If you’ve ever heard the expression: ‘Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, but teach him to fish and you’ll feed him for a lifetime,’ you’ll know it rings true for impoverished communities like Sada and Lessyton on the east coast of South Africa.

And while these families battle with famine, poverty and unemployment – all hope’s not lost.

But without any farming equipment to till the soil the compost and seeds are useless!
