Reisebericht 1 aus ACC Namibia

Reisebericht 1 aus ACC Namibia
von Frau Yasmin Jeng

29.06.2022

Ich kam auf dem namibischen Flughafen an, wo sich der Abflug um fast anderthalb Stunden verzögert hatte, inmitten der Panik über die häufigen Annullierungen deutscher Flüge. Die Direktorin hatte fast zwei Stunden lang im Terminal ausgeharrt. Auf den belebten Straßen gibt es Straßenhändler oder Kinder, die einem Dinge aufdrängen. Der Kontrast zwischen dem armen Land draußen und den sauberen, wohltätigen und disziplinierten Schulen und Betreuungseinrichtungen von ACC war krass. Es ist schwer zu glauben, dass dies Namibia ist, wenn man die sauberen und gut organisierten Schlafsäle, Speisesäle, Schulen und das Buddha-Zentrum sieht, in dem die Morgen- und Abendkurse abgehalten werden. Das gut gesprochene Chinesisch der Schüler, ihr höfliches Verhalten, die stille Konzentration während der Mahlzeiten im Speisesaal und die Dankgebete vor und nach dem Essen gaben mir das Gefühl, in einem sehr reinen Traum zu leben und nicht aufwachen zu wollen. Erst als Wasser und Strom ab und zu abgestellt wurden und die Schule kein Internet hatte, war ich wach und mir bewusst, dass ich in Namibia war.

For Spring Festival 2022 ~ A heartfelt message from the children of Lesotho ACC ~~ We have all grown up!
2010 was our first year at Lesotho ACC and now in the new year 2022 we would like to say a big thank you to our hardworking monk father Huili and to all our godparents and godmothers who have a heart of “love without borders”: “We are all grown up Thank you for all your hard work and support over the past 12 years!
We don’t know if you all remember what we looked like when we were little and shy: little Obama, the little boy who couldn’t show his respect when he kowtowed (he fell asleep doing it), the Head of the center Mi….

How do we look now? Do you recognize us?

ACC Germany e. V. thanks you

Dear friends of the ACC,

 

The year is almost over. We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your commitment and support despite the difficult Corona situation in 2021.

 

 

We wholeheartedly wish you, your families and friends the best of luck, blessings and, above all, health. Happy New Year 2022!

Sincerely,

Your ACC Germany e.V. team

Bodhi Park: an agricultural model concept for Amitofo Care Centers

In his endeavor to pass on the humanitarian aid work of the ACC in Africa, Master Huili seeks ways that remain viable, especially for the children, and promise to be future-proof. The Bodhi Park concept could offer such an instrument. Since the first olive tree was planted in Cape Town in 1996, more than 120 hectares of olive trees and 400 hectares of rooibos tea trees have grown in Bodhi Park.

Bodhi Park supports 4 concepts and continues the power of love:
1. Respect for life
2. Caring for the planet, looking after it, taking care of it.
3. Integration into nature and society (in both, in all directions)
4. Learning with one another to attain enlightenment.

In addition, avocado and lemon trees as well as seasonal fruits and vegetables such as watermelons, pumpkins, cantaloupes etc. are planted so that they can offer orphans job opportunities in the future and gradually become self-sufficient. The residents can also be supplied and given job opportunities so that they can sustainably maintain operations. The founder’s wish: That the Cape Town Bodhi Park model be applied to all Amitofo Care Centres in the near future can be also used in other countries so that the many orphans living in Africa can receive education and grow up healthy.
