Our Approach to Sustainable Community Development

At Communities Assist, we believe in a holistic approach to sustainable community development. We focus on education, capacity building, and empowerment to create long-term change.

Education and Training Programs

By working closely with our local partners and experts from Australia and abroad, we are able to make a lasting impact and be the catalyst for positive change.

Garden to Plate
Where food is abundant and healthy so on one goes hungry or sick

Our Permaculture advisor Greg Knibbs, farm manager Frank Kimaro and our Green Team are always focused on improving the design, quality and volume of food grown in the gardens to create an improved, diverse, organic and healthy diet on the plates of our staff and kids.


While we often face challenges at Rainbow Ridge such as communication and connectivity (internet), water shortage (drought) or government restrictions and intervention, the team always rises to the challenge with intelligent and innovative solutions to ensure significant progress.


Our project has been boosted in recent years by the oversight of our Kenyan team from Kisumu City Permaculture Academy, collaboration with intern students from Kampala University, Uganda and the new management of Frank Kimaro so that Frank, Greg and our Green Team have ended 2023 with the delivery of our latest designed "Permaculture in Practice" week long crash course teaching African NGO representatives the best in theory and practice of sustainable farming at Rainbow Ridge
