The World Centric team is happy to report the completion of an organic farming library and training center in Kenya's North Rift Valley! A donation from World Centric helped fund the project, which was implemented by OTEPIC.

We last gave an update on the training center in October - now take a look at the before-and-after images!



The training center will help educate people in the North Rift about biointensive farming, which will enable them to have a secure source of food and to create sustainable occupations.

OTEPIC is a registered community-based organization that works with poor farmers, especially women, in Kenya's Western North Rift Valley. Through grass roots development work, they improve food security, soil fertility and empower local communities. Educating women effectively improves the standard of living for the whole community.
