Abalimi Bezekhaya - farmers of home

managed by k. hentschel (Communication)

About us

Abalimi's work can be best described by looking at our target group, core business and target areas.

Our Target Group are living in vast informal settlements, often referred to as townships to the North-East of Cape Town, where up to one million people now live, mostly in shacks and matchbox houses. Approximately 40% of its people are unemployed. The majority speak Xhosa and are recent arrivals from the Eastern Cape - the former apartheid homelands of Transkei and Ciskei.


Our Core Business is to assist our Target Group to, firstly, combat poverty by growing food sustainably, using organic methods, at home and in community gardens and, secondly, to plant water wise indigenous trees and flora in schools and streets, in order to transform the dune-sands of the Cape Flats into a sustainable water-wise urban environment.


Our Target Area is the Cape Flats - including Khayelitsha, Nyanga, Phillipi-Browns Farm, Crossroads and Gugulethu. The Cape Flats are ecologically sensitive dune sand areas which contain some of the most threatened floral species within the unique Cape Floral Kingdom, a World Heritage Biome. Thus we strive through all our activities and projects to conserve what is left and to renew what has been destroyed.

Donations that cannot be used for the project

  Mirjam u.  25 July 2016 at 02:44 PM

Dear donors,
when managers of a project haven't requested a payout over the course of a longer period, the German law and our terms of use provide that we (gut.org gemeinnützige AG, operator of betterplace.org) use the money for our tax-deductible purposes. The same applies to the cancellation of a project, where the manager of the project is unable to realize it.

Therefore we will use these donations for the following purposes:

Thanks for your support,
the betterplace.org-team
