Light Up Mama Africa, a journey with Kiran Kreer | Voyage Of Light

Update posted by Kiran Kreer On Jul 11, 2019

Hey friends

This crowdfunding page has been stopped as per Paypal policy that only limits crowdfunding for 120 days. So we will soon start a new page for the coming projects and social aid work in West Africa. We will publish the new crowdfunding page and stories on our Facebook pages (Kiran Kreer / Voyage Of Light) soon.

Thank you and warm hugs for all those who supported me on this journey so far and I hope more will keep supporting us as we begin the social works here in West Africa. New updates and project details will be posted on the social media page too.

Love & Light,

Kiran Kreer

Dear friends, as I move slowly further south into West Africa, I wonder how will this be possible? With thousand of kilometres to travel by land, villages to seek, communities to meet and projects to start. I have many challenges ahead, many things to work out and the same time making sure the solar lights and basic needs reach the families here too.

A friend ask me a few days ago, why are you doing this? What's my reason? That's a difficult question to answer, as for why I live this path of life or why this project. I guess the short answer is my journey brought me here. It's what I'm passionate about. I cannot just keep travelling knowing that there are those I cross path with less or nothing. Those who live with no basic needs, no electricity or even a proper shelters. These are people too. With real lives like you and me. They need to be empowered too.

How can I just do nothing, while I live among them? While we know about the issues and how hard life is for them. Maybe that's my why. I don't know. What I do know is that I am here in their homes, communities and lands now. This is what we can do for them while we learn their cultures and needs. With what we know, understand and have experience with. This is how we can give back. It becomes a purpose somehow.

So if you feel you have a little to give too, to help empower this project and mission, to help donate few solar lights, donate as little you can, it will help us too. We can then put ideas together and our energy into this social projects and aiding these communities. Those who are truly are in need.

We still need funds for solar lights & social projects (South Senegal & Gambia). We have funds for only 88 solar lights for now, with 412 more to go! Each solar light cost US$15.00 (MYR60). You can choose to send a gift of light or donate any amount you wish to. Every little support matters so we can keep going.

I hope more of the tribe, explorers, fellow creators, artist, and magic souls will get involved with this movement, with as little that you can give, $5, $10 or $15 is what we wish for, we will soon have the 5000 lights for Africa, in no time. We wish to raise this funds with the collective community, rather than bigger amounts from a few people. The project is not just to raise the total funds with one sponsor, but a movement to bring more of us together and closer into this giving spaces.

So help me get this crowdfunding momentum going among travellers and friends, with smaller amounts, give $2.00 if you wish too, as long as you take part and share this voyage with us.

regards,

Kiran

Made it to Berlin! After a long day walking in the 3c cold, with backpacks, trains and finally car pooling, 8 hours passed with a stranger driving us, we made it into the heart of Berlin.

This will be a short update as I will now rest on a sofa that has been calling me, and prepare myself for this space.

We are here now, to meet friends, start more talks and gatherings, and set our path towards bringing light into Africa. Before that happens, I am preparing the official page, Voyage Of Light, so my next updates, short stories and adventures will be posted there. So come follow us.

Little by little, it's happening now, a new mission and path, but things are different now, it's more than just a project about solar lights...

Just two days ago I was in a capital city, Kuala Lumpur, with concrete buildings, construction work and rush hours. From a city where I grew up, nine thousand kilometres away and four flights later, I find myself in the urban sailing town. Nested in the southwest coast of Finland, 160km from Helsinki, my new home Turku.

It's been two days now, and I finally feel like I'm here. My soul has arrived in Europe, with a beautiful family of friends, welcoming me with an apple tree in our backyard, Irina making morning coffee and feeling the cold autumn winds. Yes it's cold here, winds from the coastal city but I will get use to it. Also I realised, I may have forgotten to bring a jacket along, but Seila and I will be heading to a thrift store to get a used one. She says it will cost about 10 euros.

Day one in Finland, I woke up in this strange town, went out to feel the warm sun, dark blue skies, with this new inner feeling of life, a magical nature around me, so green and so blissful. An apple tree as my shade, it was a strange experience just eating apples of this tree. But it made me feel like I'm finally made it into a home I always dreamt about.

My journey across Europe has begun. Soon I’ll be sharing more stories and tales of those I meet.
