The "One World" dance workshop was active also this year. Friends from Germany, Lithuania and Latvia came to Belarus to join us in the dance project.
The 2nd house had to be rebuilt in order to have more space for sleeping, meeting and practicing the dances. We also built a banja, a Russian sauna, for everyone to enjoy.
Whether summer or winter, in Smol'e there's always a lot to experience! The local country life, the work with the children from the neighbor village, the practice with Chris, the summer programs with the friends from Belarus and Germany. It's the friends' spirit that attracts everyone and lets them remember those moments as special.
Our family left a big part of our heart in Belarus. For many years this beautiful country used to be our home, many special moments have shaped us, the desire to share good with the people gave us joy.
The words of Bahà'u'llàh "The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens" have shaped us. The time and the world situation are constantly changing, more and more we see that tolerance and understanding for each other become essential parts of our lives. Serving the Baha'i Faith in Belarus helped us understand Bahà'u'llàh's teachings and implement them in our lives.
