Badilisha Eco Village promotes permaculture farm design techniques and ethics: earth care, people care and share of surplus. It is a model farm, or epicenter, for both sustainable agriculture and holistic community development. Badilisha means “change” in Swahili. Badilisha aims to bring change to the lives of people on Rusinga Island, who face challenges such as food insecurity, HIV/AIDS, lack of education, among other pressing issues. It also seeks to inspire change in the general paradigms of local and international individuals, towards a more holistic and responsible worldview.
