Aussie visitors to Testigo’s permaculture project in Longido

June 19, 2013

La Chica was delighted to welcome Sem and Nelson to Testigo’s permaculture project in Longido.  Sem is the Africa Program Manager with AFAP, Testigo’s partner in Sydney.  Nelson is with Concern International, based in Kenya, and also a partner of AFAP.  Sem had the opportunity of meeting the Testigo team, including Emanuel Saakai, Testigo’s Tanzania country manager, Sokoine Tumuti and Denis Mzava – Testigo helpers, Sommy Issangya, Testigo’s permaculture trainer, and Ndoye and Joseph, beneficiaries and now new trainers for Testigo’s permaculture project.  Sem also spent time interviewing some of the Masai women who have been participating in the permaculture project, and had a tour of Testigo’s impressive demonstration plot.  Namnyak cooked lunch for the visitors using produce from the permaculture gardens and the women sang songs they had written about Testigo and Los Chicos!
