Omutukuvu is a community based organization registered by the government of Uganda and located in a very remote area, 65 km away from Jinja, where the Nile takes its source. Omutukuvu projects aim at promoting sustainable ways of life and work as an educational center for children and adult of the close communities who want to learn agriculture methods.
We aim to establish small green communities with eco-friendly housing, green energy (solar/wind), unlimited flow of fresh water and permaculture ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient.
We spent seven days at Omutukuvu during which we helped redesigning their website, manage their social networks, dig the terraces for planting, and last but not least, build dry toilets and the preliminary foundations of a compost hacienda!
