Intensive training and follow-up support in Urban Agriculture and Horticulture for the poor in Cape Town, South Africa
Beneficiaries live in poverty-stricken townships with high levels of unemployment, hunger and HIV/AIDS. Most lack formal education or skills. Communities lack housing and other essential resources. Townships are built on infertile sand-dunes, where precious Cape Flora has been badly damaged. Beneficiaries include women, youth, the elderly and persons both infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.
To provide 200 disadvantaged people with intensive training in organic Urban Agriculture or Horticulture. Each trainee will receive a starter pack with everything necessary to start their own gardens. Fieldwork support will be provided for one year.
This project will help communities fight poverty and hunger, while conserving the environment.
