THE STORY:

We need your support for Philip Munyasia, a organic farming trainer and community organizer from Kenya, to attend the Global Campus in Tamera. Born and raised in Northern Kenya, Philip’s life of service is a response to the situation of his country. All around him he sees the struggle for survival: people have little opportunity for education, small plots of land, and limited access to water. Philip founded the OTEPIC project in 2003, using his knowledge to train other people and creating a small organic garden. They now train hundreds of farmers every year; many of the participants are women. OTEPIC’s projects span far beyond agricultural: tree nurseries and reforestation; practical workshops for making soap, solar cookers, and brickets from local materials for cooking fuel; programs for youth and street children and health education for HIV awareness and other issues.
Last summer Philip participated in the Global Campus for three months and learned new skills towards ecological, technological and social solutions for the future. He immediately translated this new knowledge to his region, sharing his learning through training programs for others. He hopes to develop a water landscape according to the methodology of Sepp Holzer, complete with lakes for water retention and an edible permaculture landscape.
