entrepreneurial & leadership training in an agricultural context
Identify and develop entrepreneurial thought leaders with strong ethics operating in their own communities.
Food security & improved nutrition and breaking the poverty cycle, enabling ethical business thinking.
Equip & empower vulnerable parents in South Africa to be present in their homes, to meet current challenges of food security and family unity and to have a multi-generational effect through embracing entrepreneurship.
Agri Vision Foundation is a Non-Profit Company with the main vision to develop entrepreneurial thought leaders with strong ethics, operating in their own communities.
The secondary vision is food security and improved nutrition, breaking the cycle of poverty and entitlement, and enabling ethical business thinking. This creates opportunities for fathers to generate an income locally, allowing family units to remain intact.
We invite likeminded organisations and individuals to join us on this journey of regeneration.
where it all started
Our community restoration activities commenced formally in 2015, when we started meeting weekly with people living on the streets and staying in the night shelter in Stellenbosch. As our leadership group grew, we could take on new projects.
We started supporting the Hesketh King Salvation Army programme in 2018 and met regularly with both the juveniles (6-week programme) and adults (3-month programme) recovering from substance addiction. Seeing the brokenness in the lives of the adults and older children, we realised that we had to make an impact on the younger generation. In 2021, we started volunteering at the Youth Centre in Stellenbosch for vulnerable children, where the focus was doing life with the kids. Some of the highlights was teaching the children to cycle, swim and fish.
In 2020, we started reaching out to the early morning commuters as they disembark from trains, busses and taxis and walk to the Stellenbosch town centre. This outreach action is a combination of breakfast handouts, listening to their concerns, and encouraging them. The meetings with the street and shelter people, as well as the visits to the Youth Centre kids, are continuing, but the leadership role has been handed over to new volunteers. In 2023, we sensed that our time of being involved exclusively in the Boland had come to an end and that we should start family- and community-based projects in materially poorer communities in the Eastern, Southern and Western Cape.
