Petra Diamonds Limited Sustainability Report 201244COMMUNITYCommunityCase study: The Vukuzenzele Agricultural ProjectVukuzenzele Agricultural ProjectThe Vukuzenzela Agricultural Project in Refilwe, near the Cullinan mine, fulfils all our local community project objectives, in that it assists with job creation; poverty alleviation; skills transfer; and enterprise development.One of the priority CSI projects at the Cullinan mine is the Vukuzenzele Agricultural Project in Refilwe. Refilwe (Region 5, in the City of Tshwane Municipality) is an area with a high unemployment rate and the key objectives of the project are therefore to reduce poverty and unemployment in the area.The Vukuzenzele Agricultural Project was founded in 1997 by a local women's group, who saw an opportunity to use land for agricultural purposes. Whilst the project has faced numerous challenges, during recent years it has gathered momentum. The project remains a predominantly female co-operative, consisting of 15 women and two men. Petra has partnered with the Tshwane University of Technology, Sombhulula (a local NGO) and the Department of Agriculture to help provide training, mentorship and advice to the project members. So far, training has focused on core business skills, such as computer skills, business management and product marketing. Currently the project sells its vegetables to the Tshwane Fresh Produce market and the local community. A key focus has been to generate more income streams to sustain the business and, as part of this objective, initiatives including a seedling nursery, chicken farming and flower production have been successfully developed, and plans are well underway for the development of a restaurant and craft centre for visitors.Plans for the future development of the project include the potential for the municipality to donate the land to the project and the development of a packing house, to be donated by the Department of Agriculture. The construction of a packing house could enable the project to supply the Pretoria Market and other supermarkets, generating further revenues for the local community. In addition, there is the potential for an on-site chicken broiler and for seedlings to be sold to other co-operatives involved in vegetable farming.Rachel Kgomo, Director of the Vukuzenzele project, commented, "The Vukuzenzele project plays an important role in the community and all our lives. I joined the project in 1998, after I was retrenched from my previous job. I wanted to do something that could help put food on the table for my family, as well as contributing to my community. The fresh vegetables and produce help feed families who now no longer need to travel all the way to Cullinan in order to buy vegetables. The project members, their families and the local community are thankful to Petra Diamonds because they have played a very significant role in insuring this project is a success. They have supported the project financially and also through the mentoring scheme. If it wasn't for Petra, the project wouldn't be where it is today."Cabbages ready for sale at the Tshwane Market
