I came across this interesting Project in Kenya which is funded to help tribal women create a sustainable income for themselves.

It is just nice to see Permaculture projects like this springing up all over the world especially in areas in much of a need of sustainable projects for the local populace. I must state as having lived and resided in both ”First and Third world’ countries on different continents over the last 30 odd years, that we in the Industrial North (Europe etc.) have no right in claiming that Developing nations are over-populated and need any forms of control (trust me, many people I know have this  kind of paradigm and often, are very intelligent people as well) Intelligence though, in my opinion, is trumped by Wisdom.

The fact is that these contients were doing pretty well for themselves until foreign invaders came along (Colonialism) to bring them Religion, ”Civilisation”, Materialism and Monoculture Farming methods as well as death by non compliance …

The below video is in English but with German Subtitiles as well.

The women in the village are lucky enough to have a local Permaculturist at hand whom is getting funding to be able to help them bring about a sustainable way of providing income, not only with the Aloe plants / farming but also with Bees etc.

You can help support the project here at the Lush website as some products they sell are made from the same Aloe supplied by the tribeswomen.

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m looking ahead to your next publish, I will try to get the hold of it!
