Innovations Programme - Eastern Cape, South Africa Interim Report 20.12.2007

On the way back I spoke to Sinegugu (an educator born in the area but working in Johannesburg and a Director of SWC) who is currently on the Wild Coast and has just finished in a community meeting at the Great Place (the Chief's headquarters) to introduce the Programme to the Tribal Structure and the greater community. It was received with great excitement - "This is exactly what we have been waiting for, someone to come to us and ask us what we want and not to tell us what is good for us."
