Bemagtiging van vroue in die landbou

Dertig werklose vroue in die plaaswerkergemeenskap van Keimoes, in die Noord-kaap, het die afgelope jaar ‘n praktiese ondernemerskapkursus deurloop wat by hulle die hoop geskep het,  om op eie inisiatief, vir hulself, hul gesinne en hulle gemeenskappe ‘n beter toekoms te skep.   Dit is ‘n voorloper-projek wat Agri SA, met die finansiële ondersteuning van Agri SETA, aangebied het en op ‘n groter skaal landwyd wil uitrol as teenfoeter vir die armoede, werkloosheid en gevolglike sosiaal-maatskaplike probleme in landelike gebiede. Lees meer
