Joe Slovo, situated in the vicinity of Port Elizabeth, is an informal settlement that provides shelter to more than 350 families. Here in the heart of this vibrant community, the Narrative 4 community center initially emerged as a simple initiative aimed at promoting cleanliness and recycling. The center has now evolved to play a multitude of roles, serving as a day care facility, a classroom for after-school lessons, a community kitchen, a library, a computer lab, a sports facility, an adult skill development center, and much more!
“My mission for the future is to see other hubs like this one in other communities in and around South Africa and eventually throughout the globe.“
– Zukiswa Allah, Program Manager N4 South Africa
