The Community Organization Resource Center was established in 2002 to support the development of the urban slums in South Africa. It works with movements of people living in slums to enable homeless and landless communities to learn from one another and work together to engage government on the improvement of their living conditions. Past support enabled the grantee to work with community groups to collect data, build strong savings schemes, and lead community-planning processes to leverage support and funding from local, provincial, and national government. This grant will enable the Community Organization Resource Center to continue supporting the Federation of the Urban Poor and the Informal Settlement Network, improve living conditions for the urban poor, and connect them to movements of slum dwellers globally. The grantee will continue to support learning exchanges and work with young people to bridge the inter-generational gap.
