The main One World Village is yet on the planning stage. The location is by the Atlantic coast just outside Gunjur, regarded of many as one of the most beautiful, lushy areas of the Gambia.
Our vision is to create an ecovillage where houses are built of local, natural materials as clay and sand with grass roofs, have compost toilets and solar power. The vegetable garden is functioning with the understanding of perma culture, where everything organic is recycled into the natural, enviromental growing circle far from chemicals and pesticides.
The founders of One World Village, Aita (origin Sweden) and Amadou (origin The Gambia) Fadera dedicate their work to create a place where coming back to ones true nature and source is of highest priority in life. Relating to everything living as a true gift from God, our Creator, is of a basic understanding.
There will be a natural relating and cooperation with local village inhabitants. Especially women empowerment will be of priority.
The One World Village Ecolodge will statue a schooling example for anybody with interest in finding the often forgotten and natural way of using our planets gifts for a long lasting life.
The One World Village Guesthouse was built long before the main vision took place and is therefore as much as possible adjusted to the eco concept. It has a lushy, beautiful garden with a big variety of fruit trees and tropical plants as banana, papaya, orange, mango, pomegrant, guava, passionfruit and nooni. The guesthouse has recycling of organic waste materials.
We kindly ask our guests to cooperate in this ecological concept and therefore ask you to separate all organic waste and throw it in the special bin outside the lobby. Also tins and glass are to be separated.
As water is a resource from nature and for many people in the world a deficiency, we kindly ask our guests to use water consciously. This also regarding the sewage system which still is of every property’s own responsibility in this area.
Thank you for your kind cooperation in creating a conscious concept!
