Green Anglicans of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa held a Green Entrepreneurial Competition to stimulate ideas that young people could implement around the green economy
Mpho Nkonkoane , from Church of the Resurrection in Moshoeshoe, Maseru Lesotho is the winner.
She is going to be establishing a seedling nursery
She has identified the gap in the market as people often want to have a home garden and purchase seedlings but there are very few places to buy them and they are often expensive.
She has already started a vegetable patch with other young people at the church and this will enable them to grow more vegetables and also be involved in income generation. They plan to train young people and also to support the church with a portion of the profits as the nursery grows
Congratulation Mpho and may you and your team go from strength to strength.
