The successes of our excellent Health Programme Team was featured in the news, highlighting the important role of Homebased Care and Community Health Workers, particularly in remote and rural communities.
The Bulungula Incubator is constantly engaged in the improvement of our management skills and the development of a deep base of quality leadership for the long term sustainability of the organisation and good succession planning.
Over the April long weekend the Bulungula Incubator partnered with VMS to provide dental services to people with disabilities and barriers to access to dental care.
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.
