“Cities (countries) have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” – Jane Jacobs (paraphrased)

Our participation in a democratic society should extend beyond casting a vote on election days. We all have an active and critical part to play in making South Africa a better place for all.

At Ranyaka, we believe in the power of “ordinary” people to accomplish extraordinary things. We believe in active citizenry and collaboration. These principles are key to our Collaborative Community Development framework. In every community where we work, we work with communities and local change agents.

We cannot do this without you! The heroes are already there. You are the heroes.

Happy Freedom Day!
