Asemahle Mfenguza

Purpose is an essential element, knowing my purpose and my purpose being able to be on the ground and break the injustice of the apartheid spatial planning is what drives the work I do and wish to do more at DAG.

Asemahle is an intern at DAG under the Asivikelane campaign and the Social Technical Support project. Her role entails designing land use plans and programs that enable towns, cities, counties, and metropolitan areas create communities, accommodate population expansion, and rehabilitate physical facilities such as toilets and taps. She equates her time at DAG to gaining data verification and facilitation skills. Asemahle enjoys working at DAG because the organisation exposes her to the personal side of Urban Planning and this personal connection to the community is what drives her every day. Her work focuses on capacitating residents of informal settlements and she has interests in expanding and facilitating discussions to a higher quantity of people. Asemahle is currently pursuing a Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT.)
