The Local Community & Nourish

Nourish is a South African non-profit organisation dedicated to uplifting local communities, promoting social responsibility and encouraging environmental education. Nourish strives to improve the lives of people and the environment. We believe that the environmental integrity of a community is inextricably linked to the strength of its people, body and soul. Our objective is to find an integrative approach to community empowerment that:

  • educates communities on nutrition, sustainability and the vital role of the environment in their lives
  • builds capacity in environmental entrepreneurship thereby improving livelihood options and access to good nutrition
  • provides assistance in creating platforms through which the public and businesses can actualise transparent and sustainable community up-liftment
  • promotes social responsibility amongst the general public

Our purpose flows from our passion for Africa as our home, from our belief that improving our local communities is an investment in our collective future. In all aspects of this work, we strive to create an environment of encouragement, empowerment, compassion, and mutual respect.

Nourish was founded in 2010 by Sarah Bergs, who grew up locally in the world renowned game , the Timbavati. Her heart and soul filled with African sunsets, open landscapes, welcoming warm smiles and children playing in the dirt. Initially only a dream, Nourish has since, with hard work, passion, love, tears and dedication, become a reality. Through

Nourish, Sarah is now able to bring change and upliftment to people and communities. She says,“ Nourish has truly given me the chance to educate, to change the way communities see the environment and to touch lives. What could be more rewarding?”Nourish takes their inspiration from Mother Theresa, who said, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.

Travel Trees is one of Nourish’s projects which focuses on offsetting the carbon footprint of tours and travels through our beautiful country by sponsoring a tree. This tree, a naturalised fruit tree is planted on your behalf in the rural villages and communities that Nourish works with. These trees are planted at the homes of orphans and vulnerable children, or at schools, to not only give back to the environment, but also to create a sustainable food source.
