It is a place for introducing and experiencing projects and solutions for designing a better society worth living in. Sustainability is an important guiding principle in our society, and it means more than ‘just’ protecting the environment – true sustainability also means taking the economy and social affairs into account. As an area dedicated to fun and the joy of living, Der Grüne Kiez is the perfect place to get this message across.

In February Anna from Germany visited us at Mahenzo School. She brought a E-Piano and some flutes to teach classes 1 and 2. The children really enjoyed it. At the end they had a little concert infront of the whole school. After this project the piano and flutes will be relocated to other schools so that other children can also learn and express themselves musically.
In January we offered a workshop for our farmers and communities. The topic was permaculture which helped them understand a more natural concept of farming activities.
