear departure for Angelina, although the palette is very much suited to her tastes – she’s often been pictured in earthy browns and taupes. But Hedi Slimane’s 70s rock star look brings a new fashion forward edge to Angie’s wardrobe.
Indeed this has been a great week for Mr Slimane, with Angie’s sartorial patronage coming hot on the heels of Kate Moss working his chic fringed suede jacket and countless A-listers sporting his debut It-bag for the Saint Laurent label, the Duffle.
-
So could this be the beginning of a beautiful ‘A-lister/Designer’ relationship? Might we be seeing Angelina in more pieces from Saint Laurent? Perhaps a sharp tuxedo or a grungey slip from Hedi’s new A/W 2013-14 collection? Or could we be spotting Angie on Hedi’s front row come next Paris Fashion Week? If we stretch our imaginations, might we also read that Angelina’s choice of Slimane as designer could point to a closer collaboration between the two – especially as we’ve heard Angie is in the market for a wedding dress? We can but dream!

Jennifer Aniston’s wedding hell
=========================
It all kicks off with Jennifer Aniston’s dad after she reveals her brother isn’t invited
-
It should be an exciting 
time for her, but Jennifer Aniston’s facing family dramas ahead of her imminent wedding to Justin Theroux.
The actress, 44, has caused a huge row after telling her dad John Aniston that her half-brother Alex, 23, is NFI (Not Freaking Invited) to her big day.
An insider tells Now: ‘Jen really cares for Alex but as you’d expect with siblings who have over 20 years between them, they’ve got nothing in common.’
Alex, or 
’AJ’ as he calls himself, is John’s son with his second wife Sherry.
He has minimal contact with his famous sister, but John, 79, is still said to be ‘really disappointed’ by Jennifer’s ‘snub’.
‘I don’t think AJ will care at 
all about his sister’s wedding,’ says our source.
‘He’s embraced 
a crazy boho lifestyle to distance himself from his famous family, so he won’t shed a 
tear over missing it.
‘Jen will explain that she wants to keep her wedding small with only immediate relatives.
‘But that hasn’t stopped it all kicking 
off – her dad isn’t happy.

‘He’s really disappointed.’

We find out what’s new with 2012’s Women of Impact
As the 2013 Women in the World Summit kicks off in New York City, we caught up with last year’s Women of Impact award winners. True to form, they are continuing their ceaseless efforts to improve the lives of women in communities around the globe.

Still saving Somalis—and writing books:
After Dr. Hawa Abdi received her Women of Impact award last year, violence in Somalia forced the temporary closure of the 90,000-person camp she runs in the countryside for internally displaced people. Camp residents fled to safety in Mogadishu, where Dr. Abdi’s foundation set up a new free healthcare clinic to serve them. In the last year she as been showered with additional honors including the John Jay Medal for Justice, the Social Humanitarian Award and the Vital Voices Global Leadership Award. April 2, 2013 marks the launch of her memoir, Keeping Hope Alive: One Woman—90,000 Lives Changed, co-written with Sarah J. Robbins.

Her first graduating class:
Back in 2009, Dr. Kakenya Ntaiya—who as a child in Kenya persuaded her father to let her attend school and ended up with a Ph.D.—opened a boarding school for underprivileged Maasai girls. This year, the first class of 8th-graders will graduate and head to high school. Ntaiya and staff are working to get scholarships for all 19 grads so they can continue their education. There are also camp programs twice a year, to reach even more girls—more than 250 so far—and teach them about women’s health, leadership skills, self-defense, and the dangers of female genital cutting.The peace lady:
Leymah Gbowee, the Nobel peace prize winner who led a women’s movement to halt Liberia’s civil war, continues to spread her message about women’s power to change the world. She headed Liberia’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission until late 2012, when she stepped down because of differences in opinion on the appropriate way to promote national healing, a cause to which she remains devoted. She travels around the world to advocate for women’s rights and working for peace.

Malala Yousafzai daughter of UN: Ban Ki-moon
========================================
Dailybhaskar.com | Apr 06, 2013, 16:11PM IST

New York: Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai- who was shot by Taliban for raising her voice for girl’s education last year- has announced her first donation for educating 40 girls with the support of Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie in New York during the Word Summit.

The United Nations General Secretary Ban-Ki-moon was present during the ceremony and has expressed hope in her who can fight for the rights of girl’s education worldwide.

While addressing a large number of audiences, he called the teenage girl a ‘Symbol of Hope’ and a ‘daughter of United Nations’.

In the ceremony, 16 year-old Malala said that it was the happiest moment of her life. She wants to be a leader and volunteer herself to fight for the rights of the girls as well the people all across the world.

