Factors outside of the Partnership:

  • Other Informal Settlements– they are both a source of knowledge from which Langrug can learn and also a distraction. The DIHS and CORC are responsible for many other communities besides Langrug, and therefore cannot focus all of their time and resources on Langrug alone
  • Media and Politics– in this well-connected world, information and ideas, particularly those of political nature, have the ability to incite or stifle progress. We saw first hand how politics directly impacts life in Langrug here.
  • Vineyards– are one of the main employers for the people of Langrug. There are tensions between vineyard owners concerning farm workers’ wages and informal land tenure.
