Campaign to raise funds for our project on Rusinga Island, Kenya

Dear Friends, 

I'm writing to tell you about a project we're very excited about. Our project on Rusinga Island has been going very well and the farmers group we are working with are very enthusiastic and keen to move on to the next stage. In a Visioning workshop in June they stated that they wanted to see themselves as model farmers and peer educators for their community, helping to spread the knowledge of permaculture to address food insecurity and climate change whilst regenerating the environment and creating environmentally sustainable livelihoods.  With the money raised through this campaign we can continue supporting them with capacity building workshops to set them up as organic certified farmers, with a link to the international organic and health food export market as well as supporting them in their aim to become model farmers and peer educators for their community. Our aim is to see them as a self sufficient Organic Farmers Association. 

I am forwarding you the campaign to raise funds for our project on Rusinga Island. You can find the campaign by clicking on the links below in the email or here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/kenya-s-1st-permaculture-island/x/5409279
