  3. 3. Mission and Vision Nourish is a South African non-profit organization dedicated to uplifting local communities, promoting social responsibility and encouraging environmental education. Nourish strives to improve the lives of people and the environment We believe that the environmental integrity of a community is inextricably linked to the strength of its people, body and soul. Our objective is to find an integrative approach to community empowerment that:• educates communities on nutrition, sustainability and the vital role of the environment in their lives• builds capacity in environmental entrepreneurship thereby improving livelihood options and access to good nutrition• provides assistance in creating platforms through which the public and businesses can actualise transparent and sustainable community upliftment• promotes social responsibility amongst the general public Our purpose flows from our passion for Africa as our home, from our belief that improving our local communities is an investment in our collective future. In all aspects of this work, we strive to create an environment of encouragement, empowerment, compassion, and mutual respect. 3
  4. 4. Hi all Founder’s LetterIt is an exquisite honour and dream for me to even be writing this letter. A few years ago Nourish was a small thought in my heart, and a hope that I would carry andwork on into the small hours of the night. Over time, Nourish actually became a reality and I decided to work full time on a purpose that means so much to me--- beingable to bring change and upliftment to people and communities wherever I am. Nourish has truly given me the chance to educate, to change the way communitiessee the environment, and to make lives better. What could be more rewarding?I spent 2012 working full time on making Nourish not only a reality but a success, and I would not have been able to do it without the emotional support, numerouscups of milky coffee and love from many friends, and of course, my family. Financially I have received personal donations to enable Nourish to accomplish so manygoals that, with a lump in my throat, I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU. The change Nourish has made in the lives of children will not fade but will resound foryears to come.This year has not only been rewarding but also, as you can imagine, immensely challenging. At this stage I am the only full time employee and responsibilities as wellas many hopes sit squarely on my shoulders. Sometimes trials, Africa time, dealing with borders and bureaucracies and seeking funding has left me in tears – but this isall part of the learning process and I embrace these challenges as necessary ones that I need to go through in order to grow. I was taught that going through a firerefines gold.. That a bushfire is necessary to clear away the undergrowth so new fresh shoots of grass can grow... Well that is one way of looking at all the late nights,hard work and challenges – they refine us to make sure our goals and purposes are pure -and I truly believe, they are.I would like to thank every single person who got involved not only with Nourish, but with me this year- sharing a glass of wine while brainstorming projects, shoppingfor school uniforms in ridiculously crowded African markets, wrapping present after present late into the night. You have all been a part of making this year of my lifeand Nourish into the success it is!To quote Ralph Arbitelle,~Success is a journey, not a destination ~Thank you all for making the journey fantastic!Finally, I draw my inspiration from the words of Ralph Waldo Emmerson,~To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayalof false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed socialcondition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. ~Look forward to another amazing year filled with inspiration and change!Sarah BergsNourish Founder & Project Manager 4

  8. 8. Travel TreesThe project Travel Trees is about planting both fruit trees and indigenous trees in rural communities and urban slums to have the following effects:• Contribute towards carbon offsetting• Provide long-term food security and nutrition through fruit trees• Provide a platform of education about nature, trees, sustainability and the environment whenever we do tree plantings at schools or orphanages.Nourish has done a few major tree plantings this year:• Earth Day ( with funds from private donors through our Valentines Tree Campaign, as well as trees donated by Belgro Nursary)• Arbour Month Mpumalanga ( with funds from Odie Air, Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA), Garonga, Jemax Aviation, Africa in Focus, Savanna Private Game Reserve, Junxion Communication )• Arbour Month Limpopo ( with funds from private donors as well as Ashtons Tours )• AAOCISDA Volunteer Trip• The Expedition Project 2012 (TEP2012) Trip**NB Accompanying Educational Talks were done at Sigagule Creche, Sihlekisi Primary School, Twalakule Primary School, and Tenteleni Primary SchoolNourish spent R 3 639 this financial year on trees alone. This does not include costs associated with tree plantings such as educational talks, fertilizer, compost, transport to schools etc. which almost matches the costs of the trees themselves.Nourish planted 92 trees which were distributed as follows:• 6 – AACOSIDA orphanage in Maputo, Mozambique• 10 – Thuthuzela Aid Community Centre, Banakekeleni Orphanage, and Joyce’s Orphanage in Alexandra Township, Gauteng, South Africa• 10 – Tenteleni Primary School & Masihambisane Combined School, Kanyamazane, township, Mpumalanga, South Africa• 62 – various orphans and vulnerable homes in Sigagule, Keyelani and Gazita communities, as well as a community vegetable garden, Limpopo, South Africa• 4 –Twalakule Primary School, Dwarsloop, Mpumalanga, South Africa 8

  10. 10. Green Fingers The concept of this project is to support vulnerable homes, orphanages and communities with sustainable vegetable gardens that they can harvest to increase nutrition and sell for profit should their be a large crop. This profit can be used to buy food or ploughed back into the garden.Nourish has successfully implemented vegetable gardens at the following:• AACOSIDA Orphanage in Maputo, Mozambique• Thuthuzela Aid Community Centre in Alexandra Township, Gauteng, South AfricaOn average these vegetable gardens as well as compost/ wood shavings cost R 500.00 per garden. Nourish tailors each one to the individual needs of the orphanage and their specific problems, whether it be lack of space, rats or unfertile soil etc and aims to do this through creative and dynamic ideas such as:• Raised bed vegetable gardens• Using cow dung, as well as old bones, and rusted tins to add nutrients to the soil• Potatoes layered in stacked tyres• Planting in old tiresMost gardens include the following vegetables: potatoes, maize, onions, tomatoes, spinach, green peppers, carrots, and/or beetroot. 10

