We were very blessed to meet Philip last year and his wonderful project Otepic.
Philip needs some help buying some bricks at 1$ a brick for his amazing project Otepic in East Kenya.
OTEPIC was established in 2008 as a grassroots community project in Kitale, a city in Western Kenya.
From the start, @Philip Odhiambo Munyasia mobilized young people and women’s groups from Kitale’s slums. The aim was to grow their own food, plant trees for reforestation, ensure sustainable water supply, use renewable energies, develop community building and to find peaceful solutions for (tribal) conflicts.
