Source Food Locally
We leverage on already existing structures such as schools, and existing transport systems, we are able to design programs that not only benefit school children but bring community resources together. Parents meet half the cost of food and provide a market for local farmers to provide fresh and nutritious food at competitive prices. By connecting farmers directly to slum communities that are heavily populated, we also provide farmers with a steady market for their produce.
The presence of middle men that connect farmers to the market leads to exploitation of farmers and high cost of food that makes slum dwellers particularly vulnerable as they are low income earners. Limited space in slum areas makes it difficult for slum communities to grow their own food and they also lack the knowledge on how to do this. We bridge the gap between slum communities and farmers.
