IN OUR COMMUNITY
We promote environmentally sensitive livelihoods:
The AkaAni Organic Farm and Eco-Village empowers women and the youth in the community of the Oaks. We received community land from the village elder, so called "chief", next to the river and right on the doorstep to the famous Kruger National Park.
We are in the process of establishing a selfsustaining community farm, where women will learn about organic agreoculture, as well as receive bussiness training to sell their products.
Therefore we have partnered with Like Mountains, a local producer and distiller of certified organic essential oils, that employs mostly women.
