Spring semester 2017
Eco Moyo is an educational Community Based Organisation located in the town Mtwapa in Kilifi county, Kenya, providing free Montessori based education to children from poor families. Currently Eco Moyo provide education and care for around 20 children in temporary accommodation. Eco Moyo have recently bought a 5 hectares site half an hour drive from Kilifi town center in an area called Ezamoyo. Currently this site has a house, and Eco Moyo is building the infrastructure necessary to make it usable as an education centre. At the start of 2017 they plan to build living accommodation for 20 pupils and the teaching staff so that they can move operations to the new site. The development plan for Eco Moyo Education Centre consists of two parts: Eco Moyo Primary School. Modelled on Green School Principals and the Montessori Education Method, emphasis is on practical approaches to each subject together with ethics, ecology, training in individual thinking and communication skills. Eco Moyo Farm. The farm will be based on Permaculture Principals for the cultivation of food crops, timber and animal husbandry. The goal is to meet the consumption needs of students and staff, while functioning as a demonstration site for locals and visitors. Eco Moyo have asked The Scarcity and Creativity Studio, AHO to design and build three classrooms on their new site.
