My dream is that the people of the Mubaya village live a self-determined and self-sufficient life in harmony with nature and in harmony with each other.
I think that we can live a self-reliable life in the village. We can work with what is within our reach, that is, the resources that surround us so that we can take advantage of the land that was given to us and use it in the most productive way. We can repair the damages done to nature and restore a healthy environment that provides us with sufficient and healthy food. Moreover, we can generate almost anything in the village and live off-the-grid. In this way, people can find meaning in living in the village and will not have to leave to the cities or abroad.
I think that it is our duty to care for the future of our children and allow generations to come to continue to be self-sufficient and master of their own social, cultural and economic lives.
I think that we can work together in the village, have common goals, and support each other. Each person in this group should have his or her special role and be empowered, seen and heard. Villagers should openly participate in decisions that affect their own lives and that of the community. They should be endowed with responsibilities for their land and community. This will give them a deep feeling of belonging and of self-control over their lives.
To help us reach this vision we can take our forefathers as examples. They were self-sufficient and survived without modern food. They lived longer and healthier than people are living nowadays. They helped each other to survive in a simple and sustainable way of living by using what was available around them, without hustle to exchange with silver and gold for food.

If someone wants to join the community one needs to come and speak to the headman of the village and the headman will call upon a meeting with the committee and discuss the matter.then he can be shown where he can build his homestead.
