Youth Health and Gardening Project
Needy households are trained in organic gardening (using the “Farming God’s Way” methodology) and are helped to establish Household Gardens.
Philakahle supports each Household garden with 6m x 9m garden fencing material to protect the gardens from livestock. These gardens help the youth/ children and their families with food security (in some cases the beneficiaries are on chronic treatment so this helps family members to take their medication with nutritious food). The gardens also supplement household income through the sale of garden produce.

Gogo Mabaso managed to raise enough money from her garden that she bought chickens and started a new business. After the tragedy of having her home broken into and her chickens stolen, Philakahle donated chicks and chicken feed to Gogo Mabaso to start her business afresh. Here, she is receiving her gift with a smile alongside Mumsy Hlatshwayo
Gogo Mazibuko raised enough money from her garden to start a handcrafting business, and here, we see some of our overseas visitors buying her product.
