    Beschreibung

    We are an International NGO working to establish food security through indigenous food forestry and water conservation with the Samburu people. We train local people in tree planting and tree care and plant indigenous food producing trees with them around their homes. The organization established a training and demonstration center in Samburu county in north Kenya where we also host the volunteers.

    Our organization started its operations in 2012 and is a very long-term sustainable development project. We are not involved in any short-term relief work or providing immediate aid.

    We enjoy 100% whole-food vegan meals. We do our best to source organic/local food where possible.

    We are a non-profit ecological project that does not generate any income. Therefore, we cannot afford to provide free food for volunteers.  The total cost of food per person is 600 Kenya Shillings (KES) per day, around 6 USD.
    Please bring with you 600 KES x number of days that you wish to stay. We can occasionally accept USD or Euros; Please check ahead.

    We are very concerned with peaceful living and sustainability. We find that a vegan diet and lifestyle best supports these ideals. This means that, inside the organization, we only eat plant-based foods, food not from animals nor from animal products. That means no: meat, eggs, milk, cheese, butter, curd, yogurt, honey, or any other foods that come from animals. The consumption of animal products is the largest contributing factor to deforestation in the world and we don’t want to reforest with our hands while we are deforesting with our mouths!

    We warmly welcome volunteers any time of the year, and always have available space for them.

    Our experience with volunteers has been very positive. Volunteers from all over the world create a dynamic community atmosphere. Living and sharing in a communal atmosphere brings us in harmony with nature and with ourselves. One of our volunteers put it very nicely in her letter to us when she left, “May there be many forests to grow people.”

    In addition to planting/monitoring trees and water conservation works, we have projects within our campus such as a goshala (cow sanctuary), cob construction, permaculture-designed demonstration plots, and developing appropriate technologies. Also, we have daily support tasks such as cooking, cleaning, compost toilet maintenance, and general upkeep of our campus. Your tasks will also depend on the season and the skills you have.  Please be prepared to help wherever needed.
