Dear friends, dear friends
Let me tell you how I feel,
you have given me such treasures
I love you so
Last saturday we celebrated the 10 years of Tinh Truc Gia=TTG, Peaceful Bamboo family, vocational training
Center and living community for young adults, teen agers living with disabilities, inclusive Kindergarten and biodynamic garden.
TTG is a Eurasia Foundation Association project...last year we celebrated the 20 years of Eurasia and we already had a great
feast last year!
...yes we definitively know how to celebrate!
For us, Tinh Truc Gia team, Eurasia ELI team these celebrations are a wonderful opportunity to share our gratitude and reafirm our Interdependence with all our friends, partners,
donors, families, with all those who support our work in so many different ways
It is also a moment to show and share about our work,our ideas, our way of working. It is also a great moment to bring together our larger community and to give the opportunity
to those who want to know us more to come and see what and how we do and to meet us
Mr Tu gave a wonderful talk thanking everyone, and describing the activities and life in TTG, pointing out the vast social field around TTG
Then Tho spoke
about Eurasia TTG ELI and why even though we are not a "rich" organization we always feel a certain "abundance", an abundance that people can feel when they come to TTG or other Eurasia/ELI related events.
Tho then spoke about 4 treasures that we cultivate
together as an Eurasia TTG and ELI team and that it is these treasures that allow us to build and develop our community with trust and a feeling of abundance of life:
- Loving kindness..yes there is KINDFULNESS as one of our treasures in our way
of being, and LOVE is our motivation in all we do
- Compassion...yes...how to elievate suffering and bring Happiness and Wellbeing to people living with disabilities and to Mother earth and all living beings is one of our aims and greatest treasure...
- Joy...oh yes Joy is one of our treasures...this work, our team is joyful! We cultivate moments of joy together even though we all work hard and face challenges inherent to life
- Inclusivness,yes...from the beginning of Eurasia's work...non discrimination
is our banner...non discrimination of gender, abilities/disabilities, religious, old, young...rich/poor...nationality...
And then Tho said...our biggest treasure is you...with this he meant the amazing TTG team, Eurasia team, Eli team but also
all of you on this journey with us
What really brought me joy is to see that the Eurasia network was very present during this 10 year celebration ...Jana, Camille Alain, Peter, Sara Martine Mareijke, were representatives for the many, many Eurasia
members and friends
...but also our family...my sister brother in law, our daughter and granddaughter in the name of our families joined this wonderful occasion to strengthen our interdependence and care for TG Eurasia ELI...
but also a wonderful
vietnamese network is growning and becoming more solid and strong...friends from Saigon, from Hanoi friends from Hue gathered around TTG
ALL TOGETHER WE ARE BUILDING A MORE LOVING, COMPASSIONATE, JOyFUL AND INCLUSIVE WORLD...TOGETHER
We feel humbled and grateful
