Since our entry in Munyama Village, there has been an outcry for development. Many people have no hope for their future and for the future of their children. In these communities, there are no facilities like electricity and clean drinking water. There are no business or employment opportunities. Because many people are not trained or qualified to do anything else apart from fishing and farming the cycle has not been broken so far. We are not coming in to give them hand-outs nor to give solutions, but to work with them and help them identify areas where they can develop themselves and their communities. This will include skills development in various areas and showing them to use or start with what they have.

We need people with community development skills and the ability to teach the locals.
