Werk

 Permaculture which generally involves farmwork activities  Teaching of mathematics, english and creative arts subject in the school within the project  Home visits during the afternoon and assisting with general cleaning to the old, widows and sick people in the community  Weeding, slashing and clearing of bushes in the project’s farm  Soil conservation and planting of trees in the school compound  Beach clean-up exercises to improve sanitation and hygiene around the community

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Accommodation will be at the project in this workcamp and it is important that you have your own sleeping mat, mosquito net and a sleeping bag. During the workcamp, volunteers will get food from locally available foodstuffs and will share the responsibility of preparing the food. Drinking water is available but it is advisable to either boil or medicate the water before consuming. Alternatively mineral drinking water can also be purchased from the nearby shops.

Locatie en vrije tijd

In this workcamp, volunteers will have a chance to do evening nature walks, home visits, cultural meetings and games. During weekends volunteers can visit the Rusinga hills, Mafangano Islands and Tom Mboya Mausoleum. We advise volunteers not to swim in the lake since it is contaminated with parasites.

Organisatie

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 the 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 the 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 Centre. 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.
