Agriculture And Food Security Programme
The programme helps empower communities through improved food security, health and nutrition, and thus contributes to integrated rural community development. We seek to improve conditions in rural and peri-urban areas through development of capacity, skills, and values within these communities, to meet long-term goals of sustainable development and poverty alleviation using a sustainable livelihood approach. Thembalethu Development designed an Agriculture and Food Security Programme targeted at communities, households, and emerging farmers to help increase income through commercial farming and improve their food security through homestead gardens. . The emerging farmer support component of the programme increases economic opportunities for individuals and groups of farmers by building on existing assets.
