Project Summary

The Kigamboni Community Centre is a registered non-profit based in the peninsula district on the outskirts of Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania. It currently provides education and play opportunities for local kids, many of whom have not been able to attend or complete primary school, as well as social enterprise support for local adults in the community. It is currently setting up a large scale permaculture project on a plot of land marked for KCC community development.

Project Description

The Centre has, with the support of funds from the UK and Canada, been able to purchase a plot of land in order to secure its future viability (it is currently housed in abandoned government buildings that are set for redevelopment). After having completed a PDC at the Kinesi Village permaculture centre in northern Tanzania, Festo Chengula, one of the founders of KCC, decided he would like to develop the land along the principles of permaculture, to include development of a school, housing, agriculture and aquiculture activities and additional community centre. We are in the very early stages - that means in the design phase. Since none of us have any experience in this area, we are keen for anyone who does to come and join us!

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
