LIVELIHOODS

SDP is working to create livelihoods in the cash economy as part of our efforts to achieve sustainable development.

  • Our Daru fish hatchery is being rebuilt to restock the river system and support a commercial aquaculture industry.
  • It is being integrated into a nucleus estate agribusiness being developed around Oriomo to grow vanilla and black pepper and other crops. This venture will employ 250 staff and support 500 smallholder families.
  • SDP funded the establishment of extensive smallholder rubber plantings around Lake Murray. We now want to support these smallholders with a professionally managed extension and logistics service.
  • We expect the Balimo campus will train people from Western Province for employment in the Province.
