(With community image picture at background)
Nowadays because of Globalisation, Capitalism, and High speed changing the world trend,
people have been living in a hurry forgetting the importance of our life such as humanity & nature. Due to this serious issue in this world, in the future, there would be more problems in this world, to make our world a better place, and peaceful place we need to rethink about the way of social system and the way of life.
We all have a right to be happy, we all have a right to enjoy our life with family.
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR FAMILY?
DON’T YOU WANT TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE MORE WITH YOUR FAMILY AND LOCAL COMMUNITY PEOPLE?
Due to the world situation, we are all busy to earn money, have to keep paying the tax in our entire life. In this situation how can we make more time for family? And enjoy our life?
IS IT REAL WAY OF LIFE? AND WHO GET INFLUENCE FROM THE SITUATION?
Through our organization facility, we try to show the other way of life which can make all feel happiness taking care the old people who took care of us and teaching children who are our hope for the future. We try to make the world a better place from the local area.
How can we make local people feel happiness?
Here are our five pillars of our Actions.
1.) Organic farm with sustainable development skills.
2.) Organic restaurant & cafe
3.) Daily care centre for elderly
4.) Education centre for children
5.) Volunteer action with local people & Culture centre for learning
We will try to produce healthy organic food, energy, and stuff which we need in our basic life, and share with local people.
In this way basic things which we need to pay or buy using the money, we would save, and we would be able to work less, spending more time with own family & local people, taking care our parents, and teaching kids the real taste of our life.
More time, more connection with family and with local residents, and enjoy more time thinking the real way of life together.
Organic Farming with Sustainable development skills

Recently our food became product following over-consumption & speed consumption, and most of the food which we buy at the supermarket and eat at shops are used full of chemicals & pesticide to manage the hygiene.
We do need to think and know about what we eat and what is the way to our health.
To keep our health the better way is to produce our food locally and consume locally.
At our facility of an organic farm, we produce organic food with local people, and with residents, we try to find the real way of sustainability in the area and teaching and tasting real food with together.
Organic Restaurant & Cafe

Using our organic product from our garden and farm, we cook real healthy food, every time local people can come to our place and taste the healthy food. (We do not ask for the money, but we ask them to help our farm or facility by actions or donation of material which we need to.) Not only tasting the real healthy food for us and the local environment, but we will often hold the event which can learn how to make the food as a cooking lesson.
Through the restaurant & cafe, we can enjoy the time with local people and think what the real healthy way of life is.
Daily Care Center for Elderly

Every countryside nowadays the number of seniors are increasing, and most of them live alone separating from their children who grow up already and moved to the big size of society. They also have rights to enjoy their life, and we all have a responsibility to take care of them as well as they took care of us until we became an adult. At our facility, we take care of them and give them the meaning of life through the variety of activities such as
*Playing with local children
*Taking care & touching the organic garden
*Sharing their experiences & story with local people and kids
*Learning some new stuff through various activities – Yoga, Cultural lesson, movie night, etc.
Education Center for Children

As well as older adults feel, children feel loneliness due to parents situation – busy working.
Due to this situation, a big number of kids eat dinner alone or even have some problems or want to share some of their experiences they cannot communicate with parents.
But that communication with parents or adult people is crucial for those kids to learn what is the importance of life, humanity, and morality.
At our facility as a big size of family, we try to take care these kids communicating with them and have an experience together. Through the experiences, this young generation can learn real way of human being and meaning of life.
Mostly we do not have any particular lesson for kids, through these atmosphere participating in several activities at our facility – we try to increase their curiosity and the way of learning spontaneously.
-holding event by local people & reconnecting local people

Through our organization facility, local people can participate in many activities and also manage activities as the principal instructor following each of our hobby or high point.
People like cooking they can attend or teach other delicious food, some people like yoga also can learn from other or teach their skills. – Through these transfer and exchanging the skills and knowledge, we would be able to reconnect local people and improve & increase our awareness and consciousness of sustainability.
All these five pillars, all together we believe we can raise this awareness and consciousness of the real way of life with full of happiness.
