Out of the newfound time freedom through our work with living water came lots of introspection and outrospection.
We see what WE need.
We see what the WORLD needs.
And we aim to bring them both together.
We all feel it, we all see it.
We are not blind, nor stupid.
We are good hearted people who are passionate about the environment and care about the well-being of All.
We see the need.
Although many of us lack either;
⚡The Energy or
to be able to do what we KNOW needs to be done.
We aim to shed light on some of the limiting beliefs we see in the society that we live in.
To open up for a broader perspective so we can give ways for people to be able to take action and be the change.
To share new ways of thinking and operating that will not only be sustainable for the environment and the future, but also for the individuals who choose to be a part of the movement and align with the mission.
The mission is to heal the world.
From the Inside --> Out.
It starts with US!
We will share how we create the time, energy and resources needed.
We no longer have time to cut ourselves off from either abundance or responsibility.
🌎 Earth is calling.
Will you answer?
Finished and ongoing projects
Building a forest in India
A collaborational project with the deeply passionate "Treeman". For every new active member in Paradise Restoration Movement we are planting 100 trees on this land.
We have built a huge insect city that we are going to keep on expanding. On Eco Agroforestry Center in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Fruit forest in Småland, Sweden.
We are building a fruit forest for biodiversity and for our members of PRM. For every new active member one fruit tree is planted here.
Super Adobe house
We are building a Super Adobe house in collaboration the organisation Planta Panta Tree. On Eco Agroforestrys land in Sweden.
Paradise Restoration Movement Southern Africa
Building a well in Zimbabwe + forestry education and planting.
Takesure Matewa is the Project Còordinator working under Paradise Restoration Movement Southern Africa.
As a Movement we work mainly towards Environmental Awareness education, Community Social Development Projects and Nature and Environment Preservation, Rehabilitation and protection programs.
We go around educating citizens mainly those from remote and underdeveloped communities around the world through our websites, social media pages and groups and where possible direct interaction about self sustaining projects, protection of the environment and nature,biodiversity, and Community Social Development projects .
Recently we identified a village of 300 residents in rural Zimbabwe called Shangwe Village.
We found out that the villagers mainly women, the elderly and children were facing a big problem in terms of accessing clean drinking water as espoused in the SDG Sustainable Development Goal number 6 whose mission statement is to ensure availability of sustainable water management and sanitation for all.
We found out that children as young as primary school going children, women,and the elderly have to travel a long way to the nearest source of clean drinking water on a daily basis.
We came up with a solution to help solve the problem by doing a data survey and fact finding meeting with the residents of the village.
The results of the survey and our successful stakeholder meetings showed that there was really an urgent need for
1- Drilling a permanent and easily accessible source of clean water for domestic and /agricultural use .
2- Residents needed Environmental Awareness education on how to help them understand how to take care of the well and also from destroying nearby forests that plays a big role in the water cycle and water conservation, Part of the solution to this includes a follow up project of planting more trees of diverse species with the people in the area, fruit trees for food and indigenous and exotic trees they can later use for firewood as they all sorely depend on Flu Cured Tobacco which requires chopping down of many trees for it to be cured properly in their drying barns.
This project will help towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal number 6 if other global citizens can also do the same wherever they operate from.
We started the planning and mapping of the project in the beginning of September this year and are now during winter time focusing on the actualization of the resources that is needed, we are gathering resources through an online fundraising, through events, through our personal facebook groups etc.
Duplicability - Since PRM is "The members movement" anyone that is an active member of PRM can duplicate this project with our (the founders of PRM) support and guidance. We stand for simplicity and work with what we have there and then and create realistic project and action plans how to get what we need to actualize the projects. We also help people who wants to duplicate this with how they can do it professionally and realistically.
We believe that we should not only do good projects and leave it there, to create a sustainable future, education is a must. Therefore we want to engage both the youth and their parents in the projects we are doing. The youth are our future and we see so many parents today that gets inspired by their children's natural passion for nature, that is why we want to bring the youth into our project in a fun yet educational way.
For the start off on our project, called, "Part 1" where the well comes in, our project goal is to raise about €4000, it is hard to know exactly how much we need since you never know how the ground looks like before you drill the well. If there are big rocks, more recourses is needed. If it would be money over after the drilling, this would go to creating a vegetation planting project with the youth and their parents.
Part 2 is developing educational programs around how to take care of the well, and start from that point and spread out to teach how they can grow food with natural fertilizers in their area, teach them about trees and the relationship between trees and water etc.
We are going to do this project with our collaborational partner Planta Panta Tree International, they are experienced in this area and have already done similair successful projects. PRM and PPTIs visions goes hand in hand. With our many volunteers, founders and coordinators like our knowledgeable Takesure Matewa from PRM we can actualize it and with the long experience and knowledge from PPTI we can make it successful long term.
Since PRM is still only a movement and not a registered trust (it is in the process of registration) we will do all the fundraising, donations and investments through PPTI that is a registered organization.
Educational programs for the Shangwe Village and spread out will be developed winter 2021 and jan, feb 2022.
Fundraising to the well is starting October 2021 for real but have already started unofficially.

More are in the making!
Anyone within Paradise Restoration Movement that is an active member can take a decision to start their own project in PRMs name. They will get support, coaching and help as much as it is possible.
