In the UK, the days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and people are being told to think about a joyful period of togetherness during Christmas. Instead, many people here are instead thinking about the pressure of high energy bills, domestic abuse, food poverty, isolation, illness, and loneliness. This month I have written new articles and features on resilience, homelessness, and migration, and I am preparing for the great british walkabout, where I hope to help people who are homeless, or struggling to cope with life, by giving them a higher purpose, and walking the length of britain with me. I’ll keep you updated on the start date. Have a peaceful day. Alan

The Ariana Project is dedicated to working for the benefit of all, to educate, to inspire, to challenge, to create, to listen, and to help anyone in need.
The Ariana Project is a global project with a broad remit, which goes far beyond the realms of a registered charity hence we will not be registered with any government agency as we do not want to be limited in our activities to a narrow spectrum.
Contrary to what you may think, Alan and The Ariana Project are not “anti government” and indeed share many of the same goals, but at a level not attainable by an organisation who has to please everybody and constantly make policy decisions in order that they are re elected every 4 years.
The Ariana Project recognises that short term ambitions can never work, but fortunately we don’t have to please shareholders or voters so we are in it for the long haul. It has taken thousands of years to get to where we are now, and won’t be fixed in the term of one parliament!
It is also worth noting that if governments were the solution to the constant turmoil humanity is in, there would be no need for the ariana project!
It does not make the project any less charitable however, as the founding principles are that everything is important, and everyone is important. Above all, the principle of “no one left behind” applies at all times.
Many people have commented that in order to make a difference you must focus on one area,or one community, but it is the project’s belief that nothing exists in isolation and everything is in relationship, hence we must look at the whole, and by analysing root causes, define a better way forward for all, whilst helping make the world a better place, one thought, one person, and one day at a time.