  12. 12. Secret Santa This annual project is a branch of Santa Shoebox whereby a child ( orphaned, poor or vulnerable ) who will not receive a Christmas present, or who has never received a present, is given one by a sponsor. Each gift, wrapper colourfully in a shoe box, contains the following items which are both fun and useful for the child:• Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, washcloth, sweets, school supplies, a toy, an outfit of clothing.On average a shoebox will cost R 200.00 to put together. Many sponsors choose to put together their own shoebox, in which case Nourish will provide the name, sex and age of a child. Alternatively sponsors deposit the funds into the Nourish account and the box gets packed on their behalf. This year Nourish packed and distributed 16 Secret Santa Shoeboxes. Our target children were orphaned, vulnerable and abused children staying at Thuthuzela Aid Community Centre. The boxes were personally sponsored by private individuals. 12

  22. 22. Community Craft Centre & LibraryThe idea for the community craft and education centre was initiated in November 2011 whenPrince Nakuna from Save the Elephants – SA suggested that Nourish should approach thelocal chieftains of the Sigagule area to obtain land. Nourish’s first meeting with Induna Nyathiwas initiated by Prince. Since then, with assistance from Paul Mathonsi ( a Nourish director) ,who acted as our representative and translator, several meetings were held with localmunicipalities, the elders of the community and Induna Mnisi, who holds authority over thelocal land requests.In August 2012 the Nourish application for a site on the Orpen road was approved andgranted. This land is to be used to build a community craft centre, where Trash 2 Treasurecrafts will be sold, as well as education centre, where Nourish will have a library, offeringeducational talks and computer lessons. It is the aim to have a bore hole and communityvegetable garden on the site. In August 2012 the Nourish team planted the corner poles, aswell as did a Site Development plant to allow for further development. Plans are underwayto clear thorny vegetation off the land in September with assistance from communitymembers, Nourish interns as well as students from Southern Cross.In the coming financial year Nourish will fence the land and seek funding to begin building. 22
  23. 23. Alexandra Township Photography Project This project was inspired in March 2012 when the founder, Sarah Bergs spent a month in Alexandra Township living at Thuthuzela Aid Centre. With this project Nourish aims to teach township youth photographic skills, to encourage awareness and tourism into Alexandra township as a form of upliftment and ultimately, through the involvement of both novices and professionals, produce a picture coffee table book on Township Life.• Nourish’s first step forward was involvement from Christopher Rimmer, a professional photographer based in Australia who took time out in July 2012 to assist us with a day walking photo shoot of Alexandra Township.• Nourish met with Fiona Peake, editor of Pixmag, a photographic magazine, who is keen to get involved with photographic lessons as well as offering Nourish a slot in her magazine.• Nourish also met with Ma Afrika Tikkun, the community centre in Alexandra township to start discussions on having photographic lessons with children, youth and unemployed adults.• Jenna Munro, a student from the University of Pretoria and semi-professional photographer, has also become involved not only to assist with photography in the township, but also to also assist with meetings and admin related to the project. In the coming year Nourish hopes roll out monthly photographic lessons at the Ma Afrika Tikkun community centre, as well as to generate interest in the project both within Alexandra and externally. It is envisaged that this will be a 2-3 year project. 23

  25. 25. Beneficiaries Nourish works to support and uplift people and the planet. In particular our involvement is with orphans and vulnerable children as well as with schools in rural communities and urban slums.

When Nourish first met AACOSIDA they provided shelter, food and support to over 60 orphaned, neglected, and abused children. In the interim period their funding has been stopped and grants have reached an end. They are now completely dependent on private donors for funding.

Nourish is now able to shelter, feed and support 20 children. In the coming year Nourish to train Dumsane and Clementina in administration as well as how to operate a creche so as to better their skills. Nourish intends to continue the close and supportive relationship. 26
  27. 27. Thuthuzela Thuthuzela Aid Community Centre , based in Alexandra Township in Gauteng, South Africa was founded and is run by Elizabeth Monyela, with the support of her staff team. The orphanage houses 16 children and their creche facility cares for over 40 children daily. Nourish became involved with Thuthuzela in October 2011 and since then has provided them with the following support:• Planted a vegetable garden November 2011• Secret Santa presents for each child and a Christmas tree for the orphanage December 2011.• Took over the daily running of the orphanage for a month to provide support so that Elizabeth could take annual leave (for the first time in 6 years) March 2012• Facilitated the donation of toys for the creche from a private donor March 2012• Planted indigenous trees April 2012 Nourish visits Thuthuzela numerous times throughout the year, and it has since become our base for many initiatives in Alexandra township. 27

  34. 34. InternshipsNourish had its first 2 international interns this year from July – September 2012 • Regina Bosl was a German intern who was studying her Masters degree in International Relations and Development Politics at the University of Duisburg-Essen. She found Nourish online when she was searching for a hands on experience of a grassroots sustainable project where she could learn and gain experience as well as make a difference. Her time here was challenging, but she broke many personal boundaries and left with a true passion for the people and heart of Africa. • Ria Hooper was a British intern who is a professional chef by trade. Being between jobs she decided to come to South Africa to discover first hand exactly what Nourish is accomplishing on the ground. Ria hopes to make her trips to SA annually.
