Image: How FoodForward SA’ Second Harvest Programme Uses Agri Surplus to Boost Nutritious Food Basket. This is yet another example of how partnership makes possible the achievement of reaching several of our Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs).

Since around 50% of agricultural surplus is wasted, FoodForward SA used this untapped opportunity to recover agri surplus to augment FoodForward SA’s foodbanking model, to more effectively address the growing problem of food insecurity in our country.   Read More...

The biggest challenge for offenders, once they complete their prison term and re-enter society is to participate meaningfully and productively in sustained, legitimate economic activity to earn a living and support their families. The academic entry level for film and TV production is historically low and success relies primarily on raw talent, creativity, passion, application, persistence and rigorous self-discipline. This provides a unique opportunity for offenders and parolees to be reintegrated into society and the economy through this sector.
