Our Projects

Nourishing Lives One Meal at a Time

We create sustainable solutions for nutrition and food security within the communities we support through sustainable vegetable garden programs that create job opportunities, training facilities and nutritious vegetables for our Early Childhood Development Centres. The program also creates a platform empowering women to start their own micro vegetable market businesses.

ECD Connect | Sustainable Farming | Seedling Nursery | Solar

Mafefe village is a mountainous area 200km south-east of Polokwane. The area is known for being a typical rural Limpopo community with various pressing needs affecting society. Through skills development and implementation of other Rise Against Hunger Africa projects, the local community is significantly impacted in education and nutrition.

Pace Community College: Soweto

Hydroponics | Learning Academy

Through an exciting partnership with Pace Community College, Rise Against Hunger Africa is establishing a hydroponic farm to create produce, seedlings and skills. Hydroponics is a method whereby plants are grown without soil, instead using submersion in water. The primary crops of this project will be tomatoes and spring onions.

Morning Star: Johannesburg

ECD Connect | Sustainable Farming

Morning Star is an early childhood development center enrolled in our ECD Connect program. What began as a humble single shack has blossomed over the years into a thriving educational hub, benefiting from a regular supply of fresh vegetables, complementing the nutritious meals provided by Rise Against Hunger Africa and contributing to the overall well-being of the children. By reducing the need for purchasing vegetables, participating ECDs collectively save an estimated R800.00 per month on food expenses, representing a financial benefit and a step toward a self-sufficient and resilient community.
