Bergnek, South Africa

Launched: Nov 29 2018 (about 1 year ago).

Members: Keabetswe Keith Mosumane

Bergnek is a small rural community in Limpopo, South Africa. It was established as part of the Land Rights Act of 1998 shortly after independence when labourers where moved off the farms, where they had previously lived and worked. This was done in an effort to try and get farm labourers a proper wage that was not offset by other benefits such as housing, schooling and food. With little support to help overcome the challenges faced, it's hard to determine if this has in fact benefited the majority of workers.
