There are 820 families living in the Siyanda informal settlement. They are more likely to get legal status and acknowledgement if the settlement remains at this level of population as they government can then budget for it. A red number on a person’s door means they have been officially recognised by the local authorities.
We [Church Land Programme, WDR partner], work with Abahlali baseMjondolo, the local social movement association in the settlement.
