SC-13-mapWARDS IN THIS COUNCIL:

Ward 33, Ward 34, Ward 35, Ward 36

The City of Cape Town’s Subcouncil 13 serves the area of Cape Town that coincides with PEDI’s focus.

The Subcouncil comprises Philippi, Weltevreden Valley, Samora, Kosovo Informal Settlement, Vlei Informal Settlement, Siyanyanzela Informal Settlement, Villages 2 and 4, Brown’s Farm, Lower Crossroads, Luzuko, Klipfontein Mission Station, Thabo Mbeki Informal Settlement, Philippi Industrial, Philippi Island, Airport, Crossroads (south of N2 Freeway, east of New Eisleben Road and north of Lansdowne Road) and Nyanga.

According to conservative estimates, the Philippi area is home to about 350 000 people, most living in informal structures, backyards and Council housing. Many have migrated to Cape Town from elsewhere in search of better healthcare, schools and work opportunities. The area features three community libraries, 14 schools, four health clinics, a sports complex and public transport interchanges.

The Subcouncil partners PEDI in several aspects of its community building work.

Subcouncil 13 has assisted in upgrading play parks, helped capacitate young people by offering youth empowerment and leadership skills programmes, started health programmes for informal meat traders and funded equipment such as mattresses, toys and books for many early childhood community centres.

The subcouncil’s jobseekers’ database is also used extensively by unemployed people and City line departments for temporary projects such as street and area cleaning. Other initiatives include partnering with the City’s Fire and Rescue Department to train community members in fire prevention.
