This report, prepared for Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading Programme of the Governance and Interface Directorate of Cape Town, provided plans to guide the development and management of recreational facilities in Mitchells Plain. It encompassed background investigation, data collection, analysis, design and recommendations. Through interviews and data collection, we laid the groundwork for recreational expansion, focused on soccer, at Mitchells Plain secondary schools. The project's ultimate goal was to reduce crime while promoting teamwork, discipline and safe community interaction.