The grant of USD 45,000 will be donated to an unnamed organisation in Swat Valley in Pakistan to educate girls aged between 5 and 12.

The foundation is run by a board of trustees, including Malala and her family, with the support of the Vital Voices Global Partnership, founded by Hilary Clinton.

Malala Yousafzai has used her education for the purpose of the rights of girl’s education very effectively. The young girl has shown the world that knowledge is not only acquired for one’s self-interest, instead, it can be effectively put to use to bring about a change in the society.

Knox is da man

Life is so not fair is it , here we have a beautiful mother with her beautiful children who have some seriously good genes in them damn it man why didnt I have Brad & Anglina as my parents.
( sorry mum & dad if you are reading this).

Jessica Alba is out again in her two peice bikini with her freeloader of a husband and Aniston is out buying more furniture for house’s she buys & sells but doesnt actually live in them with HER freeloader of a partner. Question is are these women what we call independant women who have KEPT MEN by any chance?

@TAM.SIN:

isn’t it though; no co-dependecy issues. They are individually dynamic and take care of their humanitarian and profesional obligations and re-unite as the most gorgeous and loving family unit. I agree………..perfect balance. All good relationship are founded on two principles: Trust and Respect. And they are resplendent in this regard. Finally you see the light ………..see you got banned again, Hag………….new spelling yet again.

To-GodBless @ 04/06/2013 at 10:28 am

@GodBless the answer to your question is they are Not two independant women but two women who will do anything to make a quick buck to keep their unemployed men happy, as they both are big big media hoores any way. Didnt you know most of the paps are on their retainer.

@GodBless:

I don’t think it is fair to call him a freeloader. I had no idea who he was. I found out he graduated from Yale, and his father is Michael Warren (who played Bobby Hill on Hill Street Blues).. I loved that show. Funny I never see them with his family. But he has 2 sister and a brother.

Anyway not a fan, but it was interesting to lean that he was connected to someone I watched on Television. I think he has produced some TV shows. but I’d have to look that up. Besides Jessica is not burning up the big screen or small screen. So they actually seem to be a good match.

@Dawne Amen to that, but you do know you are teaching to the person that never will repent, who actually is an diehard Aniston fan is that is an Unrepentant Fenian Bas,tard.

@Busted, in other words the Two educated freeloaders actually have something in common, both come from well off families, but don’t have any connection with their families as they are never seen with their partners or them and both live of their partners earnings. I guess thats what real men do in Hollywood.
I Concede as far as Alba is concerned thanks for big mercies she isn’t on the big or small screen but a shame that Aniston isn’t taking a hint and give both screens a miss. oh well you cant have everything in life can you.

I can’t get my head around this how come TMZ were the first people to break Halle Berry’s pregnancy news does that mean they were able to get their hands on her pregnancy test kit when they went through her dumpsters, because there is no other way that I can think of them knowing before her actual family did or may be she just phoned them up her self. My bad I forgot they were the first to report Gabriel’s fight with Oliver werent they so I guess it was an inside job.

To-GodBless @ 04/06/2013 at 11:05 am

@GodBless dont forget you can never know the sex of the child in 3 month long that doesnt add up Tmz are talking out of their backs again. It one thing confirming the baby news but its another think knowing about the sex of the child in so early stages, I guess the writer of the Tmz article must be a man LMAO.

@ To-GodBless
LOL that’s true I didn’t think of that, also I will add Olivier to the list of freeloaders yes he’s an actor but she is the $$$$ mama, he’s another one that you don’t see him or Halle with their family around them , every one is so unlike Brad & Angelina who actually have their parents with them & extended families in holidays or any given chance.

What’s up with these hollywood couples don’t they have families to spend time with as all you see is they spend money taking friends on holidays, spend special days like birthdays& thanks giving’s with other people than their own flesh and blood.

Wonder where the other kids were.

@SOURCE: and nobody cares. LoL

here’s hopin’ halle’s baby is normal after 2 years.

Tam. Sin is banned? LoL @mm12: he looks so much like Angelina. He is cuter and prettier than shiloh who unfortunatly looks more like Brad.

@GodBless:

I don’t know if his family is well off. His father was on a TV years ago. I don’t know about his mother. Going to a school like Yale doesn’t mean your family is super rich.. well usually yes…lol

but I don’t have anything against Alba. I think she is very pretty and I love the way she dresses. But other than that I don’t find her very interesting. I think she knew the acting was not going anywhere so took another direction. Shame that some others couldn’t or wouldn’t read the writing on the wall.
