Mwatandala uli/How are you dear worldwide souls?
At the beginning let us wish you a blessed, loving, heartfelt and happy Easter holidays.
We hope you enjoyed it in the plenitude and in knowing how beautiful it is to spend time with Loved Ones and how to be grateful for all you are blessed with. I am being reminded of that each day by my African children. Because every day I look at how happy and thankful they are for smallest things that surround them I am reminded of all the blessings that I am given too. This month was very special because for 3-weeks ELA’s kids and youths were blessed to host one of the world's best photographers, Mr. Bogdan Kladnik, the author of 60 fantastic books of photography.They were given to Presidents around the world, to the Popes and other VIP of the world.
When Bogdan heard of my projects in Malawi he told me I should write a book about my African adventures, my life and the projects that I have been running since 2008.
I started writing the stories and promised to come to Malawi to capture the beauty of nature, people, ELA’S angels and to film ELA’s youths and their amazing talents.
I wrote a book called THE WARM HEART OF AFRICA. Bogdan helped me with everything else like opening the way to the world of online book retailers, composed the imagery of the book, captured beautiful pictures.
With most joyful and honored heart I can say that book is already available worldwide (in the USA, EU, Asia / Japan, China, India, Australia and New Zealand, through Amazon and other online stores). You can order it as a preorder as it is coming out in mid-June 2016.
The Warm Heart of Africa is coming out under Guardians of the Universe publications with its so called BOOKS WITH CAUSE. They are six books, which sales (20% of the book cost) will support humanitarian projects for the protection of nature, water and help on the way to a better education for children, youth worldwide.
More details of the books: www.bookswithcause.com
In the book, The Warm Heart of Africa I am presenting positive stories of Africa. Such, of which the media has yet not reported. I describe the power of Africans positive spirit, the joy that they feel over every day and the natural beauty of Africa. I describe all the projects that I have conducted in Uganda and Tanzania in 2008/2009, my life and work in Malawi from 2011 to the present day. I also write about my personal life, thoughts that have been rumbling through my mind while being taught tough lessons, how I dealt with challenges and victories that I have been blessed with and ultimately I write about the pure Love that found me.
The book will be equipped with 90 phenomenal photographs Bogdan Kladnik, poetry of Guthema Roba (Ethiopian poet) and my humble words. Surely after reading enthusiastic stories you will find yourself feeling the strength and determination, so you too will follow your boldest dreams as I did myself.
You can order the Book Here (Cheapest option) or on any Amazon
