Professor Yunus from Bangladesh and his Grameen Bank have been awarded the Noble Peace Prize because they give small bank credits to very poor people.

Professor Yunus told Roland Burke the prize meant a great deal to him and to Bangladesh. A large crowd gathered at (the headquarters of) Grameen Bank. Members of the banks staff lined up to shake his hand. Micro-credit means offering small loans to the poor so that they can help themselves. About thirty years ago, Mr Yunus gave his first loan of less than twenty dollars to a group of forty women. Grameen Bank now has more than six and a half million customers. Yunus message is that nobody in this world should be poor.

Section 1: Viele sagen, Gefangene drften nicht whlen, weil dies ein Privileg sei, das Gefangene durch ihr Verbrechen verwirkt htten. Section 2: Die Zeit im Gefngnis bedeutet den Entzug der Freiheit. Gefangene sollten aber das Gefhl haben, dass sie der Gesellschaft noch angehren. Section 3: Fr einige Schwerstverbrecher, die nie wieder in die Gesellschaft zurckkehren werden, ist das Wahlrecht nicht sinnvoll. Fr alle anderen gehrt es aber zu ihren natrlichen Rechten.

You: Tommy bat mich zu dolmetschen, weil sein Deutsch noch nicht sehr gut ist. Er sagt, dass er sehr gerne Fuball spielt, aber einige der Jungs im Team machen ihm das Leben schwer. You: The coach says that its true: Some of the boys arent fair to you, but there are some complaints about you, too. Dont mention any names, but lets hear what the boys do. You: Tommy sagt, sie schickanieren ihn. Manchmal kriegt er einen Tritt ab oder jemand stellt ihm ein Bein, wenn der Schiedsrichter nicht hinschaut. An manchen Tagen hat er das Gefhl, dass sie ihm den Ball nicht geben wollen. Und wenn die Mannschaft verliert, gibt man ihm als dem angeblich schwchsten Spieler die Schuld. You: The coach says you have to accept criticism of the way you play. But these attacks are really bad. Are there any problems outside the playing field? You: Tommy meint, in der Umkleidekabine werden seine Sachen oft verlegt. Er hat das Gefhl, dass alle dann ber ihn lachen und doppelt so schnell auf Deutsch reden, damit er ja nichts kapiert. You: The coach would like to suggest that you try not be so touchy about everything. And if you need help, ask one of the nice boys they think you dont like to talk to other kids, and that can seem arrogant. You: Tommy sagt, das ist berhaupt nicht fair! Wer so etwas ber ihn sagt, macht es ihm schwer, zu allen Jungs freundlich zu sein. You: The coach is just repeating what he heard. Hed like to sit down together with you and two or three team members who have also complained about the others behaviour. Think about it and let him know.

Even as a child Taylor read eagerly everything he could find about the Peace Corps and dreamed / dreamt of helping the underprivileged of the world, just like the volunteers did in their promotional films. He never got tired of watching the young Americans who smiled cheerfully all the time they were working in the most awful living conditions. But his serious interest in the organization developed one summer vacation when Taylor was working for a local charity which distributed food to the citys poor. When he left college, Taylor applied to join the Peace Corps, but at that time they werent taking on any new volunteers. So Taylor started a job with an airline. He saw that as a chance to travel and to gain work experience. He kept up his local volunteer work, and just when he was beginning to give up hope, the Peace Corps invited him to spend two years in Paraguay. They were planning a new health center there, and they were looking for people who spoke Spanish and Taylor did.

Journalist: Have you always been interested in volunteer work? Taylor: Yes, I have, since high school. In my hometown I worked for a charity for the poor. But Ive always admired the American Peace Corps. When I applied first, they werent taking on any new volunteers, so I had to wait. Journalist: But then you got the job. Did you need to have any special qualifications? Taylor: Well, I had to know something about healthcare and first-aid, and to speak two foreign languages, one of them really well. Journalist: and that was Spanish. Taylor: Right. And of course I was trained by the Peace Corps on how to organize things, how to buy building materials, how to deal with the authorities things like that. Journalist: I bet working full-time for the Peace Corps was one of the most important decisions in your life. Taylor: Oh, it sure was. And Ive never regretted it, not one minute. I love it. Ive got a mission now, and Im helping people who need help badly. It makes me feel good to know Im helping in the right way. Journalist: And how long have you been living in this village in South America, here in Paraguay? Taylor: Ive been living and working here for six months now. Im going to stay in this village for two years until the new health centre is ready. But then who knows? the Corps might ask me to go to another country in South America. And Ill go, believe me! Journalist: Well, good luck then!
