Man Starts Community Garden with No Water and No Money in One of World’s Poverty Nodes

Acornhoek, South Africa is one of the world’s poverty nodes, where there is very little water, 70% unemployment and 1 in 3 people is HIV+. Overcoming challenges is part of life here. Meet Trygive Nxumalo, one of the leaders enrolled in Seeds of Light’s Acornhoek Leadership Forum, who is passionate about serving his community. He has successfully started a food garden without having water or money, and is now feeding the vulnerable in his village. This video tells the amazing story of Try’s garden and how he achieved what many thought was impossible – through ingenuity, determination, heart and a passion to help others.

Seeds of Light finds community leaders like Try and empowers them to achieve their visions – sustainable projects such as: elder care, orphan centers, conservation projects, rural enterprise and tourism, youth and women’s empowerment projects, art and craft training, community gardens, and more. We know many champions like Try who just need a little bit of help getting started in order to create projects that will help an entire village.
