We are an independent Non-Government Organisation (NGO).
Our Target Group are living in vast informal settlements, often referred to as townships to the North-East of Cape Town, where over one million people now live, mostly in shacks. Approximately 40% of its people are unemployed.
Our Core Business is to assist our Target Group to, firstly, combat poverty by growing food sustainably, using organic methods, at home and in community gardens and, secondly, to plant indigenous trees and flora in schools and streets, in order to transform the dune-sands of the Cape Flats into a sustainable urban environment.
Our Target Area is the Cape Flats – including Khayelitsha, Nyanga, Crossroads and Gugulethu. The Cape Flats are ecologically sensitive dune sand areas which contain some of the most threatened floral species within the unique Cape Floral Kingdom, a World Heritage Biome. Thus we strive through all our activities and projects to conserve what is left and to renew what has been destroyed.
