At Mt. Fuji in Japan, Enigma Filmes had the opportunity to work together with Konohana Family, an incredible eco-village. They mix ancient traditions with modern environmental and social activism. The stark contrast between upholding traditions and being conscious of modern environmental science was very strong but both values mixed in their respect of the lands. The interactions with the kids were so moving and exciting.
One of the most inspiring and touching stories we found for Child of Nature was in Lebanon, in a refugee camp. Two girls, Baara and Nejmeh, were teaching the younger children in the camp. This experience resulted in a global campaign. Children from over 15 countries united to build a school in the camp so these girls, and their students, can access proper education.
In Kenya, Enigma Filmes had an amazing experience, bringing slum children from Nairobi, Kenya on a trip to discover the interior part of Kenya and the Savannah. The result of this experience was a powerful interaction between the Maasai Maara children and the slum kids in Nairobi where they exchanged their knowledge of photography and environmental conservation. The children from Nairobi also presented a photo exhibition in the Savannah, and 300 local Maasai Maara students attended.
