Whats up here?

vision
I am looking to find a way to send the message of "We Need Trees" as far as I can. This message is a symbol of our work but educating more people and increase the awareness about environment are what I am about to do. Education is a very important way to stop destroying the nature, and of course kids are making future. so educated kids will do much better than what we are doing now!!!!
mission
I want to give this message to you , all of you and all people of the world without considering their race , religion or nationality .
I am going to ask all the people of the world to keep the “ care for the
world and plant trees ” , because our life depends on the life of the trees .
To put it in action ,I am cycling around the world to pass the message of WE NEED TREES and in cities along the way I go to schools to make a workshop for kids and talk about trees. I talk about trees and their importance in our life and we discuss to find out what we indevidually can do for our planet to keep it clean.
Kids are making future and if they learn how to look after nature then we will have green earth and blue sky.
About my workshops in school 
In the school we usually set a workshop with students ( age between 7 to the end of high school !). first I tell them about my journey a bit and after ward we discuss about our personal impact on environment. there re some materials like PPT, pictures, video which I use during the class. 
At the end we wrap up with planting a tree all together to symbolize our action and make a physical contact with earth. we always use our hands to give dirt and soil to the tree and some part of our soul too, in return to receive from earth.
 All my activities and visiting school is for free, just I will be happy if school provide the tree, otherwise I will bring it myself. 


 

Planting tree in Eduparc of Biel-Bienne

Eduparc Biel-Bienne AG
WE NEED TREES
On Friday, 8th of March 2013, Mohammad visited our school in Biel. The students were already excited to meet him, because we've seen his film about his work on Monday. So Mohammad and I came together early in the morning - by bike.
All in all Mohammad talked with three different groups and the students seemed to be very touched by his personality and his journey. Especially the pictures about the children having almost nothing to eat or being infected by HIV touched their hearts

Workshop in VMS school Frastanz

Mar
01

 

I have met Klaus while I was almost stuck in snow in Alberg pass and he gave me a lift. Then he invited me to stay with him for a night and now after 2 months from that day I am back again here to meet him and have some lovely day with him.
Clemens who is Klaus’s son helped me to contact his school and they also kindly accepted me to have a workshop in the school. I was actually planning to leave a day earlier but having this chance of visiting school was enough to stay longer and spend some lovely time with students.
Today in the morning Clemens came to pick me and we went to his class

Last days before having vacation in Turkey

Jan
30

 I was in Eschenbach with Rachelle and her family.
On Monday 14 Jan I could visit Montessori school again which was quite nice to be there for the second time. We had kind of interview in school with kids and afterward I went back home. I was ready for my appointment with immigration office and I was quite sure which I will extend my visa nd continue my journey in Europe.
It was Jan 15 and the time for visiting immigration office to extend my visa. I went there and after finger print and signature the lady behind the window asked me where your permit from Austria is? And I had nothing!!! I was confused and told her I don’t have any!! And in a few min she returned and told me which I should leave Switzerland in 7 days

Leaving Berne and cycling to Geneva

Jan
29

 

I was in Berne on 30nd of December and I planned to stay there few days with Benno.
Of course we had sightseeing, lots of talk and walks around the town and for the new year we were invited to Benno’s friend for dinner.
Berne is capital of Switzerland what I didn’t know before I came to Switzerland, I always have been thinking that Zurich is capital city as I have always heard just about Zurich.
I actually didn’t have much to do in Berne a part of staying with Benno and fixing my bike. The rear carrier was not fit with the panniers and always my panniers were falling and it was not so pleasant at all. Even once it caused me falling down in Winterthur.
There is a kind of bicycle shop in Berne which they collect old bicycles and make them apart and use the gears to make another one which could be used for longer time and they send them to Africa. The idea was great actually and I liked it very much

Geneva...begining of struggle

Jan
20

I was in Geneva for 2 days, some kind of disappointing as I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t find a school, I couldn’t contact Red Cross and all activities I was planning was somehow failed. In the other hand I was almost at the end of my pocket and not much money left for me. My visa extension was on the process and everything looked quite not in the right way, anyway it was my way of looking at things otherwise they were all in the right direction and it was just me who couldn’t realize them and understand them. This is the reason I travel, which is to realize and understand life, develop the way of understanding life and myself and of course expand my heart to love more and more,

Planting tree in Montessori school in Zurich

Jan
01

I had an old friend in Zurich who I was willing to meet after 6 years. I met her first in India 6 years ago and it was wonderful to meet her again in Switzerland.
I asked her to find a sschool for my project but it was quite hard as it was the last week before new year´s holidays and people were so busy and not very interested to get involved to any other things except their own things.
finally just on the last days before holidays start we could find a school through another friend ( Balz ).

Last days in Austria

Dec
30

 

I was in Klaus house for a night and next day it was still raining. Klaus told me he can send me to Alberschwende, where Aurelia’s parents live and I was planning to go and visit them.
next day I was actually thinking if the rain stop, then I will cycle to Alberschwende which was about 40km…I was checking the weather every 15min to see how it looks, but Klaus’s mother came and asked me if I like fish or not?!! It means that she was going to prepare something for lunch and it also means I just forgot about cycling to appreciate being with some lovely people.
The reason I am cycling is to meet people and stay with them, live and learn from them and I just use bicycle as a mean of transport.

I have been in Iran quite a long time. I am here to develop the WNT Association in Iran which takes lots of time and energy. But it definitally is needed to spend this time here to have the Association working. 
To be honest it is not easy for me to stay somewhere longer than a month and is getting super hard but in the other hand I have no choice. Just need to be patient and concentrate on this work. 
Hopefully I can manage it sooner to be free again and continue my journey. I am also looking for a publisher to publish my book.
