Rusinga Island

Spread the love

GDA has been in contact with the “Badilisha” foundation on Rusinga Island in Kenya for some time now.

Located in Lake Victoria, this island has suffered from erosion from deforestation. For some time now, the community has been motivated to plant trees. This not only retains the soil, but also influences the water in the soil and thus the water cycle. The rains, which sometimes did not come or were too heavy, are now back to normal.
The forests are created in the form of food forests.
In addition, permaculture is used.
We are happy to exchange our knowledge and hope for good cooperation in various areas. There will also be contact between the Innovation Center in Bujumbura and the people of Badilisha, Kenya.
