 Guide for Communities_English
Vumelana produced a series of guides that demonstrates how properly facilitated and carefully structured commercial partnerships can promote job creation and rural development in communities living on restored and communal land. This guide explains how commercial partnerships work. It tells the story of a community frustrated because they don’t have the money and skills to run a business on the land that belongs to them. It also shows the nature of benefits that can accrue to the community as it enters into a commercial partnership with private investors to work its land.
