We're setting up a new project in the Gambia to help fund a new sheme.
I've only been working on the African Jungle skills project for about three weeks. I was having conversations with Bhuwan in Rishikesh, as to how I could set up a business to allow my friends in the Gambia earn a better living, when I had a rather obvious revelation. Bear Grylls is extremely popular in India and people are also aware of Ray Mears woodcraft skills. My friends in Guinea Bissau were born to these survival techniques, so why not give people the opportunity to learn directly from the people who live their lives in the woods. I have stayed in the village twice myself and I have never felt more alive and in touch with nature and the true values of a life free from clutter. We are only looking for about six people at the moment, to join a trial jungle skills program in Cassalol, Guinea Bissau. Details are on our prototype website http:/africanjungleskills.webs.com/
