Partnering to Expand Food Security Initiatives

HomeGrowers and Blue Label Telecoms have partnered to expand food security initiatives through financial support. This collaboration has enabled HomeGrowers to enhance their efficiency and create economic opportunities for previously marginalized communities.

By providing access to bigger informal markets, Blue Label Telecoms has facilitated the expansion of HomeGrowers’ reach and audience, thus increasing their impact on local economies.

The financial support from Blue Label Telecoms has helped HomeGrowers in their mission to create a more secure food system and ensure that communities have access to the necessary food resources.

With over 5094 fresh herbs and vegetables, including strawberries, successfully planted across various informal sites in Johannesburg, the NGO has provided healthy food to hundreds of children and community members.

In addition, HomeGrowers has developed a container gardening system that uses hydroponics, making it possible to grow food in even the most challenging environments without compromising on nutrition or taste.

All kids who come to our Clubs sign up as Club Members. This symbolizes that they are a part of something bigger and they want to be a part of the Club.


One of our key objectives is to ensure each Club Member develops a meaningful and mentoring relationship with our Staff, who can ultimately guide them towards a great future.
