    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Kenyan rural life may be quite different from what you are used to. You will learn to accept it is not always going as planned, you will learn to adjust, you will learn to work with what you can find (hardware stores are not very well equiped...), you will become very creative :-)
    We, the farmers, are a Dutch-Kenyan couple. We both lived in the Netherlands for a long time, and the difference with Kenyan rural life is quite a contrast. Staying with us at the farm also means you will see a lot of the village-life and we will have time to talk about the culture and way of living in Kenya.

    We have a beautiful farm just outside of Nairobi. For educational visits we started a foundation, to welcome schools and other groups to the farm. We would love some help from people who have experience in environmental education. We need to improve on our educational programs for the many schools that are already visiting us. We have a bus and an unfinished house that need to be transformed to guesthouses. So a good carpenter is also very welcome. We are planning to build a visitors center with a kitchen, bar, toilets. Anybody who is experienced in cob-building is welcome. And we like to build a rocket-stove on our compound. And anybody who can build a 'black soldier fly' composter? We do have people for the heavy labour, so we are more focused on knowledgeable people on education, carpentry, cob-building, arts and design, sawing etc. If you like cooking, you are also most welcome to prepare diner sometimes.

  • Hébergement


    You will be staying in the farmhouse, at our farm in a small Kenyan village, not far from Nairobi. We have 2 extra guest bedrooms in our house, so you will experience the real 'farmstay' together with the farmers. We share the meals (mostly vegetarian/vegan) together, of course with lots of fresh vegetables from the farm.

    Autres infos...

    We are in a real rural area, but only 1 hour away from Nairobi, so during your time off you can enjoy the best of both worlds - you can enjoy the peace and clean air in the village, it is beautiful to walk in the neighbourhood. Nairobi's citylife and shoppingmalls are not too far away and easily done by public transport.
    We will be happy to advice!
