The L.A.N.D. - Leadership Academy for a New Direction is the vision of Koos and Jeni Basson. Rapidly, the L.A.N.D. became a reality when their hearts were broken witnessing the hopelessness of so many young individuals wandering the streets without direction. Like sheep without a shepherd to lead. Koos said, "the L.A.N.D. was established to lift up leaders to release their God given potential to Raise a Nation!"
