Amasiko Greenschool is not a commercial lodge but a social enterprise focussing on the promotion of ecological principles and on the education of the children of the surrounding area. As such we offer our guests a home stay experience and we hope that our guests feel right at home. 1.Amasiko Greenschool has an alternating number of trainees who are undergoing a learn-work program. Please accept that some of them are new, not fluent in English and are not always perfect in their performance. Please feel free to tell us if things are not according to your wishes or need our attention, 2.Toilets in Amasiko are eco san toilets. The toilet pots have two holes; one small in front where urine is collected and one bigger hole where faeces pass. Urine runs into a container and is used as nitrogen fertilizer in our field crops. Faeces are collected, composted and dug into the soil to grow fodder crops for our animals. Money earned from this home stay experience is spend at the school and benefits the people working and learning at Amasiko.
