Attracting Investment and Supporting Rural Enterprise
During apartheid, South Africa’s ‘Black’ rural areas were deliberately starved of investment and skills – resulting in low economic output and high unemployment. Twenty-five years later, the vast potential of rural land and labour remains untapped. InvestRural works with communities, government and the private sector to attract investment, build rural enterprise and create 1 million rural jobs.
Agriculture is the driving force of the rural economy. By developing subsistence and emerging farmers we can transform rural livelihoods.
