Kitale, Kenya

The impact of local action

OTEPIC, or the Organic Technology Extension and Promotion of Initiative Center has worked with local communities in and around Kitale, teaching small-scale farmers to cultivate mixed cultures, produce in a sustainable way, regenerate soils and supply themselves with their own food. OTEPIC runs two demonstration gardens in the poorest neighborhoods of Kitale – the learning garden in Mitume and the Amani Garden in Bidii – to teach the local people community-based approaches to self-sufficiency.


OTEPIC’s work has improved the lives of thousands of people and the region as a whole. Since 2008, they’ve trained more than 2000 local farmers, women and youth, not only in agriculture, but also renewable energy technologies, peace education and building community.
