The annual Christmas Craft Market at the end of November followed by the Big Give online campaign in early December, together they raised just over £20,000. A huge thank you to all our donors and supporters.
We will be using some of this money to fund a further exchange project for young people. Last year a group of young people from Alex township spent a month learning about regenerative agriculture on the the Kidlinks Small Farm Incubator (KSFI) in the Eastern Cape. Fired with enthusiasm they returned to Alex where Gumboots has acquired a piece of land which they now are cultivating and growing their own organic vegetables both to feed their families and hopefully generate a small income. This year’s exchange will also include some young people from the rural villages near the farm.
