Recommended Viewings: SAIH Norway videos

After last week's Nordic-inspired reflections on giving, here are some more Nordic-originated thoughts on how to do mission well:

SAIH Norway (the Norwegian Students' and Academics' International Assistance Fund) has put out thought-provoking and entertaining videos meant to cause Westerners to question the stereotypes they have of Africa and aid to Africa. These funny videos could be quite effective at provoking important mission conversations in classroom settings.

First are several videos promoting a non-existent "Africa for Norway" aid campaign for Africans to sent heaters to Norway:
Africa for Norway
Radi-Aid - Warmth for Christmas
The Radi-Aid App

Second are a couple of videos skewering the types of attitudes and practices that go along with Western aid to Africa:
Let's save Africa! - Gone wrong
Who wants to be a volunteer?
