A local woman recently became the change she wanted to see when she started a community garden to help locals in her village. According to her Facebook post in popular group ImStaying, she started the garden to help youths.
Zandile Mthembu explained that the youngsters in her village do not have much to do but drink a lot of alcohol and sit around being unproductive. This is when she started the garden which she uses to rehabilitate those who've developed a drinking addiction.
In the post, she also explains how her garden not only employs ten people, it also employs five temporary staff members. Zandile's hopes of making a difference are also achieved as many are fed and kept busy working in the garden fields.
"Hi everyone this is my food project. I had started in my village I employed 10 people permanently and 5 temps. The whole project is aimed to change lives!
"I am doing rehabilitation through farming. Youth in my village have nothing to do. Only drinking each and every day. By this project aims to give them something to keep them busy.and just to have hope in life!" she wrote.
Zandile also explains that one of her main challenges is getting water to help her ad her staff as well as the youth to grow food in the garden. She also called out to anyone who can help for some assistance.
Her post was met warmly by Stayers who commended her for making a difference.
