I met a guy called Magic the other day. A guy who can draw, a guy who expresses himself with creativity, and with longing. A 29 year old guy who lives in an informal settlement, who really, really wants to be an architect.

I live in a country where some are greatly privileged, and most are not. I count myself as part of the former. I have never had to hustle, never had to worry about my place in society. I am because of the others before me, who made it possible, at the expense of others.

My line of work exposes me to the raw reality of the many in this country. And I am humbled by what they do to make life bearable, livable, and enjoyable. But mostly I'm saddened by the unmet dreams and aspirations of young and old.

Imagine we all had the same starting position in life....the wonders we might just see.

If you take a gander at the latest Packa-Ching stats, you'll learn that the amount of recyclable material collected through the Packa-Ching project currently sits at a weight that equals 15 tyrannosauruses. And in exchange for all those dinosaurs, a total of R136 893 has been paid back to the community. These numbers include both participating communities: Langa and Joe Slovo.

Packa-Ching is a community initiative spearheaded by Polyco that incentivises everyday South Africans to recycle by encouraging a change in behaviour and a shift in the way people perceive recyclable packaging waste. By bringing in recyclable waste to be weighed, members receive money that is loaded onto a MasterCard (or as we like to call it, a Kilorands Card) and can be spent immediately after the transaction is complete. Following the launch of Packa-Ching in August 2017, the project now runs in two locations: Langa and Joe Slovo Park.

The idea behind Polyco's community project PACKA-CHING is to tap into a new market of recyclable packaging material in order to decrease the amount of packaging waste entering landfills. Through incentivising a change in behaviour and a shift in the perception of recyclable packaging, we will also be uplifting the communities in the areas in which we work.

Community members are able to bring bags of recyclable packaging material (plastic, paper, metal cans and glass) to PACKA-CHING, a mobile recycling service that will travel between communities and exchange it for money loaded onto a personal membership card.

Since this Monday passed, PACKA-CHING now operates in two areas: Langa, Western Cape, South Africa and Joe Slovo Park, Milnerton.

THE AIMS OF PACKA-CHING: ✚ Maximise the diversion of packaging waste from landfill.
✚ Incentive a change in recycling behaviour in informal and lower-income communities.
✚ Positively impact on the lives of the selected communities by supporting poverty alleviation in South Africa.
✚ Prove the success of this model in order to roll out to many communities over the next 5 years.

Two wonderful ladies who were at Packa-Ching's  Joe Slovo Park launch on Monday, and who are now proud owners of their own Kilorands cards! These Kilorands cards will have money loaded onto them in exchange for recyclable waste.

For those who haven't heard, this is the first new community that Packa-Ching has moved into following the pilot project's launch last year August in Langa, Western Cape, South Africa. If you've been following our Packa-Ching running total updates, you'll know that, thus far, Packa-Ching has collected a total of 128 829kg of recyclable waste from the Langa community, and given out a total of R129 070 in return. With the growth of Packa-Ching, first in the Western Cape and then country-wide, these figures are expected to increase exponentially. 😀

A young girl takes a break from a game of kick-the-ball in Woodlane Village informal settlement. The improvised housing constructed of wood and plastic can be seen in the background. Given the temporary nature of the settlement, Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality has prohibited the use of more durable materials. In July 2016, a fire destroyed 300 shacks and killed five residents. #documentaryphotography  #socialjustice #southafrica #informalsettlement  #pretoriaeast  #endpoverty  #right2housing #adequatehousing

What equals the weight of the Springbok Rugby Team 70 times over? The amount of recyclable waste that has been collected by the Packa-Ching project! We are insanely proud of this initiative and of the Langa community. In exchange for 128 829kg of recyclable waste (so far!), Packa-Ching has paid out a total of R129 070. These numbers just keep on growing.

