FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS the Tashirat orphanage in central Mexico has taken unadoptable children with mental, physical, and emotional disabilities, given them family homes, healed them with a proper diet, and wholesome education.

Permaculture magazine is receiving more and more requests for acknowledgement and support. Requests come from those being impacted today by climate change and those living in refugee camps who want to help their children learn, adapt and live more resilient lives. These donations allow us to reach these people who are making real differences within their communities.
The World Forest Organisations’ thank you letter here is an example of the positive impact we can make to people such as Eva Jefa in Kenya.
Permaculture magazine also seeks to pair up projects with expert mentors and volunteers (keep an eye on the Classified and News pages for these requests).
Donate today and we can get key texts to projects in time for their academic years. We always welcome large contributions, but even the smallest contribution you can make will go a long way. 100% of the money goes to supporting permaculture people and projects, wherever they may be.
