Badilisha means “change” in Swahili. Badilisha Eco Village aims to bring change to the lives of people on Rusinga Island, who face challenges such as food insecurity, HIV/AIDS, 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. Badilisha Eco Village promotes permaculture farm design techniques and ethics: Earth care, people care 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. There is a primary school also within the project that was established with an overall objective of providing education to the children around the community.
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, old clothes that are no longer in use, toys, books, pens, etc.
