About Us

mission

At Botlhale Village, ICT will be exploited in innovative ways to provide benefits in areas where they impact on the community and bring about a transformation in their daily lives. this is the essential tenet for change in our country and around the world.

The Village is also an incubator for economic entities where research students engage with virtual companies. successful projects may lead to the creation of new, small and medium enterprises that add value to the knowledge gained and systems developed. this type of development leads to growth in the local economy and contributes to the improvement of the region in the spirit of ubuntu.

To facilitate the meeting of minds and growth of knowledge, research students will organise conferences to promote their results and development projects using the building’s exhibition centre and auditorium. meetings like these bring together academics, representatives from business and industry, government leaders and potential beneficiaries.
