South Africa is a country amongst the highest inequality in the world. Due a history of segregation and division within its society, it experiences large pitfalls in development with a large rift between the haves and the have-nots. The outcome is social incohesion, evident most notable by high unemployment, poverty and crime.
Our agricultural community of Kambula (Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa) is embarking on a ground-breaking project to redress these imbalances of the past. We seek to build an Agricultural Community-Estate centrally located in commercial farming node where we concentrate scattered rural dwellers living (many of them living on the margin) and catalyse our development and emancipation through making economic opportunities and public goods feasible. Applying a high ethic of sustainability to agriculture and the community, we seek to create employment opportunities in the agriculture sector through initiating agricultural acitivities; build schools, clinics, creches and a college of agriculture; and integrate a village of high concious citizens.
