Strong Roots Project–Workshops for African schools

Hello world :)

My name is Isabel Seda from STRONG ROOTS PROJECT and I want to support children in Africa by giving them hope for a better future.
For that we need to break through old systems of violence, overpopulation and  environmental pollution by opening new perspectives of education…
Yes, this sounds like a big plan, but if politics fail, we have to stand up and act ourselves and start with little steps and big dreams.

My step will be a travel to Africa with a motivated and experienced team - sharing art and mindfulness workshops with young people in poor regions.

Our first school to visit will be in Ghana (
We want to spend around 3 weeks with the children sharing:

• Mindfulness practices as meditation&yoga with a portuguese organisation called "O pequeno Buda "
• Art&craft workshops and paintings for the school walls
• Instrument-manufacturing using recycled materials
• Strenghten consciousness towards nature

We also plan to open talking circles about the taboo topics sexuality, contraception and menstruation for the teenagers.

If this makes sence to you as well, please support our project.
For our journey we will need around 3000 € (600€ each for flight and visa) and some extra money for material costs, support for the school, financial help for individual children in need…

I will keep you updated and record during our time in Ghana to be able to release a film afterwards.
