Das Ziegenprojekt in Lindi / Tansania
(Ethno-)Psychodrama in Tansania mit Klaus Ottomeyer
Auf Initiative der NGOs AfriCarinthia und Chawali war es gelungen, eine finanzielle Unterstützung seitens des Landes Kärnten für ein Ziegenprojekt in Tansania zu erwirken. Etwa 60 ärmere alte Leute aus dem Dorf Kineng´ene, die für mehrere Enkel sorgen, nachdem ihre eigenen Kinder an AIDS gestorben waren oder die Region verlassen hatten, sollten zwei Ziegen bekommen, die ihre Wirtschaftslage verbessern sollen. Das Projekt wurde von Prof. Klaus Ottomeyer und Dr. Helga Mračnikar psychodramatisch unterstützt. Die Filmaufnahmen zum Projekt wurden von Helga Mračnikar durchgeführt.

Ein Bericht über das Fundraisingprojekt für das Morenohaus (auf Englisch)
News about the Moreno-House
In the FEPTO council meeting in May it was stated that the board supports this project and the project group might get money through Soros foundation and others.
The General Assembly asked for the address of the governor of Lower Austria so each FEPTO member could send him a letter and I sent it via email. M. Gasseau said that there is some money in EU for restoration of houses.
In the seven chairs group V. Romek suggested to prepare postcards to the governor of Lower Austria. He will distribute it at their local conference showing that Moreno museum being installed by worldwide psychodrama community. He suggested producing T-shirts, bookmarks and the like. Others suggest raising the fee of an institute membership for 5 to 10 Euros. G. Pinter said the associations should forward that money to the Moreno house account. Also possible is to raise the fee of conferences for 5 to 10 Euros; a certificate could be printed on the back side of the Moreno house brick (print). The project group could even sell “corner stones” for 500 to 1000 Euros and offer two days free of use of Moreno house.
Once more I am working on the statutes of a J.L.Moreno association, at the moment in German because of Austrian burocracy. The aim is to be tax reducible.
The local government of Lower Austria told us that they do not want to buy the house, but if the municipal and federal government will found they will join with a third. Zerka and Joseph Moreno sent a letter to the governor. Representatives of Freud and Jewish museum of Vienna told me that in both cases the municipal bought the house. At the moment the office which safes houses as a monument told that there were changes at the house in the 20th century so it is not possible to safe it.
The Moreno house project was presented at the Sibiu (Romania) Moreno conference and the Suzhou (China) conference of expressive art therapy and psychodrama. Horatiu Nil Albini helped a lot to sell bricks (prints), the Hungarian Association, Zerka Moreno and others did as well.
Vöslau Seminar was great you can read a report of Gabriela Moita in this issue.
New hopes bring Dr. Barbara Krebs (Frankfurt) and Dr. Manfred Drücke (Heidelberg) from Germany, who will donate a lot of money and will find others to do so. Drücke visited Maital 4 with his son who is an architect in Linz, Upper Austria. And new motivation I got from Dr. Dinah Marin-Surkes from Vienna, she knows a lot of politicians. There is also a start with contact to Jewish community of Vienna. Gabriella Pirobon from AIPSIM in Bologna and Marco Greco in Turin (Italy) will try to find industrial sponsors.
