Support Philip to come to the Global Campus!

What's it about?

We need your support for Philip Munyasia, a organic farming trainer and community organizer from Kenya, to attend the Global Campus in Tamera. Born and raised in Northern Kenya, Philip’s life of service is a response to the situation of his country. All around him he sees the struggle for survival: people have little opportunity for education, small plots of land, and limited access to water. Philip founded the OTEPIC project in 2003, using his knowledge to train other people and creating a small organic garden. They now train hundreds of farmers every year; many of the participants are women. OTEPIC’s projects span far beyond agricultural: tree nurseries and reforestation; practical workshops for making soap, solar cookers, and brickets from local materials for cooking fuel; programs for youth and street children and health education for HIV awareness and other issues.
Last summer Philip participated in the Global Campus for three months and learned new skills towards ecological, technological and social solutions for the future. He immediately translated this new knowledge to his region, sharing his learning through training programs for others. He hopes to develop a water landscape according to the methodology of Sepp Holzer, complete with lakes for water retention and an edible permaculture landscape.
This summer Philip will join people from projects around the world (Columbia, Mexico, Israel, India...) for an intensive six week study time. In this next phase of the Global Campus we will offer a profound and comprehensive education about four basic areas of life: energy, water, nutrition and love, in addition to the basic study of real life models. This will show us the transformation and changes needed in our thinking and lifestyle to ignite the system-change from the matrix of separation and violence to the matrix of trust, solidarity and care for all that lives.
