The Lukhanyo Hub project seeks to develop a system of support to residents in marginalised areas of urban South Africa through programmatic and built infrastructure. The newly formed entity RCDC are currently working in the BT section of Khayaltsha by assisting local groups through a small scale farming and early childhood development programmes:
“Lukhanyo Hub in Site C, Khayelitsha is a new ‘catalytic’ model developed by RCDC to deliver
affordable housing, high quality education, training, recreation programmes and health services
alongside employment opportunities delivered through innovative buildings, energy systems and outdoor spaces in economically under-resourced areas. The system is supported through public private partnership creating an economically sustainable system through public-private partnerships.”
The overall system is being developed to be replicable in multiple contexts whilst being responsive.
