Woza Nami Learning Journey

According to results of a survey conducted by the Medical Research Council as part of the Woza Nami project, nearly a third of community members had eaten no fruit or vegetables the day before.


On 11 October, more than 30 people, including representatives of local and provincial government, donor organisations, academics and researchers, urban farmers, and grassroots organisations working within food systems participated in the Woza Nami Learning Journey.

A local vendor sells in the heat all day. She resells produce that she buys elsewhere including groundnuts and amadumbe.

Participants had the opportunity to journey through various aspects of the Woza Nami project located in Inchanga, to meet and interact with people who are either directly affected by the challenge of food insecurity, and/or those who are trying to address it.

One home one garden farmers with raised beds were spared the worst of the March floods.

After the physical journey across Woza Nami sites, participants came together at the Inchanga Hub to engage in facilitated dialogue to make sense of what they had experienced and to understand the implications for the future. Various potential ideas were generated for the future, collectively generated by the different parties, partners, and stakeholders.

Backyard gardens are growing a myriad of crops.
