Making a difference in the world! United Way South Africa in collaboration with our donor employees, took a step towards combating hunger, healthcare issues and enhancing education by educating schools in Tembisa on sustainable food gardens.
On November 9, 2023, we kicked off the initiative at Ivory Park Secondary School, by establishing a Food Garden - supplying seedlings, watering plants for growth, as well as contributing to consumer studies and life science programs.
We are also grateful for the support we received from City of Johannesburg (CoJ) personnel. We are creating a foundation for learners to learn and implement sustainable food security practices at school and home.
Next stop: Inqayisivele Secondary School! We reviewed the planting done on the 18th July 2023. It was exciting to see the beautiful vegetable garden. We will enhance their established Food Garden with much-needed protective fencing as well as help upgrade their irrigation system.
This project is not only about food ~ it's about strengthening employee volunteering, creating lasting socio-economic foundations for self-sustainable food security, as is also espoused by the government.
Join the movement! Plant a garden today for better health, education, and income generation! 🌿📚💰
