The Edulink Project – Food for Learning: linking youth education, food security and life skills with nature, led by our partner Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve (CWBR), is established at the Center for Sustainable Development in the Winelands Biosphere Reserve from the Western Cape in Franschhoek, South Africa.
This project involves the planting of food support trees in slums, schools and rural areas. The goal is to increase food security. A nursery has been set up to produce cuttings of native and fruit trees.
The project also provides for the construction of an “Early Childhood Development” educational center with a kitchen, toilets, a playground and a garden for around 80 children aged 2 to 5 living in the Franschhoek squattercamp.
This project, limited to two years, expires in June 2018 and has a total budget of €178,681.09.

The project “EDULINK: Food for Learning” is entering its second phase with this new project. Just like the first project, it focuses on a sustainable, developing education, in protecting biodiversity, in respecting water-found resources and in the conservation of both energy and the environment.
We have added a new element to our activities: the creation of protected workshops for young individuals with learning difficulties, accomplished with the close collaboration of our partner, Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve with the association, Care Career Connections.
The current project, limited to three years, will finish in June of 2021 and has a total budget of 365.034,04€.
