I feel that DAG is an important role-player in the realisation of citizens’ constitutional rights to access land and housing opportunities.
Ryan is a Project Coordinator at the DAG, focusing mainly on projects in Woodstock, Salt River and Mitchells Plain. His work involves leading projects for international donors with the objective of addressing spatial inequalities by helping marginalised communities access land and affordable housing opportunities. Working with grassroots organisations, the government, and the private sector, he believes in a collaborative approach to neighborhood development that places people at the center of their own development. Ryan holds a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning from the University of Cape Town, where he is also a guest lecturer and external examiner. He is a 2019 fellow of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders.
