WHO WE ARE

Renshia Manuel

Growbox CEO

 

 

Being unemployed and having to feed 4 children had forced me to grow vegetables in my own backyard in order to feed my family. This sparked to drive to teach households how to grow their own food at their own homes.

The knowledge that many households had no access to land in order to grow their own food had prompted me to develop GrowBox. Now we are supporting households grow their own food sustainably for a brighter future.

Social entrepreneur bringing food gardening and nutrition to the households that needs it the most.

sOCIAL IMPACT

As a social enterprise our veggie boxes are sold to the public on a 2 for 1 model. Meaning that for every 2 boxes sold – 1 will be sponsored to a disadvantaged household. The veggie boxes are also distributed to beneficiaries through CSI funds.

This allows us to distribute larger quantities of veggie boxes within the communities where they are needed the most. The beneficiaries also receives Food Gardening Workshops. This would in turn help households to sustainably grow their own food all year round. 
Private or corporate sponsors can get involved.

 

364 boxes distributed and 430 households impacted since January 2017
