The MylifE Foundation has been working on the sustainable development of the MylifE Village concept for the past 6 years. A couple of months ago, after a long trip we finally arrived in Hogsback – where we are setting up our first ‘pilot’ Village. We are blessed to be in such a beautiful, natural environment – surrounded by forests, waterfalls, mountains, wild-life and a willing community.
We are building a ‘creative community’ for the Next Generation. The MylifE Villages will be a place where, using eco-principles, youth – otherwise trapped in unemployment, poverty and hopelessness – have the opportunity for healing and to be skilled into sustainable and inspired members of society, contributing to economic development and a peaceful society.
The model is a “Train the Trainer” programme based on climate, soil, food, water, shelter and love. It will provide training and skills development for children in all areas of Green Building and Food Production. This will be realised through hands-on-work, practical learning and experience in a real-life, self-sufficient creative community.
The MylifE Villages will provide children with the tools they need to change their lives and communities for the better.
