Designing the Guabuliga Market

A group of six students of [a]FA led by Professor Baerbel Mueller have been in Guabuliga the past days to conduct research, plan and design a market for the community in collaboration with Braveaurora and the traditional leadership.

Guabuliga in the past had a thriving market which brought together assorted goods and services from far and near. The market has for some years now been moribund and it is with a renewed spirit that all stakeholders work to revamp it. A site has been proposed to the community and an outline will be outdoored soon.

It's the hope of everyone involved to restore the market to it's former glory. The vision is to make it a hub for organically grown produce and it is also envisaged to serve as a one-stop-shop for all household needs-- catalysing growth and development in the area.
