INTERESTING READING



In 2011 the CAMP PROJECT (Community Asset Mapping Programme for Sustainable Rural Development) was launched by the Greater Rustenburg Community Foundation (GRCF) in collaboration with UNISA.

Professor Melanie NICOLAU, from UNISA, has done intensive research on this development project and in the process obtained her PhD!

Recently (2015) Prof. NICOLAU and Christine DELPORT, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GRCF, wrote and published an article in the International Journal of Social Sustainability in Economic, Social, and Cultural Context – reviewed and validated by an International Peer review panel.

This is a 'must read' - CAMP can assist rural communities in driving their own agenda of transformation!

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY!


"HOW CAN I SUPPORT 'MY LOCAL COMMUNITY'?"


Through a PPP(Process of Positive Participation)

Local economic development is NOT just a 'government thing' - we all need to take hands and become united in our efforts to implement and drive sustainable local economic development.

Lets create an investment climate within our communities through positive participation! Lets initiate and implement business projects, no matter how insignificant, that would lead to job creation (employment opportunities). Lets therefore stimulate our local economy and ultimately stimulate Africa's economy - this will lead to prosperity.

The Foundation for the Development of Africa mandated the I SUPPORT AFRICA PROJECT to provide a 'platform' that will allow the you and I of every community, to participate in a sustainable development process within their community.
This resulted in the
HOW CAN I SUPPORT COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT?
project.

This project aims to promote and preserve positive participation and co-operation within your community while identifying and showcasing products and services serving the community and beyond. Furthermore the project will recognize deserving entrepreneurs instrumental in producing unique and/or capacitating products and/or services. These entrepreneurs will participate in a contest resulting in the ultimate winner receiving life changing opportunities.


How then can I participate in the well-being of my community and ultimately Africa?


First......
A commitment is required to abide to sound business principles - most importantly

"Good Governance"


Add your name to the growing list of names - all proclaiming:
"YES .... I SUPPORT 'AFRICA' AND MY 'COMMUNITY' !"


Secondly......
Trade within your community!


Thirdly......
What product or service do you have that is or could be serving the community?


The objective here is to determine what products and/or services are available in any given local community and ultimately throughout Africa. From a local perspective, knowing what products and services are available, in any given community across the continent, will enhance and encourage local support for these listed products and services. Knowing what is available will also highlight products and services NOT available - revealing opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs.


First ......
SEE LIST OF NAMES - ADD YOUR NAME


Secondly ......
TRADE WITH OR WITHIN YOUR COMMUNITY


Thirdly ......
ADD YOUR PRODUCTS / SERVICES SERVING AFRICA

"Participation Builds Unity"

"MADE IN AFRICA - FOR AFRICA"

THE FOUNDATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA
is a private, 'not-for-profit', non-membership, organisation actively serving Africa by promoting processes conducive to sustainable development ......throughout Africa - with the emphasis on sustainability!
This organisation is currently rated as one of the most proactive Sustainable Business Development Organisations in Africa!
Serving Africa since 1999.

We are actively involved with promoting the
AFRICAN RENEWAL PROGRAMME

However -
We firmly believe that sustainable development is a process that must start from within - Africa needs to "partner" with herself first!
We also prefer the phrase: "Lets create wealth" rather than "Lets alleviate poverty"
Our initiatives include enabler 'showcasing'; networking opportunities; business opportunities; investment opportunities; promotion of special projects; dissemination of business information; joint venture initiatives and a range of value added services - all to serve

AFRICA!

We facilitate processes, including networking sessions that would lead to sustainable development, hence our motto:
"Nothing is as ‘powerful’ as the Human Network"

"Sustainable Development is the action and/or act of bringing people and/or processes into position for the effective use in the support and/or delivery of efforts, conducts and the cause!"

All our efforts are privately funded!
