As some of you might already know (through Joey’s posts or else), I am join to Senegal for 10 weeks to work on a Permaculture project.
The trip is organized by the Comité Régional d’Éducation pour le Developpement International de Lanaudière (CRÉDIL), and Quebec Sans Frontières (QSF). A team of 10 people (including me) will be spending 75 days in the village of Baback Sérère, approx. 100 km east of Dakar. We will be meeting a community of 150 women to understand the issues, study the landscape and the region, and work with this community to improve their living standard, more specifically food and water supply.
Why am I doing this? Simply because I believe in this. I believe that the world has gone too far. We have broken the balance between Humans and Humans, between Humans and Nature, and between us (Humans) and our own selves. We accept so many ridiculous things. We’ve become spectators in a world of corrupt clowns, fake shows and fireworks. We are impressed by superficial things that make us forget the deeper meaning.
I won’t go deeper into my explanation, I’ll probably write about that soon. I know some people (maybe most people) won’t agree with this, but I don’t care. I profoundly, honestly, and truly believe in this, and this trip is (I hope) the start of a longer journey.
The attached video is a short presentation of the team members, and an explanation of what our trip is about. If you’re able and willing to contribute with a small donation, please visit the following website: http://igg.me/p/265033?a=1682760
