City of Cape Town Informal Settlement Department
The goal of our project was to assist in the informal settlement upgrading process in Flamingo Crescent, in any way possible, by supporting the existing stakeholders. To realize this goal, we developed a working relationship with our partners to show that we could collaborate and learn together. Through this collaboration, our partnership established a sustainable playground and garden initiative, created a new and improved shack layout, and set in motion the development of a crèche in Flamingo. We also prepared a resource binder for the community and a record of the project for future reblocking. Seeing the efforts made by the community and our other partners, it is clear that the upgrading of Flamingo Crescent will continue in our absence.
