ACTIVATING WHAT ALREADY EXISTS

The housing crisis in Cape Town cannot be solved by any one entity in isolation. No local government, NGO, community or political party can fix this very real problem on their own. Often the people who face the effects of the problem most acutely, and hold many of the solutions, are left out of the solution process. UBU believes that in the post-subsidy South Africa, transformation in the informal realm will occur because the people do it for themselves. We believe that the BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE will build beautiful things:
