I don’t know how to define love. I don’t know how to talk about it .
I can show you. Unconditionally. I can look at you. I can see you . .
I can notice that you are suffering . So because I love you I will help you with my heart to help you wear your burden.
I will heal your wounds . I will take care of every part that hurts . I won’t let you down . Just hold my hands
They come for care sometimes. I take care of their wounds , they mothers can’t afford to deal with.
I recover while healing them up from my own wounds , sharing love
Most of the children follow our sessions just because the food is better inside of Alama’s Garden.
We had the idea to make children contribute to each other’s for us to negotiate more quantities and qualities.
instead of hanging around the city after school, Alama’s Garden keeps children safely off the streets.
There is no harvesting goals. They don’t come for working or for anything like that. It’s about growing green, learning to take care of ones environment while taking care of oneself
The first step of our intervention was about connecting our students with Nature .
It is difficult to be grounded while living inside of a slum so values we learn around gardening help hold on to something strong : learning to get involved inside of a community project, developing patience, courage and the ability to invest one self totally inside of a worthy harvest . It’s a new paradigm , I have asked children to adopt : my vision of love
Why oh why we could decide to get involved inside of such a program .
Paths we choose have always something to do with ourselves.
RKBienfaisance are actions I take for me to claim my humanity.
I refuse to be a spectator, just observing and commenting.
That’s not my approach of being alive.
Being alive means pursuing our journey with love , passion and reverence
If you had lots of money, more money than you ever thought you could be that richer, what will you do with it?
I guess you will try to buy yourself more happiness , won’t you? I would have make the same kind of choice if only I was sure that it was possible .
The choices i made were selfish . I had to buy myself some inner peace and I had no other choices than involving myself inside of something that sounds good to my soul .
I am learning kindness while being kind. I am learning love while loving . I am learning compassion while opening widely my heart to welcome children that have decided to link their destinies to mines.
Their confidence in my abilities to lead them to something that can’t be worst than their actual conditions are my hopeful wings
