Its aim is to promote the conservation of the indigenous fauna and flora of Zandvlei and to enhance the natural resource for the benefit of all.
Friends of Muizenberg Park:
Friends of Muizenberg Park is a community driven group that works to protect, enhance and develop the Park. We do this by encourage events and activities, to promote enjoyment and awareness of the park, create a sense of ownership, and to increase passive surveillance. We build relationships with the City to ensure that we create a shared vision for the park and to unlock possible available funding. The City has so many other priorities, e.g. providing parks where there have been none, that it is really up to the community to take ownership and direct its future. By building relationships with stakeholders, we have highlighted the problems and possible solutions and feel that we have mobilised energy and focus towards improving the situation.
Jungle Theatre Company:
Our mission is to create original theatre inspiring, empowering and connecting young people’s hearts to care for nature, community and culture. We are an established NPO with more than 20 years’ experience. Our artistic team is skilled in creating, performing and facilitating theatre for children and families. Drawing on our diverse cultural heritage we find connections to our environment and human nature making theatre that brings together music, dance, masks, puppets, clowning and multi lingual storytelling.
Muizenberg Community and Safety Initiative:
A neighbourhood watch , also called a crime watch or neighbourhood crime watch, is an organized group of civilians devoted to crime and vandalism prevention within a neighbourhood. In other words, neighbourhood watch is a crime prevention scheme under which civilians agree together to keep an eye on one another’s properties, patrol the street, and report suspicious incidents to law enforcement. The aim of neighbourhood watch includes educating residents of a community on security and safety and achieving safe and secure neighbourhoods. However, when a criminal activity is suspected, members are encouraged to report to authorities, and not to intervene.
