Description:

The Eco Village on Rusinga Island aims to bring change to the lives of local people who face challenges such as food insecurity, HIV/AIDS and lack of education, among other pressing issues. It also seeks to inspire change in the general paradigms of local population towards a more holistic and responsible way of living. The Eco Village promotes permaculture farm techniques and ethics: Earth care, care for people and sharing the surplus. It is a model farm, or epicenter, for both sustainable agriculture and holistic community development. The Eco Village successfully hosted a Permaculture Development Course in March 2011 and aims to become an International Permaculture Center.

The project aims at promoting and demonstrating sustainable practices in food production and community development, guided by the ethics and principles of permaculture.

The volunteer tasks include:
• Mulching, seeding, harvesting and planting
• Beach cleanup exercises
• Soil conservation and tree planting within the school compound
• Support needy and elderly community members with general cleaning and other related works

Project dates: December 1 - December 21, 2019

Qualifications:

Volunteers are expected to have an interest in working and interacting with the local community and youth.


Training:

On site training is provided.


Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
