At the UN Night event
The UN week started with an official launching ceremony of the first electronic UN Bulletin and an e-roster for a better collaboration with the public. Over 150 UN partners and journalists took part at the ceremony chaired by the President of the UNCG with the participation of the members of the Committee.
On 18 October, upon a request of the Staff Association chaired by the UNIC Lome Information Officer, staff members were invited to give blood to the National Centre of blood transfusion in Lomé. The same day, 5 radio stations (Radio Lomé, Radio Nana FM, Radio Maria, Radio Evangile and Radio Djabaal Nour) started a radio quiz on the UN and particularly the objective of the MDGs and their success.
The main activity of this year celebration was the UN Night organized on 23 October 2010 in the capital. The UN Night was an occasion for the UN system to raise funds for the joint programme launched in 2008 in the North under the denomination: “Communes du Millénaire”. In order to sensitize the participants, the UNCG produced a video on that “Communes du Millénaire” which was screened during the night.
The ceremony was chaired jointly by the UN Resident Coordinator and the Togolese Ministry of Health on behalf of the government. The Ministry paid tribute to the UN for all its agencies and encouraged to continue assisting the country on its way to development.
The event completed by an entertainment session with a concert by singers with an orchestra and a performance by student-members of UNESCO Club at the University of Lomé.
