Shakwei Mbindyo commented on oluka bruno's blog post growing up in africa
"As a child I heard many, many stories similar to this. It seems to me that story telling is not so much dying as being transformed. Many children (in Kenya) no longer just hear these stories from parents / grand parents, but they are also on…"

Garden in a sack

"This is a very good idea. Addition: First: If you really want to make it portable, then don't make it too heavy. Start with thinking about a weight of each mini-garden sack of about 20 kg. Humans can lift such weights, when heavier we might…"

UE Manifesto

In thinking of this Quest, my first question to myself was "What is a Manifesto?" Although I use this word frequently, I was not able to provide a simple answer. Intensive research (read Wiki) indicatethat a manifesto is simply a paper written to explain what you are all about, why you believe what you believe, what your plans are, your purpose, direction and statement of life. This sounded pretty heavy to me but here goes nothing ...

Should I still list you as onboard with the Gratitude Gardens? We'd love to have you...

Great status. Reminds me of the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt that, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

When I was in Peru I made a contact with the Gates Foundation and we're looking at applying for a huge grant to make the Gratitude Gardens a possibility. We need as many participants from Africa and Southeast Asia as possible, and it seems like from your posts you might be interested. Friend me so we can message more about it, I'd love to have you on the team.

LEARN1- Social Innovator

My favorite, and perhaps most needed social innovation today, is "Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.)"This simple idea has two meanings. First, it shows that the injustice of poverty and instability does not have a cookie cutter answer. Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
