City of Windhoek 

 

The World Future Council and the City of Windhoek have been engaging for a number of years on programmes for food and nutrition security. The cooperation is inspired by the celebrated food policy system of the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte.

The “Department of Economic Development & Community Services” of the City is responsible for the Farm Okukuna project. Witch experience in reaching out to the community, the City is committed to enhancing food and nutrition security. The City is currently putting up fencing and will hire and pay an on-site care taker and security in the long-term.

It will also provide a connection to electricity and water (semi-purified and fresh).

 

Please support us

  • We need a drip irrigation system (please donate via betterplace.org or via our Donate page)

  • We need funding/donations or in-kind contributions to fix up the houses on site (windows and pains, bathroom, kitchen, paint, locks)
