Micro projects financed by the German Missions in South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland
The micro-project scheme is part of Germany's overall development co-operation that contributes to poverty alleviation and improvement of living standards, to cover the basic needs of the poorest social classes, especially in rural areas.
Diepsloot is a densely populated township in northern Johannesburg. The non-profit organization “Afrika Tikkun” has taken on the task of helping the people of that area out of poverty and reducing their lack of prospects. The German Embassy Pretoria is proud to support “Afrika Tikkun” with 80,000 Rand in a unique and creative project. The finances were used to set up an organic vegetable garden.
