David Letsoalo is from Limpopo Province. He holds a Diploma in Project Management. David developed a passion for farming in 2011 through Mr Manamela, is a community activist dedicated to agriculture and food sustainability. David then started attending workshops and skills training through various networking organisations and government institutions of agriculture. This created an opportunity to engage with local community-based farmers to share and transfer skills and to sell their produce to potential markets. This in turn led to the registration in 2013 of an organisation called Tswaranang Youth and Community Development. The organisation works with farmers on crop planting and vegetable farming of tomatoes, potatoes, cabbages and butternut squash. They also help farmers in checken and egg production, as well as production of chillies for making chilli sauce. The aim and vision is to create access to necessary agricultural information and skills for local farmers and entire communities of rural Limpopo so they can view agriculture as a viable business that can transform their lives. The smart projector will add an advantage to move focus to the reality of food safety and quality and ultimately make communities self-sustained with knowledge about food security.
