Support Collaborative Community Projects for health and sustainability in a rural village of Kenya, Africa. 'Asante sana' many thanks, your donations 'big' & 'small' all add up and are greatly appreciated. We are one village

 

They call the 'Rift Valley' the Home of Humanity. But these sacred lands, rich with spiritual depth and cultural diversity need our help. This October we will travel back to the village in Kenya to work collaboratively with local people to co-create a healthy, sustainable community and perpetuate the preservation and celebration of culture

 

The Permaculture Research Institute in Kenya (PRI-Kenya) will be doing 5 days of training and implementation to help educate our locals in the wonders of organic farming and integrated livestock management. These workshops will be hands-on, providing beneficial experiential learning and empowerment in action. For an area that has insufficient food supply 10 months of the year, it is hoped that these methods will substantially improve food security, enhance the ecological systems that support people and eradicate malnutrition

 

Last year when visiting the local school we saw that over 1000 children had to share 2 soccer balls! One for the girls and one for the boys. The main thing that the boys wanted, (apart from becomming doctors and politicians "to help the community"), were more footballs. The girls asked for a sewing machine. We hope to fulfill these requests on this next trip.

The fundraising goal to complete these projects is $7,700. The 'tipping point' that will enable us to complete these projects (in their first stages) is $3,500

Cost Breakdown:

PRI-Kenya training and implementation $1300

Seeds and seedlings $250

Food for participants (25 ppl 5 days) $250

Tools $120

Chicken Tractor ($150 x2) $300

It is our Common Unity as people on this planet that entwines us in community and connectedness. Our blood, sweat, tears, tummy rumbles, smiles, laughter are all the same. Yet some still suffer more than others in unnecessary ways. Let your humanity shine and donate today to empower people, your brothers and sisters, out of poverty. Thanks.
