  • Description

    Description

    The group was started in 2006 by young people who realized that, mostly youths and women are found on the dark side of the world and immoral practices because of lack of basic needs to build up their integrity and satisfy their needs.
    We are located in Homabay county ,kasipul constituency, and the village.
    The major activities that we are under taking are, growing horticultural crops for learning, commercial, and for food, Keeping ­čÉŁ for honey and wax, Planting fruits for food and sales to make profits, Raising seedling's for sales and Promoting literacy and heathy matters in the community.
    Some of the objectives are, To improve high living starndards of the community, To ensure maximum utilisation of the available resources, To ensure that all farming activities are done orgarnically within the community, To collaborate and cooperate with any individual, entities and organisation who / which share the same goals and objectives with us and To improve the environment in accordance to the Kenya gorverment of vision 2030.
    The major challenges are that all our activities are not done in one farm, this is because we depends on leased and volunteered Lands. Also Kenya gorverment recently banned the usage of potting tubes and bags and have not brought in an alternative material and thus makes it difficult to operate in the tree seedling's nursery.
    However we are looking forward to working with any willing partners and volunteers in order to achieve our goals and objectives.
