Education to deal with climate change is a huge issue, especially for the already marginalised farmers in East Africa. Subsistence farming is rarely a focus for investment or training, yet it is the path to food security.
It costs £250 to train a farmer to become a permacutlure teacher.
120 hours of tuition and material support to create and empower teachers and community leaders!
We think this is the most effective way to create long term and lasting change where it is most needed.
