Main Description:

Remba, a kind of slum island is situated in Lake Victoria under Mfangano Ward, Homabay County in Kenya. It has a population of about six thousand people depending majorly on fishing activities for food and income, by using hundreds of fishing gears (boats) hence too much pressure on the lake. Other than fishing, no any farming method ever practiced in this place, leaving the residents vulnerable to diet associated diseases among other socio economic gaps. It is on this regard that we (John, Osunga and Richard) thought of starting an Organic Farm to provide the community with the missing alternativs on food security. We therefore, open our doors for WWOOFers who at will can share with us Skills, Labour and any other support to help us improve on crop production and make the firm self sustained. We are continuously having greens and sereals plus fruits on seasons. Activities on our farm includes digging, seeding, irrigation, weeding, mulching, harvesting and fencing using gill nets. Volunteers can stay with us for a period of one week to three months or more. We speak English, Kiswahili, Luo and Olusuba languages. Feel free to contact us for any enquiry. WELCOME.
