Abstract

This project promoted health, education, and wellbeing in the informal settlement of Langrug by expanding services and enhancing the social space of a Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Upgrading Programme (WaSH-UP) facility. Work with community and local NGOs resulted in a successful aftercare programme and library that provides a safe, educational place for children to play and learn. We also explored the complexities of working relationships in informal settlement communities and documented these experiences and contemplations on our extensive project website.
