French support to the Namibian Civil Society

Food Security and Income Generating Activities as priorities

 

The French embassy under the Social Fund for Development (SFD) will allocate N$ 250 000 to support a project presented by Judea Harvest Namibia and the Urban and Peri Urban Horticulture Consultancy (UPH Namibia),  using low cost VegiTunnels to produce vegetables  for improved food security and nutrition for vulnerable people. The targeted beneficiaries are living in urban areas in Namibia  in Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja.

 

The overall goal of the project is to reduce poverty, hunger and malnutrition in the Namibian population and improve food nutrition at household level as a contribution to the Millennium Development Goals and Income Generating Activities.

 

The specific objective of the project is to help poor and vulnerable groups, including the HIV affected communities, to have access to nutritious fruits and vegetables to enrich their diets and to generate income to improve their livelihoods.

 

The targeted beneficiaries of the project will be receive training in horticulture, nutrition and entrepreneurship, that will enable their day care centres and communities in the townships to produce, eat and sell high quality horticultural products throughout the year.
