Youth and Yound Adults
Primary beneficiaries include youth (ages 15-18) who have dropped out of school or are on the cusp of doing so. These boys and girls cannot relate to traditional educational settings, tend to have dangerously low self-esteem and limited employability skills. Increasingly, we are also working with young adults (ages 18-21) who are struggling to advance into adulthood.
The Educational Community
Kaima works with other NGOs and educators, as well as municipal and government authorities to provide alternative educational opportunities and meaningful engagement of the young people in their care.
The General Community
With interest in the "farm-to-table" lifestyle on the rise, Kaima's model of selling organic produce through the CSA platform and teaching permaculture is in synch with an existing natural market waiting to be further developed.
Coming Together to do Good
Beyond Kaima's commitment to agricultural sustainability, Kaima also maintains that society must be committed to human sustainability. In this effort, we come together as a community to attend to the unique needs of each boy or girl who has dropped out in an effort to re-engage them in meaningful endeavors.
Kaima is able to operate as an “educational employer” thanks to the generous support of our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscribers; in-kind commercial and community support; government and local authorities; as well as critical philanthropic partnerships.
To all we say "toda raba" - thank you very much!
