We have had news from VALITA in Tanzania that the harvest from their permaculture farm has been a success. They have cultivated a diverse range of crops, including cassava, sweet potatoes, bananas, and various leafy vegetables to feed the residents at Kaya and people in their outreach programme. 

Using donations from RfLUK they have purchased and installed three 5000 litre water tanks to improve the irrigation of the farm and extend the area in which they can plant crops.

Much progress has been made on transforming one of the small buildings on the farm into a classroom. They have secured electricity to the classroom and are designing the surroundings according to permaculture principles.

VALITA have begun offering courses in permaculture theory and practical training, along with English language classes. They are using the computer that RfLUK purchased to teach the residents at Kaya and people in the surrounding area. 

Going forward, they would like to expand their training to include carpentry, welding, and various craft skills workshops: like beading, drawing, painting, and crafting cement flowerpots. They would also like to build a new storage room, a computer room, construct another toilet and purchase more computers for the training centre.
