In 1998, the TSHIVHULA community embarked on a journey towards restitution of lost land - a process that has begun to yield results. To date, land in excess of 20,000 hectares has been restored to the people of Tshivhula, and is owned through a Communal Property Association. With the support of our partners, the transformation journey our people have embarked on will impact the socio-economic standing of the Tshivhula community and protect the natural resources.
A new bioprospecting industry in the northern province of Limpopo is emerging. Actors have focused on systematic modification of traditional uses of commonly available natural resources (such as Bulbine, Aloe Vera, the Marula fruit, bee products, and Mopani worms), for commercial or industrial value. Tshivhula will establish a bio-industrial facility located near the proposed Cultural Village to produce, trade and export indigenous products, such as medicines, industrial enzymes, food flavours, fragrances, cosmetics, colours, extracts and essential oils.
