Collaborating with AMA Girafe- a French Ikebana Adventure for Children Worldwide

For the past few months, I have been working on a collaboration with AMA Girafe to create an Ikebana Adventure for French speaking primary school children, both internationally and here in Belgium.


AMA Girafe is a not-for-profit organisation, linking French speaking schools across many African nations, France, and Belgium. The aim of the organistion is to unify children across cultures and break down socio-economic divides. AMA’s goal of empowering children through education, whilst encouraging them to develop a deeper affinity with nature, resonates with my own approach to children’s education.    


Last week, AMA Girafe’s first Ikebana Adventure was launched to over 7 000 schools, across two continents. Through AMA Girafe the opportunity to engage with nature through ikebana is now available to children from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. AMA Girafe enables these children to engage with one another, sharing their experiences, knowledge, and excitement as they explore the natural world around them.  


Empowering and unifying children from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds is a measure of the strength of Sofu Teshigahara’s adage that Sogetsu Ikebana can be studied by anyone, anywhere.
