OTEPIC empowers communities to grow and enjoy their own food through providing grass- roots education in skills of sustainability.

Many communities and women initiatives could improve their situation.

Over 2,000 participants

Since 2008 we have taught more than 2,000 local farmers, women and youth in ecological agriculture, permaculture, peace education, renewable energy technologies and promoted innovative activities to improve the living standard of people.

Books instead of chemical fertilizers

Nancy Oppelle from the womens initiative Maili Saba, which has been taught by OTEPIC since 2008: “Nobody goes hungry anymore, not even at the end of the dry season. Our children are healthy because they get a diverse diet. And the money that we save by not using chemical fertilizers helps to buy their school books.”

Visitis to the participants

In follow-up seminars we visit the participants to help and guide them to apply the techniques they have learned in the workshops.
