Eco-village development and Bonus Day!

Your support has enabled us to make exciting progress at our first eco-village site in Othaya! The eco-village provides a place for the youth to live, work and save as they transition to independent living. Othaya has a beautiful natural environment, and one of our main income-generating activities will be eco-tourism, with hiking, river rafting and biking, as well as agri-tourism. In the past several months we have built traditional huts for guest housing, a kitchen facility, a dining hall and latrines. Several of our young people have worked with skilled workmen to learn traditional building techniques. We already have a booking by a local organization to use the facility in August!

There is also agricultural land at Othaya, currently growing vegetables for the Centre. Four youth live at the eco-village now, and we will soon have capacity for more.

Additional funds are needed to build more housing for the youth and a reception centre for vulnerable children from the local community. Today is a YouthSpark bonus day at Global Giving, so all gifts made will be matched 100%! This is a wonderful opportunity to double the impact of your gift! Please give now!
