GHANA a dream come true

Hello beloved friend,

How are you doing today? We hope that your week has started off in the best way possible. Amsterdam has not shown its best side these past two days with constant rain. So today we are hiding the rains with warm mint teas at one of our favorite coffee bars meanwhile we are working. At the moment we have an overload of work and planning to do. A lot of things are going on as you might know and we have been quite busy lately which also has its reasons. We are feeling very inspired and excited about our up-coming projects and feel its about time to share our exhilaration also with you! 🙂

First we want to begin by saying that we never ever thought that we would be where we are now. Our lifestyle transformation going raw vegans just some months ago have opened up new doors for us and we are still amazed how everything has unfolded with such a great timing. For us this is the realization of our dreams. We are not just connecting with so many loving people worldwide but our new healthy lives have also led to other positive things. Our new clean lifestyles have made us more conscious and we are always looking for healthy food choices. In the early spring an idea came to us about sundried tropical fruits. We started to play with the idea to have our own brand and production of sundried tropical fruits and we got so into it that we could not leave this idea behind. Instead we started to talk about our ideas with people. For some magic reasons we happened to talk to the right people with the right contacts at the right time. So here we are setting up our own sundried mango production in Ghana! Is not this universe simply amazing?! Dream. Believe. Receive.

In mid-July we will be going to Ghana to initiate a first pilot project. During this process we also want to incorporate you in our jorney we are undertaking so that you will be able to follow what is going on out in the field. It is so easy to forget but there is always an individual behind every bite of food we eat in the western world. We want to give the often forgotten farmers in remote areas in the world attention. The farming and in our case mango is their livelihood and they put a lot of effort and love into it. Sadly they donnot get sufficient income for it and barely make it to go around. Our sundried mango project will support community development and is a step to take farmers out of poverty. The farmers are waiting for us and we cannot wait to go there to get this started for real!

What do you think? Are you as excited as we are? 😀 New adventures are around the corner and we are thrilled to have you on our journey as well! There is so much love to be spread in our world.

Therefore, today´s powerful words by Howard Thurman goes perfectly with our main purpose, to Live our Dreams and Breathe our Passion:

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

With all our love,
Julie & Katrin

  4. Jaaaa, jeg er super excited 😀 Elsker dette prosjektet, og synes ideen er helt fantastisk! Dessuten vet jeg at dere kommer til å lykkes så utrolig bra med det, for dere er bare den type mennesker som lykkes! ❤ (Helt klart på grunn av måten dere tenker og lever på!)
    Synes det også er kjempefint at dere tenker helhetlig på det (elsker helhet ;)), og at dette også skal være bra for bøndene og arbeiderene i Ghana som blir med på prosjektet.
    Jeg gleder meg til å få følge med videre, og til å få smake den deilige mangoen deres. Til og med min favorittfrukt 😀
    Håper dere har en kjempefin kveld, selv i kulden. Solen kommer nok snart tilbake til dere også<3

Vi ser så fram emot att dela allt med dig och berätta hur det går till och allt vi får uppleva på vägen. Många kramar vackra du!

  5. Åhhh vad kul!! Vad fantastiskt att ni har en större och djupare mening med ert arbete. Att lyfta andra och verkligen ge benefits to the farmer. MY god!!!! You must be really proud over yourselves. Det är svårt att föreställa sig vad det är som ska göras haha, antar att det är en massa administrativt.
    Cool idé tjejer 🙂 Har varit nyfiken på ert projekt, så kul att höra. Hur kommer det sig att ni valde Ghana?


    • Tack så mycket Nadia för dina fina ord och din stöttning! Det betyder en massa ska du veta. Vi ser så fram emot att dela allt med dig och berätta hur allt går till bakom kulisserna 😉 Vår huvudsakliga poäng är att hjälpa andra och kan vi göra det genom att skapa goda snacks som folk runt i världen kan avnjuta så är det bara WIN-WIN! Det är en hel del administrativt etc men allt är värt det när vi vet vad vår dröm är 🙂 Vi valde Ghana för Julie var där förra året och lärde känna en hel del bra kontakter och genom dessa har vi lyckats få fler involverade, att det helt enkelt finns inget annat att göra än att KÖRA! Vi berättar mer när allt rullar på sakta men säkert. Många kramar fina du!

  6. You girls are so awesome and inspiring! The world totally needs more people like you and the positive energy you spread♥

  7. For et fantastisk prosjekt 😀 Jeg er stolte av dere allerede! Dere er to flinke jenter!! Tørka mango er jo så utrolig godt, men det spiser jeg såå utrolig sjeldent siden det er ofte tilsatt sukker, eller veldig dyrt. But I love it ❤ Såå gøy, gleder meg til å følge dere når det gjelder prosjektet. Og det er jo så bra at prosjektet støtter lokalbefolkninga der 😀 Klem<3

    • Tack så hemkst mycket Marie! Det betyder hur mycket som helst ska du veta. Mer än du tror! Vi ser fram emot att dela allt med dig och visa hur det går till bakom kulisserna så att säga. Vårt huvudsakliga mål är att stötta lokalbefolkningen och göra gott, kan vi dessutom göra ett fantastiskt gott snack som folk runt omkring i världen kan avnjuta så är det WIN-WIN! Tack för dina fina ord och att du delar med dig av dina tankar. Många kramar vackra du!
