The second edition of the Mother Earth Festival ‘Breathe, reborn and reconnect’ has raised 3,786’76 euros that will go to the charity ‘Aztívate and Siente Gambia’.
More than 1,200 attended the two day festival that was held in the Natural Area of Rio Seco in Pinar de Campoverde where activities included workshops of dance, music, meditation, yoga, taichi and many more. In addition, participants could spend time walking through the hippy market or regaining their strength in the area of food trucks. The children could also enjoy a wide range of games and activities with supervisors.
The main objective of the festival was to promote the values of respect towards Mother Earth, to teach the benefits of a healthy diet, to reconnect with oneself and to become aware of the ‘here and now’.
The total sum raised during the two day event was 3,786’76 euros which will be used entirely for projects that will be carried out in Turkana and The Gambia by the charities Aztivate Valencian Community and Feel Gambia.
Both organisations say that they are most appreciative of the assistance and cooperation of Pilar de la Horadada and the Department of Tourism that allows this venture to carry out projects for creating employment opportunities, agricultural development, and improvements in education and in health.
