Urban agriculture in Brazil’s favelas

Urban agriculture in Brazil’s favelas | Behavioral Economics | Scoop.it

"Established in 2004 by local social entrepreneur Hans Dieter Temp, an organisation called Cidades sem Fome (Cities Without Hunger) is working to reduce hunger and joblessness among some of the most economically deprived areas of Sao Paulo, through urban agriculture.
Local community members are given the tools and training to start producing fruit and vegetables on unused land acquired by the organisation. This not only brings much needed quality produce and food security to the community, but it is also addressing the issue of unemployment – a constant problem in Brazil’s favelas."

 

A wonderful project that is not only dealing with malnutrition and unemployment but is contributing to people's sense of importance, which is invaluable.

 

A shining example that shows that the way forward is through people working together.


Via Dawn Lester, Sepp Hasslberger
