Project: Greening Nyanga
Area: Community Development
Coordinator: Stephanie Kilroe

The Greening Nyanga project is a partnership between Etafeni (in particular our Fit for Life, Fit for Work graduates), the City of Cape Town, the Department of Agriculture, St Bernard’s and St Ignatius Catholic parishes and others to keep Etafeni green and beautiful and to plant trees, grass and food gardens throughout Nyanga. This will be to promote environmental responsibility, create communal spaces for outdoor enjoyment, reduce dependency on commercial food markets and ensure food security, and instil pride in a healthy and beautiful Nyanga.  It will also provide employment and self-esteem for unemployed young men and women who live in Nyanga, reducing their vulnerability to crime, substance abuse and other unhealthy life choices.
