BOTTLE TOWER GARDENS IN RWANDA
Today, Ulrich HASSAN posted the following comment at YOU TUBE, concerning my video on Bottle Tower Gardens (http://youtu.be/K9vN2eudWcQ) :
“What I like on white people is the way you share important information to the whole world. This shows your passion! I appreciated and I have to help Rwandan people to implement this in our country. Thank you YouTube and thank you, this adorable old man, Willem Van Cotthem.”
Here is my reply : The color of our skin should never be a significant factor in our relationships. Looking for any profit when working at development cooperation should be severely condemned. Booking success with development initiatives should be a reward in itself. I hope my BOTTLE TOWER GARDENS will become a simple step for many Rwandan families towards a bit of food security and a daily portion of fresh food with vitamins and minerals, in particular for the children.
I couldn’t resist thinking at Hemingway’s “THE OLD MAN AND THE BOTTLE TOWER” or was it “THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA”? At my age, you know !
