Guided by the United Nations Sustainable Goals (SDGs) Khuthaza Foundation focuses on three critical objectives – No Poverty, Zero Hunger and Responsible Consumption and Production. We believe that shared food sovereignty is the key to eradicating hunger and poverty; we work alongside communities to establish sustainable food gardens as a primary way to create food security in informal settlements, rural and peri-urban areas.

• Access – Growing vegetable gardens in communities where there is involvement and access
• Utilization – Effective harvesting, sharing and education on preserving and keeping fresh produce for longer
• Stability – Creating a sustainable model from seed to fork
• Mitigation – Slowing the rate of global warming through Carbon Sequestration
• Adaptation – Changing our behaviour to adapt to the climate change, rethinking water and land usage

HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Khuthaza Foundation works with organisations and communities in impoverished areas to identify sustainable projects that are meaningful to the community as a whole. We plan, organise and host events and invite members of the public and businesses to get involved in whatever way they can. Some prefer to help with funding, while others choose to give up their valuable time to join us at an event. Volunteers get to put in a physically rewarding day’s work or offer much needed moral support. We’re usually outside in nature whether it be cleaning up the environment, building and harvesting vegetable gardens or planting trees. It’s always fun and you are sure to come away with ‘helper’s high.’
Khuthaza Foundation partners with organisations and businesses that share our vision of eradicating poverty and hunger. We have partnered up with multiple partners from a variety of different industries. One thing they all have in common is a strong sense of responsibility to make a tangible contribution to uplifting communities in a considered, inclusive way.
