    I am Erick, the director of our community project. I am the last born in a family of four boys, am married to one wife and have one beautiful baby girl named Anna.

    Our mission is to empower the young generation, orphans, widows, and the youths through organic farming and permaculture.

    We are on the lookout for volunteers to take part in our community based projects. We are currently dealing in empowering the community by teaching them about sustainable farming, exploring and practicing sustainable agriculture.

    These are some of our projects:
    1. Empowering the widows, orphans, disabled and vulnerable people in our community.
    2. Organic farming and permaculture
    3. Creating Awareness about Technology, HIV/AIDS, STDs & COVID-19

    Our permaculture farm
    We have a young and promising food forest and we intend to use it teach the widows, orphans, disabled and the vulnerable about food security and importance of nutrition. We have structures such as banana circles, keyhole garden, and a small fish pond.

    Widows and orphans
    We teamed up with the group members in 2015 and have been taking care of 10 orphans, 5 widows and over 20 vulnerable people in Kothidha Village. Over the years, we have provided them with food, clothes and financial support an in return gave them the opportunity to learn several life skills from our garden.

    This project started in 2012 with a mission of promoting sustainability and community independence through farming teaching life skills and creating opportunity for each and every member of the community. Through organic farming and permaculture we also hope to eradicate poverty within our community and even beyond.

    We are based in Kenya, South Nyanza, Homa Bay County, Rangwe Sub-County, Kothidha. We highly welcome volunteers to visit our project and help our members to share knowledge and interact with our communities.

    We are looking forward to a community where every willing member can learn and take a little risk that can help them become independent through permaculture Innovation, organic farming and Technology to facilitate an open-source approach to learning permaculture.

    We welcome all volunteers to take part in our projects to create a change that will in due time spread to the whole world.
