Durban, South Africa
As a part of the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Namenyi Project Hope holds AIDS awareness seminars for the students of many rural area schools around Durban. In addition to education, there is little debate as to the integral part that nutrition plays in HIV prevention, treatment and mitigation. Namenyi Project Hope undertakes feeding programs in schools, orphanages and clinics where a high percentage of the children are impacted by AIDS.
Namenyi Project Hope also assists rural area schools in becoming self-sufficient as far as food is concerned, by training them to grow and harvest high nutrition vegetables. Food tunnels costing $270 along with a set of seedlings provides 12-14 harvests.
