About

Wandile founded the Half-House Project to provide sustainable improvements in the living and community conditions of shantytown residents in Durban. Using local materials and labor as well as community sweat equity, Wandile and his team will build half-houses that leave room for further creative construction. The half-house will create a sense of community pride and ownership, while teaching the community about the importance and power of environmental sustainability.
