Walk the Talk was founded in April during the Covid 19 pandemic. The foundation of WTT was already born in the mind of our founder, Jacoba Hamman 3 years ago. Due to circumstances, she could not fulfill her dream of starting a Non profit organization and put it aside. When covid -19 hit South Africa, we knew we had to act we saw the mass hunger situation we are sitting with. With only a group of four ladies, 2 pots and a two plate gas stove , WTT, was born. WTT are currently situated in Bishop Lavis, Cape town. ( South Africa )Our vision and mission is to fight against against poverty, by way of sharing meals with our community, upskilling our women and youth, and creating sustainable solutions to curb hunger. We the people take care of our people consistently and without fail. Our people depend on us to find a way and deliver consistently. We shall never tire because we are amongst our people. We share the same heart beat, issues and needs. Some view us as poor, helpless and voiceless but little do they know the intangible wealth we have amongst us, the immense self sacrifices we make through our inner strength and compassion, the strong voice we have through our actions. We are rich in our diversity and strength. Although we thank our government and acknowledge their assistance towards grant payouts, those grants are just not enough to sustain our people for a whole month. Our people's food insecurity is deepening. We are one community bounded by humanity. And if we all remember that we are all human regardless of our beliefs or social status we all have the very same needs of which food, water and shelter is the most important. Food is more than just something to eat, it is our culture and binds us as families and communities. As a community based organization this is a huge task and thus far we have been blessed with donations from our residents, friends and families, thus we would like to thank each and everyone for believing in us ! Our people know they can depend on us for a decent meal because we only serve quality food we will serve to our families. We thank each and everyone for their assistance and donations, especially committee volunteers and feeding scheme teams. We feel and appreciate the love and commitment to our cause and community.
