Umnotho Village  Model

Our Search For Land and Better Housing

Umnotho Village Model

Our model is based on the community taking responsibility to purchase their own land and initiating their own housing project. Community members then become investors, developers and beneficiaries of their own project. Government is later invited to invest through basic infrastructure grant and housing subsidies.

Umnotho Village is a community driven project that aims to lower the cost of housing so that low-income families can achieve better housing. 

Ethembalethu Eco Village:  Home to 150 families

Ethembalethu Eco Village is a beautiful home to 150 families. Ethembalethu (Our Place of Hope), is the first community driven housing project in Muldersdrift and a shinning example on how ordinary people can come together to achieve affordable housing.
The community raised its own funds to secure land and to conduct environmental studies for town planning processes. It was not easy, but after overcoming so many obstacles, the community finally partnered with the government to build the 150 houses.
Today Ethembalethu is a beautiful village with beautiful houses. Walking down the streets of Ethembalethu, it is easy to see how the community is proud and how it continues to maintain the village.
