Encouraging Maths and Science - Deep Rural Kwazulu Natal - Rural Development

GeoSolEarth brings hope to deep rural areas. Encouraging Maths and Science as well as interacting with learners, teachers and the community, we provide valuable online technological resources that promote entrepreneur development.



A large number of schools are very deep rural and lacking basic facilities such as libraries, halls, sports fields, assembly areas etc.

Rural Development - Kwazulu Natal - South Africa

Rural Areas of Kwazulu Natal - Many areas experience difficulties such as no water, lack of sanitation, no quality education, no libraries and gravel roads... Many teachers, nurses and hard working individuals strive everyday to make the places better, the children smarter and life easier...

Rural Access Roads - Deep Rural South Africa - Makekeni and Ezimbokodweni

Access roads provide opportunities for sustainable development to deep rural communities. These vital roads allow movement of both people and goods. The Okhahlamba Municipality has undertaken the initiative to provide access roads to the rural communities of Makekeni and Ezimbokodweni.


The Drakensberg Mountains world heritage site is home to thousands of  local and international tourists.


Madudla Contractors together with Maxode Projects and Geotechnical Solutions have lent valuable expertise and experience.



Job Creation, Skills Development and Women Empowerment in rural areas build confidence and improve the local communities.

Rural Skills Development and Job Creation - South Africa

GeoSolEarth is proud to be a part of rural skills development and job creation. Most of the areas we service are poor with high unemployment rates. The roads we travel on are gravel dirt roads and the areas lack electricity, sanitation and clean drinking water.

We are however very fortunate to still see smiles on the faces of local kids and people... Our Geotechnical Solutions staff are always blown away by the warm welcomes and happy faces.

The little ones at Mzomusha Primary hardly left us alone...


There is also a lack of classrooms and no maths or science teachers...

Tugela Ferry - Msinga - Muden Adventure - Rural Skills Development - Job Creation

The Kwazulu-Natal Department of Public Works has undertaken a school sanitation project to construct new toilet blocks for male and female, grade R learners and teachers in the Umzinyathi District Municipality located within the Kwazulu-Natal province.

Various schools were identified within the Muden, Tugela Ferry and Msinga areas for geotechnical investigation studies. The Ramgoolam Group together with Naidu Consulting Engineers have requested Geotechnical Solutions (Pty) Ltd to carry out geotechnical investigation studies for selected schools.

Here is our Adventure...




Tugela Ferry is a town on the northern bank of the Tugela River, in central KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. During the apartheid era it formed part of the KwaZulu homeland, and at present it is included in the Umzinyathi District Municipality....

Schools included:

Emachunwini - Holwane - Mzomusha - Ntshishili - Sibumba - Nomaqulu - Bethulo - Pano - KusaKusa - Zizi - Osuthu - Mabedlana - Nomahaye - Makhankana  - Mfunzi - Zimiseleni - Mhlangezulu - Mhlumba - Kwavulamehlo - Gayisani - Phumela - Mpikayizekanye - Fabeni - Ngongolo - Mabizela - Nkamba - Mbondweni - Mfenebude - Umbonje - St Benards Julwayo - Mashunka - Ntokozweni - Themane - Nyoniyezwe - Kwazenzele - Emkhuphula - Mathinta - Mpompolwana - Bhekabantu




The Stories were endless and the little learners provided us with tons of comfort and warmth. Clean Drinking Water remains a problem as most schools and learners have none. The delivery of water is totally reliant on water trucks which seem to speed past the schools with little consideration for the children.





Emkhuphula Learners with the most stories... There are Zero to No Maths and Science Teachers.






The areas are deep rural and forgotten by the big city politicians....
The schools and areas are lacking electricity, water, roads and sanitation...
