Update from the field: OTEPIC – Organic Technology Extension and Promotion of Initiative Centre
OTEPIC is a registered community-based organization that works with poor farmers, especially women, in the Western North Rift of Kenya. Through grass roots development work, we improve food security and soil fertility and empower communities. Educating women effectively improves the standard of living for the whole community.
We are educating people in the North Rift of Kenya about biointensive farming to enable them to have a secure source of food and create sustainable occupations. A major study by the United Nations presented in 2008 says that organic farming offers Africa the best chance of breaking the cycle of poverty and malnutrition it has been locked in for decades. We are working to make that possibility a reality in the North Rift. (Photo: Phillip)
