Uplift Khayelitsha Through Community Center

SLE-Farming in cooperation with Moya We Khaya humbly presents this call for funding.

The Moya We Khaya farm is a community garden based in the township of Khayelitsha, Cape Town. The garden is a co-operative led by elderly women from different walks of life who came together for one common objective: the improvement of their community. The garden plants a variety of seasonal organic vegetables that are sold to local restaurants, community members, or through regularly held market days. 

Moya We Khaya is more than just a farm. It’s more than just fresh organic vegetables. It’s dedicated, generous and community-oriented women who have worked their entire lives to better their community of Khayelitsha. They see the needs of their people, and work to provide solutions. 

45317368_1581067510811200_r.jpegAs the farm grew and more people from the community got involved in gardening, the need for a pack shed arose. A pack shed is a place where local farmers can properly clean and prepare their vegetables before selling them. However, the women stretched it further, birthing the idea of a community centre to benefit more of the community. They named it Hlumani, meaning “grow” in English, for a future of growth and prosperity. For this dream to become a reality, we need your help. 

45317368_1581067579908373_r.jpegThe centre will serve as a packing station and market for vegetables on the one hand, and as a cultural meeting place for Khayelitsha on the other. Other basic needs such as bathrooms and storage are also met. 

45317368_1581067621536347_r.jpegEvery part of Hlumani has been crafted with sustainability and community in mind, from the use of solar power and rainwater, to the multi-purpose rooms where the community can meet. Furthermore, it strengthens links between local farmers and vendors, creating a viable market for further growth. Therein, other persistent issues such as youth unemployment are alleviated. 

45317368_1581067788677181_r.jpegHlumani will be a place to gather for everyone. To eat, to speak, to connect.
