Kwanalu launches new transformation initiative to mark 20th anniversary

To mark its 20th anniversary, Kwanalu, has launched a “20 minutes of transformation” campaign which calls on all KZN farmers and their families to give back 20 minutes of their time – 1 minute for each year of Kwanalu’s proud existence – to uplift and improve the lives of those in their local communities.

The initiative calls on farmers to donate their time and skills for 20 minutes on the 24th April 2018 – the inception date of Kwanalu 20 years on. This is a solution-orientated approach designed to promote community development and social upliftment for the benefit of all.

Examples of projects include preparing and planting a community vegetable garden; collecting and donating books for a local school or community library or even donating and installing a JoJo tank – the idea being that each district identifies what their local community needs.

Kwanalu recognises that many individual farmers and Farmer’s Associations across KZN are already committed to social responsibility programmes within their local communities and commends them for their efforts. This campaign aims to showcase the good work that our farmers in KZN are doing to create meaningful change for those who need it the most and encourage those who want to do something to make a difference to get involved and do so.

Projects will be driven by each farming district, co-ordinated by the local Farmer’s Association with support and direction from Kwanalu.
