A new aquaponics facility was launched in Soweto to enrich residents and eradicate poverty in the area.
The City of Joburg donated the facility, near Elias Motsoaledi Clinic in Orlando. Inmed Partnerships for Children, with the help of the Mondelez International Foundation, run aquaponics plants which reach up to 100,000 primary school learners a year.
Lukholweni Primary School in Orlando will be one of the beneficiaries of the hi-tech invention.
The principal, Bongani Luthuli, said: “It would be a disaster if we were to get back the land and our generation isn't equipped with the necessary skills to sustain a living.”
