Let your heart see

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The little Prince

Heartfelt connections are so needed in our lives, never ever get old, and stay with you forever.

Like the one I experienced with Fredy almost two years ago. It happened in a theatre and he sat there with a yellow safety jacket. We were complete strangers, but our hearts saw each other that day.

Meet Fredy here and enjoy the full heart-warming story. <—— Simply click here.

A picnic without borders

As you may know, I am also a German teacher and as such I welcome people from all over the world in my classroom. It may well happen that every student comes from another country and we count around ten nations. Right now we combine six from three continents. Nigeria and Eritrea/Africa, Mongolia, Nepal and Syria/Asia, Switzerland/Europe (that is obviously me :-)).

Crafting change

In the beautiful and lush region around Fort Portal in Uganda over a 1000 women craft change by producing handmade high-quality baskets that are exported to England every three months.

Initiated and developed by Anne, the ladies develop their own natural colours, dye the raw material made of raffia, banana fiber and papyrus into a rainbow of colours, and handcraft the baskets. The products therefore come in stunning combinations and patterns.

Talking to these wonderful souls is very inspirational. They kindly open a window into their lives when we visit for my husband‘s amazing social enterprise Communauts.
