We have based the concept on CIDA City Campus in Johannesburg, but have modified this model for a rural setting in order to create a sustainable platform for transformation. The students are Community Leaders, selected by their communities along the garden route to represent them in the project. Admission requirements centred mainly on the students’ aptitude, leadership abilities and commitment to taking what they learn back to their communities. We will provide learnerships into rural enterprise supported by advanced technologies, methodologies and alternative energy sources. A Business Degree will be available to those leaders with aspirations in the formal sector, academia or the will to excel academically prior to involving themselves in rural enterprise.
