We’re very excited to welcome Felix and Mara who are the new volunteers for this programme for the year. Now that this programme is running well we are looking to roll it out to other schools in the area.
On 1 August we opened our new preschool building in Folokwe Village to many smiles and much fanfare – with helicopters included!
The Start of the Bulungula Incubator
Our work in the area began with the establishment of the Bulungula Lodge in 2004 (www.bulungula.com) on the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape in South Africa. The Lodge is community owned, Fair Trade accredited, and uses renewable energy, composting toilets and harvests sustainable rain and ground water sources. In 2007, an appeal to previous guests of the Lodge seed funded our NGO, the Bulungula Incubator, which we established in 2007 to address the challenges of rural poverty in our community while promoting and preserving the positive effects of the traditional African lifestyle and culture.
