In the beautiful foothills of the Drakensberg mountains, in the uThukela district of Kwa-Zulu Natal; wholesome non-GMO maize is being grown and milled, by local small-scale farmers. This initiative works with the local community, teaching farmers affordable and eco-friendly farming methods.
Last year, we collaborated with ‘Hamba Ekukhanyeni’ to fund the set-up of a mill, in this community. This would see maize grown, milled and bagged on site. Farmers take their produce to the mill, where it’s weighed and they are paid, for it. The grain produced is nutritious, protein rich and non-GMO; unlike most grain produced by commercial farmers.
Help us support these farmers and sustain the mill, by donating R100. We will buy maize and distribute it through our network of registered non-profit organisations serving needy communities around KZN.
