Once Upon an Eden is an international global entity of networking individuals, families, communities, not-for-profit organizations, NGOs, education centers, schools, orphanages and micro businesses from around the world that promote and protect the rights of children, fathers, mothers and families within their own communities.
Where Did the Name "Once Upon an Eden" come from?
The name Once Upon an Eden is inspired by the verses Genesis 3:7-8 which reads as follows:
"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed life into man's nostrils and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man that he formed." It is our belief at Once Upon an Eden that Mankind was to live in the most beautiful, natural, life affirming environment as possible and it is Mankind's responsibility to help that environment to continue to thrive so that we too may thrive.
