About Sibahle Community Project
Sibahle Community Project Objectives
The first pilot project is attached to the Tladi Clinic where we are striving to create an entirely community driven veggie garden to supply fresh produce to our soup kitchen and thus both feed hungry patients and give them a sustaining project that they can have ownership of. In the long term producing and preparing enough food to feed critically ill patients will help support the efficacy of the medications they already take. We also aim to provide a platform where all people in the community can get trained in food growing and have access to immune boosting healthy food.
This project is not about a hand out. It is about empowerment, giving patients who have lost dignity and self esteem by being out of work and unable to provide for their families a chance to do something worthwhile every day. A reason to rally together with other members of their community to create something beautiful and beneficial. A means of putting food in hungry bellies and cultivating a sense of social responsibility between members of the community.
Purchasing a print from WorldPix enables WorldPix to provide financial support to Sibahle Community Project, helping these children receive an education and prepare them for adulthood with a future.
For a one of kind experience, Sibahle Community Project also offers volunteer opportunities to work onsite with the organization and the children.
