Summary

We identify impoverished households in rural communities that have no source of income and have children, providing them with food parcels and empowering them with tools and skills to establish food gardens for a sustainable source of food. We also promote the importance of nutrition and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Challenge

30% of South Africa's child population lives in poverty due to high unemployment rates, resulting in high food insecurity causing malnutrition. Due to COVID-19 Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres and schools are closed which means impoverished children are not receiving food through the various school nutrition programme initiatives. This project will provide food security for impoverished families, reaching 5000 children.

Solution

We work in impoverished rural communities, assisting families with no income and having children empower themselves by establishing food gardens. This means they have access to fresh food from the gardens and can expand the gardens to generate income for themselves, having a sustainable source of food.

Long-Term Impact

Very quickly, we see the emotional and physical well-being of families improve. The programme's long-term impact is that children have better developmental outcomes and are prepared to start their first year of school. Children who receive assistance in their early years achieve more in school and as adults. They have higher employment and earnings, better health, and lower levels of social grant dependence and crime rates than those who don't have these early opportunities.
