Bij de Green Phoenix bijeenkomst was Philip Munyasia die vertelde over zijn geweldige project in Kenya, Otepic, dat staat voor Organic Technology Extension and Promotion of InitiativeCenter (www.otepic.org). Dit ecodorp en permacultuurproject bestaat nu 10 jaar en bereikt met haar onderwijs en praktijkvoorbeelden vele Kenianen. Hun volgende stap is het bouwen van een Permacultuurschool als studie en congrescentrum op een nieuw stuk land dat zij onlangs kochten (10 hectare), waar toen slechts 1 boom groeide en nu een compleet voedselbos is aangeplant. Philip zoekt steun in de vorm van donaties om dit mogelijk te maken. Wil je hieraan bijdragen, maak dan een mooi bedrag over op de rekening van GEN-NL (IBAN: NL84 TRIO 0390 9127 94) onder vermelding van steun aan OTEPIC. Wij zullen er voor zorgen dat dit geld Philip bereikt. 

Hieronder staat de beschrijving en een folder van zijn project. 

Our project is creating a vision for a Permaculture /Biointensive School in Kenya and Eastern Africa. (a place to train teachers to train their own communities).

The school will be a model for social and ecological sustainability, a place to reinstall the African dream of nature, hospitality and abundance, a training site to explore and share the knowledge of regional autonomy in water, food and energy supply, an Ecovillage including a Permaculture Training Centre and a guest house for international visitors, youth exchange and volunteers.

Due to a lot of number of people who wish to be trained on intensive Permaculture courses, we need various facilities toward achieving our goal. OTEPIC Kenya peace project is building a conference facility, with kitchen and accommodation.

The planned building will be used by the entire communities for activities such as training in Permaculture, sustainable energy supply and peace education. Additionally it will serve as a multi-purpose area where women or youth groups will have their own space to work on different activities and conduct their weekly meetings. A place to create a forum for sharing of information and experience among various initiatives, it will be designed to facilitate the easy exchange of ideas and collaborative working. Space to think, act and inspire.

  • -The facility will have the ability to host smaller concurrent meetings.
  • -There will be a kitchen and accommodation for groups.
