As far as a general definition of community is concerned, it is not necessarily based on geographical space. However, for the purposes of the work that B4H does, there is acknowledgement that in poorer communities in South Africa (with limited access to transport, cell phone airtime, and internet), one of the more important factors in defining a community is place. Among less mobile people and families, ones geographical position forces one to connect to and have relationships with their neighbours on a daily basis.
This provides a sense of community that is both stronger and more inclusive with regards to community-run projects because, by definition, it promotes within everyone (no matter their ethnicity, religious affiliation, party affiliation) the possibility of unity with one another.
