  • Beschreibung


    Greetings from Oyugis Kenya,
    We are couples, Raymond and Jacky, we are blessed with 3 boys called Allan Raymond, Keith Raymond and Luke Raymond. We live in Western Kenya and as a community leader our mission is to bring Organic permaculture to my region. We are a community of small farmers facing changing weather patterns, low investment and relative isolation.

    The learning and connection we have experienced already by being involved in organic permaculture has been transforming and my dream now is to build on that by becoming a qualified and experienced permaculture teacher myself.

    My husband Raymond left our county for the first time late last year 2016 to study permaculture design at LAIKIPIA with teachers from PRI KENYA; this was a life changing experience for him !We are already teaching and sharing the ideas in our community near Lake Victoria and our ambition is to become a better and more effective teacher.

    when he came back from the PDC we managed to mobilize the community members and formed a CBO (Community Based Organization) it is run by 8 volunteers and our focus is to develop a working organic farm that not only provides organic food but aid in the education of farmers in organic practices and the importance of clean and safe drinking water source.

    The importance of Organic Permaculture education in communities is measured not just in the creation of clean food but in the creation of community. People naturally gather around water and food and it is the base of all civilizations and a clear path to the future is created in the process.

    When communities are provided with opportunities to work together creating food and water security it offers so much more because of the healing power that comes for feeding ourselves and our families. The practice also removes many fears of the future and of course clean water is key to all of this. The truth is that when there is clean water there is life and when that source is contaminated the project itself becomes impossible.

    We know that no human being is useless thus all community members are included regardless of sex, age, race and status.

    The most marginalized groups of people like the orphans, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWAS) and the old are all catered for in this project.

    We have been working tiresomely with our volunteers both locally and internationally, planting our small food forest, planting sweet potatoes, kales, cowpeas and local vegetables. We are always updating our supporters with pictures in every step we make. We also do outreach program where we go to the villages to train groups of people on organic Farming.

    Permaculture teaches how to learn from nature to build resilient systems that are more than sustainable; they regenerate degraded lands and also help build community. These are exactly the kinds of help we need in Africa now and our aim is to create a beacon of hope, inspiration and learning for our brothers and sisters in Kenya and around the world.

    We are again still in the lookout of people like you to kindly help us transform our community, in return we will certainly be grateful but more importantly we will be determined to reach out to and share this experience with as many people as we can.
