I'm interested in working with people who share my passion for creative adventures and making positive change in the world through good sustainable business practices.
Rachel Prince is a food activist, social entrepreneur, a professional communications expert, chronic expat and producer at the Sibahle Community Project.
AREAS WE WORK IN:
Meaning ''we are beautiful”, the Sibahle Community Project aims to create a sustainable network of people who work together to feed and care for the community using readily available land resources, and some human ingenuity at public health clinics - after all, good food is good medicine.
Through the Sibahle soup kitchen, the team has served 200 meals a week for 5 years to the patients of the Tladi TB health clinic in Soweto. Many patients, including the chronically ill, struggle with taking their medication on an empty stomach, so their meals are served early in the day. Overtime, the Sibahle Community Project hopes this will improve the overall health of all patients at the clinic.
The first Sibahle natural veggie garden is onsite at the Tladi clinic and uses natural growing principals with no chemicals or GMOs. Sibahle is creating a place of bounty and beauty, focussing on planting indigenous, nutritious, drought resistant plants. Their farmers work hard all year to grow the veggies that are used in the soup kitchen. They educate, and learn from elders, patients, fellow farmers, and children from the local primary school.
