Agency in informal settlements

Despite being subject to poverty, inequality, unemployment and sub-standard services, some informal settlement residents have not lost their dream of a better life nor has their agency and innovation become deactivated. They are forging forward to make life better for themselves. What varies is the scale of their interventions.

On the 20th of September 2018, Isandla Institute hosted the second and final Local Community of Practice of the year. Local community of practice meetings provide opportunities for NGOs in Cape Town, working in and on informal settlement upgrading, to reflect on the work they are doing, share their practices with other organisations, and learn from each other to strengthen and improve their organisational practices.
