Mmapula Community Development is a company specialising in innovative yet simple paradigms in order to address socio-economic development issues, both in rural and urban areas. Mark Twain said; “Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.” This is unfortunately also true for developmental efforts. It is the passion of this company to turn potential into action rather than to just talk about it.

The members of the company have extensive experience in planning, implementing and monitoring community based processes in different communities including rural communities, informal settlements and townships.
