"It is not enough these days to sit and watch as the world struggles to survive. It is our duty, our responsibility to take our future in our hands. We have the knowledge, we have the resources, we have the ability. We are all here to service one another and cannot be successful without the love and support of our brothers and sisters. The power of the universe lies within all of us. The ability to heal ourselves and the world is innately present within every cell of our body. We have just forgotten how to do it. Being in-tune with you is a choice. It is a learning process, much like learning a new language. But, the most amazing thing is that it is OUR language... the language of the universe. The vibration of love, unconditional love, resonates at the highest frequency and the higher our frequency, the healthier we become. A change of heart can be the most powerful tool in our ability to resonate with the universe and become a catalyst for changing the world."
~Dr. Wendy Puchalski, D.C.
NAP Africa Story
The carving artists of the Jabulani Village living outside of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe were once thriving. Village carving artists were known internationally for their one-piece wood carving style creating African animals, particularly giraffes (called Tall Blondes) as tall as 15’. Living in the bush without electricity or running water, carvings were made from African mucwa logs. Hand-held axes and rudimentary tools produced beautiful carvings with intimate details burned into the wood. Before a piece was complete the entire village took part in the process of carving, burning, sanding and oiling them. Their artistry rivaled anything in the region.
The ravages of AIDS, malaria, TB and long-standing political instability in the region has left these villagers unemployed and destitute. Since 2004, art20exporters have deserted the area. In 2005, tourists deserted the area. By 2006 the continuing health crisis took an ever-increasing toll. In 2007 the escalating food crisis caused by a 2200% inflation rate has created additional survival issues. Local artists that remain are joined by a growing number of vulnerable women and children who have little means of support.
NAP is dedicated to sustaining the lives and preserving the artistry and culture of these artists and their families. With a long-term commitment to environmental sustainability, the support of tribal self-sufficiency and the immediate provisions of food, healthcare, education and other services. It is our ultimate goal to help ensure a future of hope and possibility and to return this village to a thriving community of artists who share their talent with the world.
