Thanks to the Internship students from Bucknell University, a leading university located in the USA, a partnership with the University of Cape Town's SHAWCO, lives were benefited at vulnerable communities in Call 2 Care's care.
The students participated in a program that deliver just some of the following notable results:
- Improvements being made to The iGardi Project's water-wise vegetable garden design, frameworks, and educational material to be more affordable and accessible than ever before.
- Participation in a Leadership training and development program leading to improvements to organisational product structures and processes.
- Delivering a hands-on approach to community development by connecting and improving lives on site at each beneficiary with Call 2 Care's community development services.
During this specific event, photos highlight the students spending time teaching our Gugulethu community how to grow vegetables sustainably as part of Call 2 Care's The iGardi Project.
This is an example of Call 2 Care's holistic approach to community development that improve lives of beneficiaries in our care.
