Agri SA to empower Northern Cape Women



JOHANNESBURG – AGRI South Africa, the local agricultural industry association, said it would be conducting a training project aimed at enhancing the social and economic well-being of women in the Keimoes area in the Northern Cape Province.

Set to be launched next Monday, the pilot project aims to empower identified women with relevant skills to improve their livelihoods.

These women are currently highly dependent on their male partners and/or social grants for a living.

According to Agri SA, the project will entail the development of knowledge and skills of the women, empowering them to be economic active and so-doing contribute towards a sustainable livelihood for themselves, their families and the broader community.

“The women will acquire entrepreneurial skills and other related abilities in, for example, the manufacturing of clothing, gardening and food production as well as early childhood development.”

It said various role players had shown an interest in the project and would be involved in the training project as such and possible subsequent activities in this regard.
