Upgrading informal settlements in South Africa is a vital yet challenging process requiring persistent multi-stakeholder involvement. The goal of this project was to strengthen the partnership between the informal community of Langrug, Stellenbosch Municipality, the Community Organisation Resource Centre, through innovative, community-driven projects. Through collaboration, we assisted with initial reblocking efforts, finalised designs and plans for the implementation of a community centre, improved current greywater management processes, and began construction of an innovative, Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene facility. These projects strengthened community capacity and exemplified the benefits that meaningful partnerships can bring to South Africa's poorest communities.
