Abstract

In Africa rural dwellers make up the majority who, while scratching a living, still aspire to be urbanized -hence the continuing migration to cities, despite evidence that industry and manufacture no longer offer employment. Education and ODL are obvious solutions to brining a transformation into those areas, but according to leading development agencies the foremost constraints are [a] the lack of appropriate institutions to facilitate the process and [b] the character, ethics and effectiveness of leadership. // The following is an account of how a South African remote rural village of Kgautswane has met the PCF7 challenges of development and empowerment by transforming their community through the formation of a community-owned and managed Cooperative Institution that employed the following ODL imperatives. // Paper ID: 235
