How to involve fully everybody in the place. Being a community, able to communicate honestly, randomly, spontanouesly...by spending time together and creating a vibe of positivity, trust and friendship instead of negativity, philosophizing, theorizing, blocking the ideas that everybody may have. Let s all reduce our egos and believe in the idea of one another. WE DON T KNOW WHAT IDEAS YOU MAY HAVE.

    For the last days the foundation was build, the energy was renewed. New discussions and a spontaneous meetings happened. With a strong core we will naturally and spontaneously strengthen the house/ the Project/ The Project Volunteering. ( Perhaps, I guess that by taking action and puting our ideas at work we can quickly find out was " IS GOOD FOR YOU " !!! ).
