Culture : (n) how people act, eat, speak,

It is easier to define culture than Culture. There isn't an appropriate way to explain what we want to accomplish through Culture in the English Language.

Use your imagination for a second. Walk in the front door. In front of you, there is a shop with curios from across the world. African carving depicting the people in ebony wood, the white soap stone sometimes painted with the Tinga-tinga art native to Tanzania, colorful kangas from all over Africa which may be called by other names. These and so many other things are avaiable. To your right is a counter where a representative handling the purchases and another handling gemstones from international suppliers. Here you can purchase Tanzanite, Garnets, Diamonds or other stones. Now you have two choices, one is straight ahead; the other is up a staircase or elevator. Upstairs is a research area for studies and discussions. This is the Library area. Literature and cultural information are available here. Guest speakers come to speak in the amphitheater area. Instead of theater seating, there are tables and chairs where people can read or study when the theater isn't in use. There is a librarian to assist in this area sitting behind a counter by the stairs. Beneath the library is the museum /showroom. This area is divided into three parts. To the left is the showroom, where local artist can show their own work. The center hall is the permanent exhibits, things to be shown from around the world. The far right hall is the special exhibit room. Usually Culture's own exibits will be shown here, other times visiting exhibits will occupy this room. The purpose of culture will not be financial gain. Yes, there will be money coming in from the curio and gemstone sales, but any profit will be a gift from God. 10-15% of all profits will be given to charitable organizations such as Orphans or missionaries. To put it directly, the purpose of culture will be to help people.
