After 8 Weeks experience to establish in my “home port” in James Town Harbor were the story began in 2001 with a whole days fishing with 5 fishermen without language communication… shows in beginning enthusiastic welcome and 9 weeks promises from the ebony’s side without doing anything at all. We ended that fruitless experiment one day after I celebrated my birthday with 84 happy children and 30 parents a 5 story cake and fish delicatessens that I caught myself from midnight to 9 o clock.

We met open minded and real interested boat constructor with organized structure. All the chiefs get next Friday an introduction in the vast packet of the project and I discussed very interested many suggestions, where the fisherman can improve even the performances of their canoes.
5. There is space for a Boat Ship Yard with a locked area is a secure place for all the machine tools.

7. Now the project is nailed, as well for the ship yard, + the Esperanto large scale teaching program is on track. To teach the illiterate to get them out of poverty is in progress. The impact of support depends on the reaction on our “call for teaching large scale to the illiterate in Africa” unto he audience of the Esperanto congress in Copenhagen at 28/29.July.

8. Trip to the Mediterranean Sea to have a look at how poor fisher villages turned to wealth environments as Monaco, Nice, San Remo
9. Our long lasting ream, to visit the Esperanto University in San Marino, founded on an initiative of scientists from various countries, such as Helmar Frank, Humphrey Tonkin, and Reinhard Selten. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akademio_Internacia_de_la_Sciencoj_San... http://www.ais-sanmarino.org/
We believe also that it can become the ignition for a widespread teaching fire for Esperanto, all over Africa. And the difficult question about a unifying language may Inshalah solve the un-acknowledged as the illiterate majority in Africa but as fundamentally and unprejudiced and spiritual man may determine Africans destiny. With intellectual Europeans such an enterprise would be impossible to carry out!
