Climate Ticket

In 2020, we started to realign the Climate Ticket. We now work directly with numerous small projects and support them directly with a smaller amount each year (max. 15.000 Rands).

The Covid19 lockdown led to extreme food problems among the poor population of South Africa: tens of thousands could no longer earn money as street vendors, employees in cafes and restaurants, etc. – Government measures were meager, so private initiatives set up soup kitchens, which were also supported by us through the Climate Ticket during the Stage 5 lockdown.

Food has a different status in South Africa than in Germany and is an existential problem for most people in the poorer neighborhoods of Cape Town. It is therefore all the more significant that the outbreak of the Corona pandemic has given rise to countless initiatives (CAN = Community Action Network). For example, they are building their own or community gardens or reviving them. This is how new networks and partnerships are created.

In 2020, we have already made some new contacts, and in 2021 Birgit Jakobs and Norbert Kuntz visited the projects we support:

  • Ubuhle Bendalo, Khayelitsha
  • Moya we Khaya Cooperative, Khayelitsha
  • Grandmothers Against Poverty and Aids (GAPA), Khayelitsha
  • Seabord CAN/Gugulethu Urban Farming Initiative (GUFI), Gugulethu
  • Lerotholi Agri Hub, Langa
