Abundant Earth Youth Prize of the Permaculture Magazine for Milicent Anyango
The winner of the Abundant Earth Youth Prize is Milicent Anyango, who followes with her team of Lucy and Ann permaculture principles to feed orphans, schoolchildren and the homeless. Milicent grew up as an orphan in Kenya.
Today she educates, cares for and feeds the children in the OTEPIC orphanage Tabasamu. The fresh and narrative food comes from her own permaculture garden. The surplus food goes to the homeless project, where Millicent also works. Their commitment to the next generation at such a young age is extraordinary.
