Winning the 2013 Drivers of Change Award in the civil society category has led South Africa’s Siyavuna Abalimi Development Centre to forge exciting partnerships with the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Kwazulu Natal and the Union College (USA).
“We have received a great deal of interest from researchers and volunteers from abroad. Having researchers studying our model and its impact has been beneficial to the organisation”
Siyavuna tackles the inter-related challenges of poverty, food insecurity and low levels of economic participation through their Sustainable Community Investment Programme (agri-scip) designed to empower rural organic farmers. Visit www.siyavuna.org.za for more details.
