F.E.E.D. is committed to combating malnutrition and poverty, sharing knowledge and skills, and protecting natural resources and the environment. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the economic recession in South Africa and taken away people’s jobs and livelihoods.

Others, particularly in the townships and rural areas, are lacking food, access to education, and opportunities to provide for themselves and their families, or to find employment and become active, self-determining members of the economic life of their country.

F.E.E.D. stands for



i.e. not just sustenance, but healthy, balanced, locally produced foodstuffs, which are vital for children’s healthy development, and which strengthen the immune systems of both children and adults so that they can better resist illness and disease.



this refers to training – the teaching of theory and practical skills around a healthy, balanced diet; the ecologically sustainable cultivation of vegetables and medicinal herbs, as well as protection of the environment and the introduction of renewable energy.



at F.E.E.D. stands for the production of solar power in combination with agricultural production. People in the region grow their own vegetables and medicinal herbs under the solar modules. They use the harvested products to feed themselves and their families, and sell the surplus produce to the local supermarket. In certified courses, people are trained to work as solar systems installers, and can then use this qualification to apply for jobs in this future-oriented industry.



i.e. development is the sustainable goal that F.E.E.D. is pursuing for the long-term benefit of the local people. With its activities, the association is supporting the United Nations goals for sustainability.

With your donation, you will enable us to extend our projects, to expand to more regions. We will be in a position to support more people, assisting them to become self-reliant, allowing them the opportunity to better work and life prospects.

Individually tailoring your donation

F.E.E.D needs your donation to carry out and extend the sustainable projects. Funded by donations currently being rolled out in South Africa, in this, you can decide whether your donation should be used for a themed project, e.g. schools projects or agricultural and business training, or whether you would like to make a donation for all F.E.E.D.’s activities in a certain region or for a particular target group.

Your own personal and experienced contact partner is waiting to discuss: How you would like to individually tailor your donation? Get in touch with us!

Your benefits as a donor company

F.E.E.D. was established in 2020 as a German non-profit association, but, as a result of the social responsibility initiatives of Peter Schrum, an entrepreneur from Northern Germany, it has access to existing privately funded infrastructures and a well-developed long-standing network. The development projects already supported by F.E.E.D. attest to their long-term success for the social and economic development of the inhabitants and their region.

With your donation, you can therefore give targeted and appropriate sustainable support to people in need, in line with your CSR guidelines, and demonstrate your engagement and public relations activities authentically in a way that will enhance your corporate image. The F.E.E.D. team will be happy to support you with their expertise and many years experience in project and event management, marketing, online marketing and pr, as well as in the transparent evaluation and allocation of your available funds, in accordance with your guidelines.
