Our Impact is What Matters

Letter from our CEO, Marisia Geraci 

HPSA's 70 years of working with small holder farmers has lifted 18.5 million families out of poverty. If we want to achieve our mission of ending hunger and poverty, we have to continue to discover and develop innovative solutions to take communities beyond addressing just the needs of handfuls of families. We are now focused on empowering groups of thousands at a time to collaborate in order to take advantage of economies of scale and participate in markets as an organised group. Building this social capital working with farmers existing agricultural assets to increase productivity will create positive sustainable change. 

We are committed to running an efficient, high-performance organization. We believe investments are necessary for meaningful long-term growth. The most important measure of a charity is impact, and ours can be seen in the lives of more than 8050 individuals we’ve helped lift out of hunger and poverty.

In 2012/13 HPSA directly assisted 8030 individuals in South Africa.

In 2013/14, 1000 new small holder farming families will become part of the cycle of positive change, And they in turn will pass on possibilities and shared successes to others in their communities.

None of this work would be possible without the dedication of the thousands of small holder farmers with whom we work and our loyal supporters and partners. 

INVESTMENTS YIELD RESULTS

HPSA is in the business of helping people. We measure our success by the children we help feed, the lives we help change and the futures we give hope.

Part of HPSA's larger strategy to eliminating poverty is making short-term investments in order to diversify and increase fundraising. These financial activities yield a great impact in the long run.

HPSA has seen results in Zusiphe Poultry Project in Nkandla by implementing cost-effective measures to train, plan and evaluate our programs there. Children have food to eat and better health thanks to our programmes. Our ongoing efforts in Blouberg in Limpopo, increase families' income and crop yields by building off existing assets and investing in their resources.

We are committed to running an efficient, high-performance organization. We believe investments are necessary for meaningful long-term growth. The most important measure of a charity is impact, and ours can be seen in the lives of more than 8030 individuals we've helped lift out of hunger and poverty.
