Umnotho Village is a non-profit approach to housing. "As a community we came together to buy our own land for housing".
The project was started by low-income families from the informal settlements of Muldersdrift, Gauteng. Life in the informal settlements is difficult with terrible living conditions. Daily people have to live with piles of uncollected waste, with lack of decent sanitation and no water.
Umnotho Village is a lovely development with 2000 mixed-income housing, located in Muldersdrift with easy access to Lanseria Airport, Cosmo City, North Gate, Fourways, Cradlestone Mall, Ruimsig, and most of Johannesburg and Mogale City.

Our Pilot Project (Test Village):
Umnotho is currently developing a pilot project for almost 50 families to start building their own houses. Umnotho is currently installing water and sewer infrastructure.
Learning from the pilot, Umnotho will roll out bigger projects to allow more families to build for themselves.
