The Bootstrap Project .

The Bootstrap Project's mission is to create a sustainable platform to promote and retain centuries-old crafts and customs. they create the outlet for the local artisans. The profits of the sales go back to the artists and their communities, through their development partners, to empower them by providing the education and opportunity to retain, preserve and advance their fast-dying crafts, customs and way of life. By purchasing through Bootstrap you allow artisans—who act as the catalyst for their whole communities—to end their own poverty. It’s trade not aid.

Head to The Bootstrap Project website. You'll see baskets made by Raphael in Zambia, 100% of the proceeds from which will help construct a permanent roof to keep his home dry during the rainy season. Wooden stools carved by Sodiqjan in Tajikistan are amongst the finest example of that country's dying craft, and you can help keep it alive.

نحيييييييييييييسة ..

Congratulations .

كلام حكيم

يحكى أن رجلا تكالبت عليه المشاكل من كل جانب وأصبح مهموما مغموما، ولم يجد حلالما هو فيه..

فقرر أن يذهب إلى أحد (الحكماء) لعله يدله على سبيل للخروج من الهم الذي هو فيه

وعندما ذهب إلى الحكيم ..سأله قائلا:

أيها الحكيم لقد أتيتك وما لي حيلة مما أنا فيه من الهم فأرشدني؟

فقال الحكيم بعد أن نظر في وجه ذلك الرجل:

أيها الرجل سأسألك سؤالين وأريد منك إجابتهما

فقال الرجل: اسأل؟

فقال الحكيم: أجئت إلى هذه الدنيا ومعك تلك المشاكل؟

قال الرجل: اللهم لا..

فقال الحكيم: هل ستترك هذه الدنيا وتأخذ معك تلك المشاكل؟

قال الرجل: اللهم لا..

فقال الحكيم: أمر لم تأت به، ولن يذهب معك .. الأجدر ألا يأخذ منك كل هذا الهم فكن صبورعلى أمر الدنيا وليكن نظرك إلى السماء أطول من نظرك إلى الأرض يكن لك ما أردت

فخرج الرجل منشرح الصدر مسرور الخاطر مردد:

أمر لم تأت به ولن يذهب معك

لا يستحق أن يأخذ منك كل هذا الهم

Patient's helping fund @ Adailiyah clinic . very civilized .

I saw this beautiful canteen at Adailiyah clinic , Adailyah , and i was really surprised to find this well colored and well displayed canteen , and what struck my eye's that it mention Patient's helping fund , i don't know who's behind this wonderful idea and who's supporting it , but if it means what it say's i think it's an excellent thing to be done and i hope it will extend to the rest of the other clinics in Kuwait . Who's ever behind it , i give him 2 thumbs up for 2 reasons , first , the idea of the fund , second for the civilized beautiful way to display canteen items , not the one we used to see ( Aluminum or other ugly canteens !!!!!!! ) , thank you for brighting us up .
