The Warka Village will operate as a platform to run vibrant, sustainable, and resilient social, cultural and economical activities, vital for a prosperous future.
Our environmental program is already started by researching and collecting locally-adapted plants. A series of collections was needed to reflect the diversity of the seasons when seeds are ripe and available. To ensure the project’s long-term success, we have invested time in the beginning to evaluate the site potentials and to ensure that all the plants or seeds needed can be available in the quantities and quality required. The activities are: Reforestation, Ecosystem Restoration, Native Plants Selection.
The WV Education Program brings opportunity through education access to all the community’s children. By working in collaboration with government authorities we take care of the administrative, logistic and financial aspects (school fees and expenses, books, uniforms, shoes, supplies, food, transportation). By investing in human capital, sending children to school, we ensure WV’s sustainable future development. We are seeking Sponsors and Partnerships to enable us to expand on this program.
Our Training initiative promotes the continuation of the architectural genius and the spreading of this traditional local know-how. With our training school, we will bring these construction techniques at a professional level to better transmit and extend the mastery of this architectural know-how to more people and other localities in the country. The goal is to ensure that there is a continuation of those architectural ancestral construction techniques that are in the process of disappearing.
The WV community managing program operates the different village systems. Operative and maintenance activities are crucial for the well functioning of the community. Keeping rural systems working is perhaps even more important than building them. This is why we leave it up to the community, to the responsibility to manage WV complex systems. A Village Management Team (VMT) is selected by the community to operate and it is in charge of maintaining and managing the water and compost supply systems.
Our Agroecology’s holistic approach incorporate the traditional knowledge and skills of local farming with cutting edge ecological, agronomic, economic and sociological research. We support democratically based food systems that provide health and livelihoods to the WV family farmers; as well as environmental benefits. Through this process of regeneration another kind of agricultural civilization can be built. Vibrant, sustainable, and resilient economical activities are vital for the WV economic future.
