My name is Ivy Mpenyane, from Mandhlakazi village. I graduated from the Fit For Life Fit For Work programme in 2010.
After graduation, I attended Tompie Seleka Agricultural College. It was a blessing because I was one of 15 selected to start the farm at Mswazi Dam in 2011 as a learner. While working at Mswazi Dam Food Security I got an opportunity to further my studies with Madzivhandhila Agricultural College to do plant production.
I was then given the chance to set up the Centre garden and to establish home food gardens for vulnerable women-headed households.
Currently I am supporting 400 families. Today I have agricultural knowledge and skills and work that pays me a salary and helps my community.
