COMMUNITY GARDEN PROJECT
Project: Community Food Security and Nutrition -Small scale farmers( Economic Empowerment of rural communities through Equitable Participation in Agricultural Value Chains).
The essence of Great North Business Incubator(GNBI)’s work is captured in its simple motto: growing food, growing community. Rural agricultural development is GNBI’s one of the main program and Small holder farmers development (community gardens) are the roots of GNBI. GNBI empowers people to improve their lives and communities through rural community gardening and connecting urban consumers to rural farmers. To this date GNBI has assisted with the establishment of 30 community gardens in Limpopo , Northwest ,Mpumalanga and Free state. These gardens provide raised beds that community members can grow food for themselves and their families.
Great North Business Incubator(GNBI) is an organization committed to developing a sustainable and just community food system. We do this by bringing together diverse groups of people , with a focus on community development, to establish community gardens, and community green spaces. We strive to develop and empower community members of all ages and abilities. We endeavour to achieve the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDG):
Community gardens strengthen neighbours, as communities work together to make a change in their community. GNBI aids in the process to enhance , unite, and empower people to produce their own food, beautify their environment , and share their passion for the value of growing wholesome food.
In 2018 GNBI celebrated its anniversary by launching a campaign to grow its community garden network to 60 gardens by end of 2023.
Beginning of January 2023, more communities can attend training with GNBI on how to start a new community garden and apply for technical and financial assistance to support them in creating a garden in their community. After attending the 3-hour training session, a community beneficiary can decide whether to pursue the initiative.
Building a powerful movement of Agri- entrepreneurs in rural communities; by developing core and agricultural life skills not just for their own benefit –but empowered to use these skills to help others” thus what GNBI is advocating for in poor communities.
HUMANITARIAN RELIEF PROJECT
Project: Humanitarian Relief Aid program Jaggersfontein
Poverty and crisis have always been inextricably linked, and this relationship stands stark in the current Jaggersfontein context. The poorest populations in fragile communities are inherently vulnerable to shocks, have the least capacity to manage when crisis hits. While government is starting to focus its sight on pandemic recovery, the poorest populations are falling behind. GNBI comes to action when disaster hits hard on the poor communities .
The main goal of GNBI humanitarian aid is to save lives, ease human distress and aid all people who are in the most need. In 2022 GNBI, partnered with Old Mutual Insure , to provide relief aid for the Jaggersfontein dam collapse affected 100 families. Our passion, soul, and heart to saving lives is central to our humanitarian programmes. We bring hope to the despaired and joy to the tearful affected and vulnerable poor people.
