PALAPYE: Close to 400 professionals originating from Palapye have formed a foundation called Palapye First Development Foundation, whose main mandate is to help uplift the livelihood of the villagers.

The Foundation maintains that they are not out to duplicate the mandate of any existing structure, but are focusing on improving the economic position and general welfare of the people of the greater Palapye. It aims at achieving Palapye development goals in partnership with existing structures to strengthen their capacities through mutual understanding.

The professionals’ dream is to turn Palapye into what they call the Dubai model with a pool of expertise they have. The Foundation’s secretary general Mosotho Modirwa, a retired photo journalist said Palapye has a pool of expertise who have been sitting on their laurels and have never contributed a thing in their village’s development plans.
