In 2007, the rehabilitation of the Noofisi Primary School in Nqileni Village was the project that prompted the launch of the Bulungula Incubator. Although education has always been a central focus of our work, we realised very early that we needed to consider a holistic approach to our rural development strategies: instead of focusing on one intervention spread over a large region, we chose to have a broad range of projects in one limited area to ensure that our interventions focused on depth instead of breadth. 



Within our Education programme, there are 8 main focus areas:

  • Early Childhood Development in the Home (ECD @ Home): 0-3 years
  • Centre-based ECD 3-6 years
  • Support of rural government schools (including Technology for Education Delivery from Grade 1)
  • Primary School After School Programme
  • Provision of library facilities
  • Vulindlela Scholarship Programme
  • Parent activism and participation in education
  • Education advocacy, informing government policy
