Cultivating the potential of our people

Master plan

The main purpose of the Bakubung Economic Development Unit (BEDU) is to develop the Bakubung nation through sustainable community programmes and projects.

BEDU has adopted an holistic approach to economic upliftment and employment creation for the Bakubung people, who live in the North West province of South Africa. Education, sport, agriculture and infrastructure programmes are already running in the area.

BEDU’s objectives

  • To develop education and capacity-building systems that support sustainable community development.
  • To reinforce a sense of place and identity through establishing community sports and arts programmes.
  • To develop the local economy so it can attract and retain local business.
  • To empower local communities to solve their own problems through self-governance and skills development.
  • To provide water solutions to satisfy domestic, agricultural and economic needs.
  • To build the infrastructure necessary for all the above to function.
