Support Gone Rural boMake
Since 2010, Gone Rural boMake has been a grateful beneficiary of the merchandise profit sales at the annual MTN Bushfire Festival of the Arts, Swaziland’s internationally acclaimed music & arts festival that celebrates creative expression.
Together with the Bushfire festival and brand, in 2016 we too celebrate 10 years.
#WeAre10 – is a time to look back at what we have achieved and how the MTN festival community has positively impacted on lives in Swaziland.
Achievements and Impact;
Since 2010, through its partnership with Bushfire, GRb has raised nearly SZL 300,000 to support its education programs and organisational development.
In 2010, GRb facilitated the building of its first community building. Today, 3 buildings provide a safe environment and hub for rural artisans and their communities, with 3 more being built in 2016.
· During 2012 and 2013, proceeds from the festival enabled 46 children to access basic education and complete their academic year.
· In 2014, 4000 clients received Sexual Reproductive health services from our sponsored mobile clinic.
· Since 2010, funds raised supported over 10,000 people to access clean water and sanitation facilities through 23 boreholes and some 900 sanitation facilities.
· 2900 women and youth were reached with business and social skills training that enabled 125 savings groups to raise over SZL 800,000 towards the development and growth of micro-enterprise initiatives.
This has all been achieved through the unwavering support of our donors and partners.
#WeAre10 is about celebrating the positive change the MTN Bushfire fans have made.
