      Dear Maria, Janet and all,

      Before joining the group, I wanted to first be engaged personaly
      with Africa, from my ground position in Edmonton, Canada. I now am
      grounded in that I now am in touch and set to work with one woman
      from Sirrea Leonne and another one from Sudan who works as an NGO
      employee under who's supervision, I work at my initiative "Healing
      the Inner Circle".
      The lady from Sierrea Leonne has managed to raise the funds for a
      school in her village. As well as keeping up with ongoing
      improvements to the school, she also has a cell phone number now
      that the children of her area are circulating amongst themselves and
      at the appropriate time, they reach out to her for help to get away
      from the soldiers life into which they got abducted to serve. She
      then puts in gear the search and rescue of these children.
      My other Edmonton contact works for a local initiative amongst new
      comers to Canada. It is called Action for Healthy Communities. I
      am hoping and studying how we could set the grounds and conditions
      together, to grow the infrastructure that can offer the new comers
      with the training and the service to deploy their training back into
      their homeland, with all the support for the task at hand. I call
      it the Activation of the Human Cleansing River.
      Currently, the African person with whom I am in touch and who is
      still in Africa is Helen. Maria, you met with her in Tanzania and
      now, I am here to describe the invitation to the idea of releasing
      this Activation of the Cleasing River. At the moment it is, but a
      small trickle through the damm of past history; but there are many
      trickles and we are activated in the improvisation of the currency
      of times!!!
      From my ground position as a stay-at-home-dad-grand-dad-citizen-
      voter-taxpayer, this current represents the hope for me, that Canada
      is given the opportunity to move in high gear with our peace
      missions, and break through the damm that is holding back the needed
      flow of sanity and wisdom to adjust defense budget levels to the
      development's demands.


      After 14 months of participation with Minciu Sodas vision, I feed my
      dreamwork capacities at investing all of my focus toward the day
      when people like Andrius, Janet, Jeff, Joy, Franz and all the
      gravity of intelligence, liberating us all from the stronghold of
      military's thinking. This experience is to me, like a living embryo
      of solemn beauty of being human being cultivated from each one's of
      our inner most being.
      In that dreamwork of living universal poetry, I see the Cleasing
      River as a very palpable reality, waiting for us to get our way from
      cyber space.
      Here is the kind of basic package, in which I see us all emerging to
      gather around, and to set out the the training ground and deployment

      Mobile production units for developing countries - Worldwide
      Partners program

      SN World Foundation will supply to countries and developing regions
      the technology and necessary support for production in series of
      Mini-plants in mobile containers (40-foot). The Mini-plant system is
      designed in such a way that all the production machinery is fixed on
      the platform of the container, with all wiring, piping, and
      installation parts; that is, they are fully equipped... and the Mini-
      plant is ready for production.

      More than 700 portable production systems: Bakeries, Water
      purification, Dehydrated food, Steel Nails, Fruit juice preparation,
      Tire Retreading, Reinforcement Bar Bending for Construction
      Framework, Sheeting for Roofing, Ceilings and Façades, Plated Drums,
      Aluminum Buckets, Injected Polypropylene Housewares, Pressed
      Melamine Items (Glasses, Cups, Plates, Mugs, etc.), Mufflers,
      Construction Electrically Welded Mesh, Plastic Bags and Packaging,
      Medical assistance mobile units, Sanitary Material, Hypodermic
      Syringes, Hemostatic Clamps, etc.

      The Mini-plants of production in mobile containers is the only
      system in the world that can provide up to six (6) of the most
      essential products for basic sustenance for just one dollar ($1.00)
      per day.

      SN World Foundation has started a Co-investment program for the
      installation of small Assembly Plants to manufacture, in series, the
      Mini-plants of portable production on site, region or country where
      required. One of the most relevant features is the fact that these
      plants will be connected to the International Trade System, with
      access to more than 50 million raw materials, products and services
      and automatic transactions for world trade.

      Due to financial reasons, involving cost and social impact, the best
      solution is setting up Assembly Plants on the same countries and
      regions, using local resources (labor, some equipment, etc.) SN
      World Foundation participates at 50% (fifty percent) for investment
      of each Assembly Plant.

      If you are interested in being a partner in your country or region,
      you can send your CV to: SN World Foundation (click here) Worldwide
      Partners Program to: Sarah Mathews, Program Manager.

      In my part of the dreamwork, I see us being blessed with all of the
      Canadian military transport equipment and training facility at our
      disposal for such a mission. The first task, is inner peace...then
      lets get on with the job to demonstrate how we deploy life over
      death's strongholds of terror-anti-terror!

      ...let's dream on, sweet holistic-wholistic people...

      I'm fully involved now in the life year. Two young people I caring
      for, the project of women who is not yet started and perhaps it will
      start later. I'm in touch with peole in Kenya through Janet and I'm
      a little worry of expectations they have. Janet is helping me so
      much. The matter is that what comes from Europe and west world is
      not always good, and people are not always skilled. I think that is
      not possible generalize but I think that skilled local people can
      work in much more effective way that foreners. So I'm very
      convinced that we must at first collaborate to develop local skills
      and therefore to increase the capacity of woking.
