How to Participate


One of the Goals for all three schools, is:

  • To introduce a permaculture programme at the school; such a project would ensure sustainability in the community. 

    This would include growing trees, maize, beans, rice and vegetables. We could also include some livestock in the project as well (perhaps dairy cows, sheep, chickens, sows)

Buduma Primary School

Buduma Primary School is located in the town of Buduma, and is 20 km away from the Bukati Primary school in the opposite direction from the Bwaliro Primary School. Funding started in 2011.

Buduma Primary School is the third school that is being helped by the Children of Bukati project.
Buduma School was given a permaculture project that Michael Nickels, the permaculture specialist, has now implemented (in 2012).
That project was made possible in part by COB (Children of Bukati) and also with money that Michael Nickels raised on his own.
The crops and livestock at Buduma are doing very well.

The following photos and commentary are the earliest photos for Buduma Primary School. 
These photos were taken in November 2011 by Dr. Cate Dewey.
