Local Governance

Local Governance

Local communities need to be empowered to solve their own problems. Various groups, including traditional councils and business organisations, will be introduced to good business practices, tender processes and financial governance.

There are a number of structures involved in local governance. BEDU works in partnership with the office of the kgosi (the king) and the traditional council. 

So far BEDU has:

  • Implemented capacity-building and training workshops to assist school governing bodies in running their schools.
  • Held various workshops with traditional council leadership to aid them and BEDU in understanding their role as leaders and governors in the community.

By 2028 BEDU hopes to:

  • Establish good business practice in our community (in schools, traditional council leadership, etc) to bring about change and a better life for members of the Ledig community.
