Accommodation will be at the project in this workcamp and it is important that you have a sleeping bag and mat. During the workcamp, volunteers will get food from locally available foodstuffs and the volunteers will share the responsibility of preparing the food.
In this workcamp, volunteers can do hiking, visit Rusinga and Mfangano Islands, Ruma National park and Tom Mboya Mausoleum, which are about a 45-minute walk from the project.
Badilisha means “change” in Swahili. Badilisha Eco Village aims to bring change to the lives of people living on Rusinga Island, 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. Badilisha Eco Village promotes permaculture farm design techniques and ethics: Earth care, care for people and share of surplus. It is a model farm, or epicenter, for both sustainable agriculture and holistic community development. Badilisha 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 particular food production and domestic issues, guided by the ethics and principles of permaculture.
Volunteers are required to carry the following items for the workcamp: mosquito net, torch/flashlight, toiletries, first-aid kit, sleeping bag, sandals and sunscreen. In addition to those, volunteers can also carry the following items for interaction purposes: pictures of your country, clothes, toys, books, pens, etc.
