Badilisha Eco Village

Badilisha Eco Village info, products & news

Our vision is that all people in the world live together in a way that supports mother earth as well as respects each other's (universal) needs.Badilisha embodies the phrase “think global, act local.” It seeks to adapt and mitigate the challenges facing Rusinga Island, and promote the achievement of the Millenium Development Goals. Rusinga Island bares many burdens, which are driven or exacerbated by distal  issues such as climate change and  global inequalities.  Challenges include poverty and unemployment, HIV/AIDS, lack of education and illiteracy, drought, infectious disease (including malaria), undernutrition and malnutrition, deforestation and soil degradation, collapsing fisheries and domestic violence.  Badilisha has emerged as a response to these widespread challenges. It has developed a vast array of designs, facilities and programs using the ethics and practices of permaculture as its guide.  Such teachings include “start slow”, “work with nature”, “use of common sense and local and traditional knowledge”, “holistic  design”, “cooperation, not competition”, and “sustainability.” These, and other teachings of permaculture, are apparent in the structure of the farm and also in the community social action projects run through Badilisha. Badilisha is a locally driven initiative, which engages, inspires, teaches and benefits the Rusinga community. It also has international partnerships, and welcomes visitors, students and volunteers from abroad to learn from and contribute to the farm and community. Badilisha successfully hosted a Permaculture Development Course in March 2011 and aims to become an International Permaculture Center. Please browse to “Current Projects” section to view the 3 Year Plan for Badilisha’s permaculture design, followed by the community development initiatives that Badilisha entails. Together, these programs truly embody the ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Share of Surplus.
