Gabigabi Columba leaders believe that each one of them can make a difference and together they can make a significant change. They decided to form one group of leaders together with peer educators and RCL members. They initiated two project as a starting point to make this change possible.
Paper recycling project as a form of fundraising for their breakfast project and school garden project.
The main objective for the garden project was to plant vegetables and offer the harvests to the Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) to alleviate poverty. However they realised that running a school garden requires not only horticultural knowledge and skills but teamwork and collaboration. They acquired necessary skills the Durban Solid Waste (DSW) who offered guidance and network the school to other stakeholders. The purpose for this is to empower OVCs to start their own garden with their families.
