First beetroot from the gardens

The "Parenting Worx" families that have plots in the Sanbaai "Community Vegetable Garden" were exstatic to harvest their first batch of beetroot, which were giants. subsequently the spinach, tomato's, carrots and mealies have also been very successful, providing nutritious "food security" and revenue for these families.   Well Done !

The HRT "Social Enterprise"

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust has developed a "sustainability strategy" to limit the challenges of getting "grant funding" from government, funding agencies and business in these difficult economic times. The strategy is built around the establishment of a "Social Enterprise" in line with global trends.


Non-Profit Organisations - The Current Funding Model is NOT Sustainable

Why ? What are the alternatives ?

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust, like many other NPO’s / NGO’s, is threatened by the current "grant funding" models in South Africa, where most NPO’s are totally dependent on "grant funding from Government, Funding Agencies, Business, Individual Donors, Sponsors and fund raising events.
