Rural communities in Africa, especially women and youth, are the most marginalized. They are characterized by extreme poverty, food insecurity, high unemployment, and lack of social and economic opportunities. KwaZulu-Natal has the second largest population of the nine provinces in South Africa with poverty and inequality levels being highest amongst the rural municipalities.

In addition, the rural communities lack resources for agricultural production such as land, capital, finance, appropriate technologies, inputs, know-how, agricultural training, extension, and market services. As a result, most households do not produce enough food for their needs.
