The main objective of the Solidarity project is the skills training programme for the youths in areas that were affected by the July 2021 unrest in Gauteng and KZN. The skills training programme entails mobilizing and recruiting potential youths in target communities, identifying, and establishing community skills training sites, and training youths on the establishment of urban food gardens projects.
Technical skills training on urban farming methods with a focus on vegetable gardens and record keeping was conducted and starter pack materials were provided to participants after training to transition them into Agripreneurs with the guidance and mentorship of Hand in Hand in the Gauteng and KZN province.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND OUTCOMES
The project managed to reach 468 targeted participants and provided each of the participants with started pack materials.
