  • Beschreibung


    It is a local project of an association in Senegal. Kafountine is a village in coastal are of Casamance region. It is a restaurant and Eco Kids Centre, where we teach kids about environmental issues, by using the permaculture principles and trying to apply 4 dimensions of Gaia education learning: economical, social, ecocogical and worldview.
    We have a garden behind the restaurant, in the centre of the village, where we practise permaculture with local kids, and also attracts other people and raise awareness about sustainable practises.
    At evening we organize cultural events with local live music, playing traditional instruments (like djembe).
    Part of my project is also ecotourism, so in future I plan to organize excursions to islands in Casamance, to see mangroves, to visit communities of Karong islands, traditional fishermen's villages.
