"The little shoeshine" a book which sponsors Enfants d'Asie
Kim is a little boy. He works for grumpy Mr Tran, a mean old man who uses the poor children of Hanoi to make as much money as possible for himself. It’s the monsoon season and Kim is wandering the streets of the city clutching his shoe cleaning box. The steamy heat is so oppressive that the last thought on people’s minds is wearing shoes. Empty-handed, he makes his way back to the shop, but his life is turned upside-down after a very strange meeting at the side of Lake Hoan Kiem.

Sur la couverture du magazine posé sur le bureau, il y a la photo d'un jeune garçon à la peau caramel, barrée de traits noirs. Une couronne de fines plumes jaunes lui donne un air royal. Dimitri est captivé par le visage du jeune amérindien Kayapo. Il l'observe, intrigué et curieux à la fois lorsqu'il commence à percevoir les sentiments de cet étranger qui lui parle et l'appelle à son secours. Dimitri bouleversé décide de venir en aide à ce jeune amérindien d'Amazonie. Mais comment ? Qui contacter ?

Un roman jeunesse décrivant avec beaucoup de réalisme la vie d'une tribu Kayapos et l'impact des humains sur de la forêt amazonienne entraînant de graves conséquences sur l'avenir de notre planète et les tribus amérindiennes. Cette fiction est suivie d'un dossier pédagogique sur l'Amazonie, les tribus amérindiennes et la richesse de la faune et la flore ainsi que des documents sur la déforestation.

Ce roman a pour vocation de soutenir les tribus amérindiennes d'Amazonie afin que ces peuples soient respectés dans leur cadre de vie naturel. En achetant ce bel ouvrage, tu apportes ta contribution puisque l'éditeur reverse 15 % des recettes des ventes à l'association Jabiru Prod, dirigée par Serge Guiraud qui met en place un projet d'aide aux tribus amérindiennes tel que le projet Alapi.

Projet Alapi :

Le projet Alapi est destiné en priorité à la jeune génération amérindienne qui soumise à l'influence de la société moderne renonce à poursuivre le mode de vie ancestral. Ce projet a pour ambition de revitaliser et revaloriser le patrimoine culturel par l'apprentissage de l'artisanat traditionnel, l'enseignement des langues natives et l'utilisation de la photographie et de la vidéo pour enregistrer les moments de la vie quotidienne. La sélection des groupes amérindiens est effectuée en fonction des contacts que Jabiru Prod entretient avec les représentants des tribus et de leur volonté de relever le défi qui consiste à maintenir leur richesse culturelle.

En 2007, le Projet Alapi débute avec un centre de formation dans le Parc Xingu ( Mato Grosso ), le tournage d'un film sur le rituel Itsatxi et l'achat d'un appareil photo pour la tribu Karaja. Durant trois mois, onze professeurs amérindiens ont enseigné aux jeunes Mehinakos et Yalawapitis la vannerie, la plumasserie, le modelage de la céramique et la langue aruak. Un membre de Jabiru Prod a formé deux Yawalapitis aux techniques de la prise de vue de la vidéo...

Seuls les Amérindiens décident des actions à mettre en place dans leurs villages et de la sélection de leurs professeurs.

Kim is a little
boy. He works for grumpy Mr Tran, a mean old man who uses the poor children of
Hanoi to make as much money as possible for himself. It’s the monsoon season
and Kim is wandering the streets of the city clutching his shoe cleaning box. The
steamy heat is so oppressive that the last thought on people’s minds is wearing
shoes. Empty-handed, he makes his way back to the shop, but his life is turned
upside-down after a very strange meeting at the side of Lake Hoan Kiem.

A beautiful story that
combines a Vietnamese legend with the reality of child poverty.

Illustrated book in PDF format
for 6 year olds and over.

Dominique Curtiss and
Chouetteditions.com are involved in a project to help girls from the poor
villages of the Mekong River stay in education and pursue professional training.
Younger girls are often as not taken out of school to help their parents,
whereas older girls are sent to towns or cities to find work and send money
home. Unfortunately the naivety of these older country girls makes them easy
prey for prostitution rings.

For every book sold, $1 will
be donated to ‘Enfants d’Asie’, an organization dedicated to keeping younger
girls in school and to providing older girls with access to professional
courses.
