Theme: Investing in Rural Community Development Projects

  1. Education and Skills Development
  2. Rural Healthcare Development
  3. Rural Roads and Infrastructure Development
  4. Dynamics and Diversity: The Potential of rural areas.

The attractiveness of rural areas includes home-connectedness and independent living culture as well as access to work, education and utilities, and affordable housing. At the same time, communities in these structurally weaker regions are finding it increasingly difficult to develop. For the past years MillaSA has hosted the annual rural development conference to promote the sustainability of rural livelihoods. Against the background of demographic change, our rural areas need an affordable infrastructure and a comprehensive network of facilities and services of general interest.
