What prompted the association to take up the work?
The park was used as a dumping spot, rendering it useless for residents. There was a garbage bin outside the park. The garbage was strewed around attracted cattle to the street. So, we took up the issue and worked along with the officials and local MLA. On Sunday, we conducted a transformation work, in which, around 40 residents, including children, took part and painted the walls. Karam Korpom - SAPS assisted us in the project.
Where did the funds come from?
All the money was collected from our residents, which was enough for our activity. More than the money, we are happy that residents and children actively participated in the drive.
Is it possible for residents to sort out civic issues themselves?
We are doing these kinds of activities to inform other resident associations that everything is possible. People do not know how to approach problems with the plan. Every problem can be solved with a good plan and assistance from authorities. We will continue to conduct these kinds of drives in our locality.
