    Good day,

    I'm reading about all sorts of courses on all different topics of permaculture. But, they are very far from the place I live.... Namibia - Africa.
    Does anybody know where one can try to find a sponsor for the financial implications of attending a course??

    Really hope on a positive reply!

    Hello Ellen I just got word from a friend that one of my former mentors is going back to South Africa to do some work. I know no details other than she has worked there before with different school projects. Her email is [email protected] and her name is Robina McCurdy. I would recommend seeing if she is going to be teaching a PDC while she is there. Again I know of no plans as of yet but it maybe in the works. Second I have a former student who I ended up going to her little site in Malaysia to teach at that was looking for a similar thing. She went through the UN I believe here is her email [email protected] her website is https://embunpagi2009.wordpress.com/

    Also we tried to work with an African on our last course with a visa and all and we were going to wave the course fee. However he had a difficult time with the visa. SO please do keep that in mind and possibly we could do a similar situation. www.treeyopermaculture.wordpress.com The airfare is the tricky part but portugal is closer than the states. Hope this helps
