Departmental Strategy for Habitat for Humanity SA
Habitat for Humanity SA has traditionally been known for mobilising corporate volunteers for 'build days' in township environments. We supported the Advocacy and Programme Departments to develop programmes of action in line with a strategic reorientation of the organisation to be more active in participatory informal settlement upgrading. Some of the outcomes of the strategy were a series of 'Practitioners Platforms' which we designed as a sector capacity building initiative backed up with position statements.
