In a poor rural community of South Africa’s Free State province, Pietrus Moshoeshoe found himself responsible for 66 extended family members (47 of them children) after his father passed away. He inherited the leadership of his family farming cooperative group, but had virtually no technical knowledge or training in agriculture. The family was only eating every three days. Pietrus’ children didn’t attend school, because he had to choose between buying school uniforms or seeds for the next planting. The future looked bleak.
Since taking part in INMED’s adaptive agriculture and business training program, everyone is well fed, the children are attending school, and the group has won several farming awards for their climate-smart enterprise years after INMED’s help.
Sustainability it key to all INMED programs for disadvantaged children and families. If you’re looking to give a gift that will have a life-long impact, please support our work: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/inmed
