Strengthening Community Organising and Activism
DAG supports active community engagement that facilitates the self-empowerment of citizens. We have a history and culture of supporting communities to bring about the change they want to see.
DAG strives to strengthen the leadership skills of the civil society and support
communities in need of adequate housing to lead, and engage with, their own development planning through socio-technical support, active citizen training and contractor support.
Through these, and related support mechanisms, over
- 100 000 households were assisted with securing community services.
- strengthened the capacity of more than 2,500 civic leaders, with a focus on women and youth over the years.
