Communities servedFamilies and community members in the Nkandla region

We’re turning trash into treasure in Joe Slovo Township. With this project, residents are exchanging recyclable trash for redeemable vouchers for food and groceries. Not only does this program clean the streets, it puts food on the table for families facing food insecurity.

We are currently serving about 360 households per week in Nkandla alone, and we have collected more than 1000kgs of plastic bottles, cardboard, and waste.
