Home Based Gardening

The project is currently being held at the Mariannhill, Ninivah, Umzumbe and Isipofu Islamic Centres. The Duaat and ladies of the communities work together to cultivate, nurture and produce fresh vegetables so that people could provide meals for their families or even sell the vegetables to generate income. The objective of this project is to empower individuals with gardening skills. Alhamdullillah, the project has lifted off and is progressing on a sound footing.

Apart from feeding the students and the ladies running the programme, some vegetables are sold to the community. In 2012 the gardeners were able to harvest more than expected. At one centre (Niniva Islamic Centre) the income earned from the selling, assisted the centre to buy some necessities.
