Magaliesburg, near Mogale City, has been identified as Gauteng's prime area for rural tourism and agricultural development. Since 2013 various development projects have taken place to promote businesses in these sectors but there is still a huge demand for sustainable jobs and business opportunities for our people. The original Magalies Development Initiative (MDI) is therefore being re-conceptualised as a people-focussed initiative that is multi-pronged and locally run. Our work is based on ongoing community consultation on economic needs and constructive solutions for challenges experienced in previous projects. Local schools, churches, the Magaliesburg Business Forum, the CPF, local government bodies and community heroes provide us with a broad base of support and inputs. The community development initiative's primary aim is to help our people to help themselves but we also welcome random acts of kindness that benefit the needy in our rural and peri-urban area. With donor funding and support from other organisations we intend to create an environment of hope, action and dignity through decent job opportunities for our indigent rural folk.
