The moment has arrived... the first steps onto a dry, dusty landscape, the sun's rays are glistening bright and scorching hot. It is difficult to perceive silhouettes in the distance and yet the anticipation rises immeasurably. What is it that drives people to this abandoned land in the middle of the African desert? What makes them voluntarily expose themselves to the extremes of nature?
It is freedom. It is the connection. It is love. It is the unconditional being in a world far away from the conventional rules, the omnipresent pressure and the constant competition against others, against time, against oneself.
This is the place that gives you liberty, union and charity unconditionally to all and everyone who opens themselves to it. The very essence of the principles of "Radical Inclusion" (Anyone may be a part of. We welcome and respect thestrangers. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.) and "Gifting" (devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value).
This magical place of gathering has gifted unconditionally over the years with an indescribable abundance, without ever seeking anything in return.
And perhaps that is why we, who love this magical place, can hear the silent call for help from afar…
Caring is the act of the heart to support others with of love. Care is what AfrikaBurn needs now to survive. Sustainability is the only thing that can ensure the survival of this cultural gathering.
And that is why we initiated this fundraising to help AfrikaBurn cover their financial expenses.
