Handouts and charity are NOT the solution for poverty and other problems in Africa - that's been proven over and over.
What Africa really needs is education and enterprise that transforms communities so that they believe in themselves and thrive through trade; not merely survive from aid. This project is all about teaching smart, 'green' sustainable wealth creation and profitable business.
Africa's wealth is already here, and we need to unlock it by bringing new thought leadership and truly sustainable enterprise to the people of Africa.
All over Africa, people with little skill and few qualifications flock to cities in search of employment and income. The effects of this are devastating, driving up crime, pollution, overpopulation and disease in enormous urban survival camps and more importantly, abandoning rural areas leaving pristine country side in the hands of the sick and aged...
The Karatara Project was established to address all of this and unleash Africa's rural wealth. Firstly, our objective is to be self-sustaining. We aim to do this by investing in viable profitable projects that fund our model.
Secondly, we link these businesses to our curriculum which is all about creating profit from 'green' community enterprise in rural Africa.
Thirdly, we teach our students and the communities to be entrepreneurial and stand up for them selves from day one. The core focus then s on broadening consciousness and holistic education linked with entrepreneur al and enterprise development.
