Building sustainable communities

The “Dream” is for an integrated community solution providing health, education, accommodation and food security, expanding on the need for interconnected pillars.

There’s enough evidence around our own business locations to show that where one or two of the iKhoVillage elements is missing, communities do not become sustainable and self-sufficient, for example mining towns in South Africa where

only affordable housing is available and communities have to travel far distances to access education and healthcare facilities.

The iKhoVillage is the solution.
