Future Training Center 

HELP US ACHIEVE A TRAINING SITE FOR: 

 

Agriculture
Creating coops for food security; gender, youth and empowerment for persons with disabilities. 

Art

Earth-friendly:
Our choice to use a freight container for our training center is ecological and practical. The basis of everything we do is founded on simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and life-affirming choices. The center will use an eco-stove to train for healthy cooking, dry-flush toilets, solar lighting, rain water collection, and abandoned tires as furnishings.
