Celebrative Sticker #17: VENUSTE NIYONGABO!

Burundi forever! Finally after 16 issues we have the opportunity to celebrate the wonderful world of athletics as well. We do it with an authentic monument of African sport, with a gold medal at the Olympics, with a friend also from our Italy and our Bologna where he has lived for some time. The Celebrative Sticker # 17 solidarity sticker is Mr. Atlanta ’96: Venuste Niyongabo!

Sometimes in sport as in life the choices that are made lead to unexpected results, perhaps for others, not for Venuste. We are sure that when the Burundian athlete gave up running the 1500m in Atlanta, where he was among the favorites, to give a dream to his compatriot, he was equally convinced that he could play his cards even in the 5000m. However, Venuste will win that race and bring his country to triumph with the gold medal, the first for Burundi.

25 years have passed since that triumph, could we not take advantage of it to celebrate a historic victory? Venuste now lives in Bologna, he continues to run and make others run through the Run Like Us Association, as well as his social commitment through various realities including the important reality of Peace and Sport, supported by many current sportsmen and past, now also from Figurine Forever (https://www.peace-sport.org/)

VENUSTE NIYONGABO FOR BURUNDI!
Beneficiaries of this new solidarity card is the KAMENGE Youth Center, a meeting place for young people from the Northern Districts of Bujumbura. A project that focuses on the implementation of the Peace and Sport Methodology. The Center in 2012 received the “Right Livelihood Award”, better known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”, for its action in favor of dialogue between ethnic groups. This program to contribute to a culture of peace through sport is supported by the World Association of the Diaspora (the Burundians who live and work abroad) of which Venuste is Secretary General.

Celebrative Sticker #11: PAMELA NOUTCHO SAWA!

It took 11 Celebrative to get to the first woman, too many, but it wasn’t a choice. The choice, strong and convinced, however, was to celebrate Pamela, Italian boxing champion in the Elite 2020 category. The sportswoman, of Cameroonian origin, who in everyday life works as a nurse at the Maggiore Hospital in Bologna.

A beautiful story of sport, life and aggregation. Pamela is in fact an athlete of the ASD Bolognina Boxe Social Gym, a reality born in 2017, which soon became a reference point for the neighborhood and far beyond, strongly based on the belief that the right to sport must be accessible to all, without sex differentiation, religion, race and social background.

Just as Pamela helped the Gym to make itself known and appreciated, so much so that it was rewarded for the work done by the Municipality of Bologna, Figurine Forever also decided to contribute to the rebirth of this important reality, after the long months of closure due to sanitary emergency. The proceeds from the sale of this solidarity sticker will in fact be used to support the activities of Bolognina Boxe.

Not only that, in the sticker we want to emphasize a detail, the Italian flag, to remember the struggle of Pamela and many other women and men like her, who grew up in Italy, to obtain citizenship. In his case, also for proven sporting merits.

Pamela queen of FIGUCON! The new solidarity sticker will be on sale for a preview on 12 June at the great event organized by the Association, at Estragon Club, Bologna.
