In 2002 he responded to an advertisement asking for volunteers to help develop a Permaculture project at an orphan school in Malawi (MOET School). The school at that time had only 30 children. He visited for 7 weeks, and was so impressed by the school and the headmaster Patterson Majonanga, that he has been returning every year to help.
