About Isiphala

Isiphala-logo---lineIsiphala is the Ndebele word for a communal grain store. It is constructed in a variety of ways - often resembling a small raised dwelling.


We use the Isiphala as a metaphor for our work because it represents self-reliance and investment in future well-being.


Our symbol is iconic rather than literal: the CAF colours outline the vital opening in the Isiphala through which the farmers 'invest' grain into the store, and through which they 'draw' their investment as needed.
