Trust for Okavango Cultural and Development Initiatives TOCaDI
The Trust for Okavango Cultural and Development Initiatives (TOCaDI) – serves over 21000 people in the Okavango sub-district in Botswana. The focus is on the Okavango sub-district, with particular attention to 21 villages and settlements, 9 on the eastern side and 13 on the western side of the Okavango panhandle.
Title to land by San and other marginalised communities, remain at the forefront of our community development activities, while income generation and other livelihood activities are the main reasons behind land applications. These include the drilling and equipping of boreholes for cattle syndicates, the harvesting of thatching grass, vegetable gardens, fisheries and eco-tourism projects. Interventions on health have yielded exciting lessons regarding mobilisation of HIV/AIDS and TB among communities and the administration of therapy to patients through DOTS and community mobilisers.
