Permaculture Design in Tanzania
Please help us send our Gardening Tr-In-Charge, George Bangu to attend a two week Permaculture Design Course in Arusha, Tanzania.
The knowledge and skills that he can bring from there will be invaluable to us providing nutritious meals to the students and promoting the goal to become self sustainable.
The HOCET Secondary School provides education opportunities to orphans and extremely vulnerable youths situated in the Pwani Region of Tanzania, East Africa. Within the goal of the school becoming self sustainable, our teachers and students have established ‘The Young Farmers Club’.
The Club is responsible for the school garden where fresh fruit and vegetables are produced to be consumed in the school. This helps to supplement and nourish all school members. The aim is to ensure that environmentally friendly agricultural techniques are practised, but the very sandy soils makes this a very challenging. We started practising permaculture in June last year, but we do not have the skills to fully implement it.
We have abundant land at the school and we believe that we can be able to fully feed the school and even generate income for the school through agriculture, so we would be extremely grateful to individuals or organisations who may help achieve greater permaculture knowledge.
US$500,00 will cover the sponsored cost of the course and travel costs.
Every contributor to this campaign will receive a post card thank you sent from the PDC course or soon after.
