The Niya Foundation equips the South African Youth and women with agricultural and business skills, empowering them to ignite lifelong and successful careers. We provide our beneficiaries with business support and skills development through paradigm shift training, Business forums and mentoring so as to develop a mind-set shift, making a significant contribution to the economy, and more specifically the rural communities and township economy.
Our target market are organisations who want to partner with an NGO to assist in the upliftment of the sector in which they and we operate. Clients of ours must share our vision and want to partner with an orgranisation like ours, to make a sustainable, noticeable and long-lasting impact on the community and our beneficiaries. Many companies will allocate the money they spend with us, towards their Socio-Economic Development spend from a B-BBEE perspective.
One of our main focuses is School gardens. They are one of the best ways to supplement meals for Children. Nutrition from fresh produce significantly improves a children’s ability to concentrate and perform better. We understand that education and ongoing support form the basis of sustainable food garden projects, coupled with a unique model of financial independence post implementation, allows the community at large to also benefit.
