Franchisecongress in Berlin/Germany

Waltraud Martius, a real ambassador of Little Flower gave a speach on the German Franchise Congress in Berlin in these days. She was wearing a pink scarf as a sign of Little Flower and more than that she was introducing the project to the audience in connection with Social Franchising. No wonder, that many people left the congress with a colorful message of Little Flower around their neck!

Thank`s Waltraud!

Exhibition in the vaults of afo (University of Art and Design, Linz): discover the model buildings for Little Flower

On Wednesday, July 4, an exhibition of model buildings by four students of architecture of the University of Art and Design of Linz ( was opened and will close on July 20, 2012.

The exhibits are model buildings that were created in the course of one term as answer to all the questions and tasks the students were confronted with during their field trip to Little Flower, India, in February. The results are incredibly impressive and the committment shown by these four students, who each chose one project, is fantastic.

Felix Ganzer: enlarged living space

Iris Noebauer: a new weaving complex

Sebastian Vilanek: teachers’ quarters for the new teachers at the English Medium School

Jomo Zeil: new stables according to modern standards of livestock housing

Through the support of their teachers, especially that of Prof. Roland Gnaiger and Clemens Quirin/BASEhabitat, the best in these students has been brought out and has allowed their energy and committment and expertise to rise to a wonderful work of art!

In autumn the realisation of the projects is to begin. That’s why Sebastian and I will fly to Little Flower for a week at the end of July to be of help in the village with the coordination and synchronisation of the plans and carry out important preparatory steps. Besides, we are urgently on the look out for sponsors. Our charity concert in Mattsee on August 16 promises to become a joyful, original evening, all as a contribution to the building project. Some businesses have already agreed to donate tools, containers or the financing of workmen, all of which greatly increases our confidence in this project. Full power ahead!

For Little Flower itself this cooperation and this transfer of know-how will lead to a new era: in the course of the construction works men and women will be trained in various skills and crafts which they will be able to use as an income basis for themselves and for Little Flower in the future. Modern ways and techniques of mudbrick constructions will offer locals new possibilities of using a traditional building material that reacts best to the greatly varying temperatures in the course of a year.

In my vision Little Flower will turn out the first solar engineers in the region, workers familiar with modern mudbrick techniques and thus make Little Flower a centre for modern architecture in Bihar. It will comfortably fit into the landscape and proudly present sustainable building methods.

This is the proper answer to the change in generation that is occuring at present, after 30 years of project building. It offers new and exciting perspectives to the young generation.

Be part of the process! Keep in touch!
