Imagine a world where food shopping is as simple as walking into your garden and grabbing what you need or trading with a neighbour. Imagine having your own chickens for eggs, or goats and pigs for dairy and meat. Imagine being able to earn a living off the soil beneath your feet. This is the world we are building around Thanda.
Our Organic Farming Programme, which involves 175 farmers daily, is reducing food insecurity & malnutrition, building self-reliance among cash-dependent communities, and encouraging local enterprise development.
We believe farming is primarily about the farmer. That is why we strengthen self-esteem, critical thinking, and empathy skills amongst farmers too.
Training & Mentoring
