Maria Abe & Toshiya Abe in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico
Maria Abe and Toshiya Abe
Toshiya is originally from Osaka, Japan. After he studied to become a cameraman he went to Montreal, Canada. There he met Ana Maria, from Mexico, both were studying English for a short time, what a coincidence! They were living in Japan for several years and they had one boy and one girl. Now they are living in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. He is working for a Japanese company and she is a Spanish teacher for foreigners. Toshi is now so happy to film all the activities about Six Billion Paths to Peace. In Leon the Six Billion Paths to Peace group, basically are families with children between 4 to 17 and youth from 18 to 29 years old. They are very enthusiastic, and like to serve others, especially if they are with their family and friends. They organize and participate in activities that help the environment like “Ojo de Agua”. “Ojo de Agua” is a project they have organized to keep a local lake clean and free of litter. They are also a part of a government program to help to plant trees in different parts of their city. They volunteer at the Regional Hospital and share food and drinks with people who are patients there. They also organized an event in their church and to celebrate children’s day with a pantomime show. We still have many ideas and want to help and collaborate with love, service and heart, this is our PATH TO PEACE.
