Can TAISBA's Mathangwane Campus be developed as the heart of an Eco-Village?

What is an Eco-Village? (http://thu.to/Eco_village)
Development of a possible Community Health Program was jumpstarted with the advice from All Saints in Beverly Hills & the USC's Director of Global Health.

Late 2008 Dr. Claudia Emami took over and identified a team at UCLA Public Global Health Program. Throughout 2009 - 2010 the team worked on the planning of Health Clinics as part of Educational campuses in the U.S. September 2010, Dr. Emami traveled to Botswana to conduct a needs assessment in Mathangwane and handed over R&D to the Motswana Team for further development.
USC Professor Dasu and 2 USC MBA Students

The USC team was introduced to ARUP's development template and given the following Project Description: Taking into consideration the challenges and opportunities of the village, identify a possible sustainable solution (business) for the village of Mathangwane, Botswana, Africa.

Unfortunately the USC team did not travel to Botswana, but initial work was completed Spring 2013 and delivered to the Anglican Diocese for further development.
