Plantingtree in International school in Geneva


I was in Biel. It was the first night which I arrived there and Renate told me they are going to a birthday party that evening. I joined them also to meet more people and know new people as well. It was all fine and we had a lovely chat. I met Alison that night and we discussed a bit about my project while she excitedly giving reaction about weneedtrees. I was quite surprised and happy.
Next day I received an email from Jan who is a teacher in international school in Geneva asking if I am heading there or not, or if I can visit their school? He said which last night I have met someone in a birthday party who sent the email to Jan introducing me!! Very kind of Alison

Workshop in VMS school Frastanz



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

Planting tree in Montessori school in Zurich


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 ).

Planting tree in a primary school in Egg ( Bregenswild )


When I was in Vienna, Aurelia was trying to find a school for my project and she contacted some schools and teachers.
Elisabeth Schwarz who is a teacher in a primary school in Egg in Bregenswile region kindly responded and I went there for our tree planting.
The weather was not fine for a tree planting and we had just our workshop and talking to kids and we just took a tree in a pot as a symbol of our work and also they promissed to plant it when the season is fine for tree planting.

I have a big respect for Aurelia and Elisabeth´s help and support to this project.

Planting tree in Den Haag



When I was in Iran just a week before departure I received 2 guests from Netherlands who I met the a year before in Azerbaijan.
Fatma Bulaz and her brother.  She already knew about my project because we had done it in Azerbaijan where she was working as a volunteer.
She managed 2 schools here in Den Haag for tree planting.
First we went to visit Our World School ( Onze Wereld in Dautch ). Narin who was the teacher kindly managed everything and we had a wonderful workshop.
There was a Power Point to present and some discussion about trees which kids loved it ( I hope so !).
At last we planted a tree all together.  An apple tree which was donated by the principle of school.
I should also be grateful for Fatma Aktas who came as a member of UPF ( universal peace federation ) to join our workshop
