Plans for the Future

PORET is facing the necessity to distribute the knowledge about this most effective way of living on a broader scale.

5 men needed to move a big rock.
working hard to prepare the place for the buildings.

We want to develop an education centre as a learning meeting point for the farmers and their families with all the facilities which are needed to run courses, buildings for teaching and accommodation to have a kindergarten, a library, possibilities to show films, health instructions and possibilities for younger people to learn about permaculture and to do HIV prevention.

At the same time we want to support the farmers to develop their own permaculture systems at their properties, who then will teach others through their own projects in turn.

There is also a need to plant more trees in the surroundings to stabilize the soil and water, as well as to change the micro climate.

For all this, PORET need money to jumpstart these initiatives.

Funding

To date, PORET has been working with almost no money from outside. The farmers involved work in exchange of acquiring more knowledge. In the long run, however, it is necessary to achieve a level from where the farmers will be able to live independently from their properties.

At the moment 7 people are working for PORET - till now without any salary.

In the future, PORET wants to employ about 12 people, according to the position the salary should be from USD 100.- to 650.- per month.
