My environment includes myself

It was a question asked by one of the kids inside of our eco-classes . What is my environment?

Trying to explain to him while searching for words to help him better understand I summed it up by answering that your environment , it is the sky, the lagune, the stars, the moon, the sun, the air we are breathing , the oceans, the fishes , the earth, the world , his country, his city, his town, his slum, his neighborhood, his friends, his family, himself … anything he might think about is it’s envieonment

Yes, we are all that and much more than that.

We are free to be at peace with our environment , taking care of it warm fully with love because our environment is ourselves

A mission: to keep the children safely off the streets

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

One moment inside of Alama’s Garden

What we have created is a living space… instead of hanging around the city all day long, instead of wandering around again and again … Alama’s Garden is about sharing positive energy .

Knowing that somewhere there is that place where you can rest a little bit before fighting to survive.

Knowing that inside of Alama’s Garden you will always be welcomed not for what you have, just for who you are: a human being joining other human beings

Travelling with the books for Alama’s Garden

I bought books one by one.

Then, Kelly Masson and Frédéric Liehn gave us the complements .Then Coeur d’Art

The NGO led by the French secondary schools students in Côte d’Ivoire, brought us some books too .

My girl Anne-Kadia came one summer for an helping hand

I hired an educator and a gardener

We could have waited for people to answer to our call to action. We could have waited for the right time to come …. but we didn’t.

We have decided to begin as we were from where we were with what we had
