A key focus of Bulungula Incubator is to broaden the impact of our work through inviting other communities to learn from our programmes and enabling our project managers to visit and share their skills with other organisations.
Farmers in regions with hilly typography have few accessible options other than the back-breaking option of carrying water on their heads. See our informational video on a groundbreaking solution to the problem: a perfect, cheap water pump that works and is easy to find.
A love of reading and learning is actively and energetically fostered across our education programme area: from the very first days in early childhood development through our Bulungula College and Youth projects.
We were thrilled to welcome back Sarah, our friend and mural artist from London, who worked like crazy in the five short weeks she was here. As always Sarah brightened our lives with her fun and colourful murals.
In 2017 the Bulungula Incubator participated in a launch of the ELOM (Early Learning Outcomes Measures (ELOM) produced by Innovation Edge.
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.
