Our project, that we are doing in the Favela Vila Pinheiro, Complexo da Maré, Rio de Janeiro, needs your help.
It is our goal and desire to provide a program in which through the efforts and dedication of myself and collegues a process occurs enriching both our lives and more importantly the members of the community. Thus reducing the social differences amongst the world’s peoples and ultimately having a tangible positive impact on the lives of the underprivileged within the favela.
To teach them the discipline through a range of artistic workshops that will make them independent and believe that they deserve the good in life.
creating a Library
Painting the wall of the houses
Telling story stories
Connect them with the mother earth how to plant seeds and what you get from those seeds.Then plant them( seed planting and gardening)
For over a year and a half we have worked at the favela creating a strong bond with the community. Everything is based on love. Children and adults respect my work and above all trust me. It is now time to take it to another level. To teach them the discipline that will make them independent and believe that they deserve the good in life.
As a child Samia took refuge in her local library in the suburbs of Paris. This is where she fled the daily violence that she had to endure. There she felt at peace, in harmony, at home. The more books she read, the more a new world opened up to her. The colors, the images, the words were her best friends. Reading opened her inner vision so that she could start to believe in another world. A world where dreams can become a reality.
It is thanks, in part, to these nourishing books that she is where she is now. That she has been able to follow her visions and travel the world in pursuit of transformation and healing through spreading the message of Love.
If this had an impact on her, then surely it can inspire the beautiful children we work with!
Our work now is to make a library and develop more artistic workshops at the favela where we volunteer. Sadly, due to poverty, most of the young people at the Favela very rarely get the opportunity to dive in and immerse themselves in inspiring reading material.
Get them conscience of Mother earth with some workshop how to plant seeds and what you get from those seeds……..
Seed planting and gardening workshops will help the children connect to nature, and the miracle of the transformation of a seed to a plant, the children in the favela are very disconnected from Nature, and this chance to be in gardens and interacting with plants will be so good for them.
Get involve also the adults.
The aim is to involve the adults also, so that the whole family can learn, heal and enjoy together,
