    NAIROBI, March 3 (Xinhua) -- Donors have pledged to continue supporting the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) to stabilize Somalia that is beset with terror attacks.


    A statement from the AU mission issued on Friday said representatives of the European Union (EU), the United Nations, Britain, the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD) promised their commitment to helping Africa's flagship peace and security mission pull Somalia out of civil strife.


    Francisco Madeira, Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia, told a meeting in Nairobi that the mission had failed to deliver on some of its objectives due to funding constraints, prompting the officials to seek alternative means.


    ""Inadequate funding has been a major challenge to the implementation of the 2016 budget. Resources were not available to fund our projects and in fact no resources were available,"" Madeira said.


    He appealed to the international community to continue supporting the mission.


    The statement said the pledge was made at a five-day meeting held in Nairobi attended by AMISOM's top leadership and donors.


    The meeting aims to draw up a list of activities and budget that will guide the mission through its exit strategy expected to come into effect in the second half of 2018.


    Albrecht Braun, a representative of the EU-Africa, Caribbean Pacific (EU-ACP) praised AMISOM for the role it has played in pacifying the country emerging from decades of war and anarchy.


    ""It is obviously clear to everybody that without AMISOM, Somalia would not be where it is today. A lot has been achieved, thanks to AMISOM, which has provided the space for the political process to progress,"" Braun said.


    James Haggerty, an official from the British Embassy in Somalia, reiterated the importance of winning the hearts and minds of the Somali population, if stabilization efforts are to yield fruit while lauding AMISOM for trying to achieve the objective.


    ""We look forward to continuing and developing a very close relationship with the African Union and with AMISOM in particular in Mogadishu,"" said Haggerty.


    Issues discussed at the meeting included support for political processes, security sector, stabilization and recovery, protection of human rights and gender process.

    Let's assume that you have drafted an outline of your story and feel good about the way the basic story has been devised. Before you even start filling in the detail within that outline, you need to give some serious thought to your characters' motivations Antonio Garcia Jersey , strengths and weaknesses and the way in which they will impact on the story. If you don't give enough advance attention to this aspect, and if you don't dig deeply into what makes your character's tick, then they are likely to end up as two-dimensional cardboard figures with no life to them. Of course this is a recipe for disaster.
    However, if you take the time to analyse each major character in some detail in advance Derek Rivers Jersey , you will not only ensure that their characteristics fit the plot and become believable, but you will also find that as you build them, certain traits will emerge which could trigger more creative elements within your plot. Many people use a character prompt sheet for each character, with general identity answers as well as other searching questions and answers about their make-up. Whilst this is usually a very comprehensive document Jordan Richards Vapor Untouchable Jersey , I am only going to consider a few of the more important aspects.
    聲 What are the character's inner needs? These will help to determine the general make-up of his behaviour pattern as well as give an indication of what motivates him. These core needs can include things like the need for excellence in what he does; the need to belong; the need to dominate others; the need for excitement; the need to always be seen as a winner, and so on. Any one of these could put a different slant on a relevant scene within the story.
    聲 What happens when a character is denied any of these needs? How does the stress resulting from this denial affect his behaviour? Indulge in this self conflict and imagine how his reaction to this denial can create more interest in the relevant scene in the story. If you have built your character to be a reactive man, allow him to react spontaneously to any situation that denies his core needs.
    聲 What is the character's sexuality? This could affect his attitude towards the opposite sex, or to particular types of persons within the opposite sex.
