The recent outbreak of the Corona virus and extended lockdown have again emphasised the importance of food security and the ability of individuals and communities to sustain themselves for extended periods of time. One of the ways to ensure this, is the establishment of sustainable urban and rural agricultural projects – from subsistence level to full commercial ventures.
During our years of work in rural urban and deep rural areas, we have met a large number of rural entrepreneurs across most of the agricultural value chain – both livestock and crop production. We receive numerous calls each week for assistance and business support from these agri-entrepreneurs. Now, more than ever, there is an increased urgency to support sustainable interventions in the sector.
Our Agri4Change programme was designed after extensive work and research in both metropolitan and rural communities and is aimed at launching agri-entrepreneurs in communities and from there grow the value chain to support local and regional economic development.
At Angels, it is part of our vision to create a world in which people identify their own solutions and can provide for their communities. For this, we need your help.
