We are Durban was born out of the desire to make real change in Durban. The need appears so large and there appear to be so many organisations doing “good work” and some struggling due to lack of structure, poor management or volunteers. We wanted to get involved with what we had available – access to people who want to help. We do not wish to recreate someone else’s organisation but assist in all ways we can to make their vision happen and stimulate their success in Durban. After years of fine tuning the exact goal was established and We are Durban was formulated and began operating at the beginning of 2011.
From 2011 to 2016 our main aim was to build relationship with organisations and find out their real struggles and victories. This has informed our strategy for this next season.
