A founder's dream
My dream for my own two children and all children on earth to be world citizens, to wake up each morning feeling that they are apart of an amazing world where they play the leading role. I want for all children to be happy, smiling when then sun rises over a gorgeous mountain pass, when walking down to the garden to pick organic vegetables and singing in the rain. I want for all of us to feel gratitude for what we have. I want for all of us to meet challenges with an open mind and for the unknown and for the choices to be made out of knowledge and wisdom. I want everyone to know that life is a journey with lots of love and many helping hands.
I want them to know that world is our home and together we are all responsible to look after it for coming generations.
In December 2013, when visiting a small mountain school in the Rif Mountains of northern Morocco, my own children Maj and Lucas decided to do good for other children by organizing for electricy for all four classrooms in a small mountain village for a year. They did it together with friends back home in Sweden.
The rest is history and will be published in my coming book, ”Live to Love the Road”.
The journey for the pursuit of wisdom led me to the Sahara in December 2015. Sahara called me home and I found my soul in new soil, or soil I left behind many moons ago to return to, to pay back all the beauty life has given me. My own children lived in the Sahara in the spring of 2018 and gave directly back by founding the Tanmirt Junior Club – a space for kids by kids. I am immensely honored to continue their mission together with and Association Tidri under their guidance.
