Close to 5000 women have discovered their own ability and the miracle of self-sustainability within this space.

900 400 hours of skills transfer has produced the most unimaginable tools of self-management and self-deployment for women with little education, no money yet a burning desire to make a difference in communities.

In partnership with our generous sponsors, corporate and private, Basadi Pele imparts the gift of self-sustainability.

Self- sustainability obliterates poverty, low self-esteem, crime and indifference. It unleashes entrepreneurial skills, authentic potential and increases the awareness of “I am because we are”.

The gift of self-management and sustainability is the only lasting gift with the magnitude for empowered change.

Self-sustainability is the hallmark of a wise and responsible mature nation.

Our very existence depends on it.