(1/6) The walk through the informal settlements of Valparaíso, Chile was one of the most insightful days of my life. Despite the clear poverty there was a sense happiness and community spirit that simply didn’t exist in the areas considered ‘developed’. This region was destroyed by a forest fire in 2014 and despite the hardship, the community has overcome this- rebuilding homes and getting back in with their lives. Was such an experience. The first vlog from the trip is up now✌🏼

I saw this coming. I wonder what the @effsouthafrica is saying abt this. They told people to take over vacant land and without thinking ppl decided to eract shacks near a flooding river.  We know you are fighting a good fight but people cannot be advises to put their lives in danger just for the sake or getting land back. Our safety comes first.

It's a know fact that the Moretele river floods. We growing up to it flooding and school children going missing but still people were adviced to eract shacks there... #Mamelodi

Evening gospel in Woodlane Village , an informal settlement located in the heart of the wealthy suburb of Moreleta Park in Pretoria. Woodlane Village comprises 846 households representing around 3000 people from Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Mozambique, and South Africa. Most of the residents are economic refugees. The village is called “Plastic View” by the surrounding homeowners who describe the place as a hotbed of crime and pestilence — and oppose community-building efforts. The village is a crucible for the tensions South Africa is experiencing around land, migration, housing, and economic segregation. #documentaryphotography  #socialjustice #southafrica #informalsettlement  #pretoriaeast  #endpoverty  #right2housing #adequatehousing

The village is a crucible for the tensions South Africa is experiencing around land, migration, housing, and economic segregation. #documentaryphotography  #socialjustice  #southafrica  #informalsettlement  #pretoriaeast  #endpoverty  #right2housing  #adequatehousing

// BARRIO LIFE // When I came to Medellin's poorest barrios, I was expecting misery and suffering, violence and disrepair. I remember when I walked these streets the first time I was full of fear and prejudice.
•
But what I found was love, infinite quantities of it. I found life, vibrant and proud. I found human connection, the kind we lost a long time ago in our modern societies. And I found innovation and resilience, a surprisingly well organised system among the apparent chaos.
•
It's still plagued with poverty and social injustice, it would be a lie to deny it. But there's so much more than that today. There's also a lot of hope. The future is bright ✨

As the United Nations (UN) gears up for this year's World Water Day on Thursday, 22 March, the body has reiterated the importance of water under the theme 'Nature for Water'. They will be using the day to encourage people from all walks of life to continue using water sparingly. The UN said 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home. Olwethu Maiene, who lives in Briardene Informal Settlement is one of the fortunate few who has access to clean running water. Hundreds of residents living in informal shacks at the settlement share a communal water point. The four-year-old has already learned a few water saving tips.(Photo credit: @lovejoy_mlaba) #waterresources #sustainability #everydropcounts #waterwise  #aguaesvida #getoutside #insta #tuesdaymotivation #instagram #gogreen. #climatechange. #earth #UnitedNations #WorldWaterDay #Briardene #informalsettlement #sparingly

And our Packa-Ching project statistics keep climbing. This week, the total amount of recyclable waste brought in by the Langa community equals 54 white rhinos!
Packa-Ching is a community initiative spearheaded by Polyco that incentivises everyday South Africans to recycle by encouraging a change in behaviour and a shift in the way people perceive recyclable packaging waste. By bringing in recyclable waste to be weighed, members receive money that is loaded onto a MasterCard (or as we like to call it, a Kilorands Card) and can be spent immediately after the transaction is complete. Last year August saw the launch of Packa-Ching's pilot project in the informal settlement of Langa. #makingwastework #packaching #recycling #communityproject #langa #township #informalsettlement #capetownmag #community #recyclingcommunity #southafrica #capetown

Take a break because listening and watching is learning; each building is telling us a story just as people do.

Portrait from my long-term project documenting Woodlane Village , an informal settlement located in the heart of the wealthy suburb of Moreleta Park in Pretoria. Woodlane Village comprises 846 households representing around 3000 people from Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Mozambique, and South Africa. Most of the residents are economic refugees. The village is called “Plastic View” by the surrounding homeowners who describe the place as a hotbed of crime and pestilence — and oppose community-building efforts.

One week later, and our Packa-Ching stats continue to grow. In total, the pilot Packa-Ching project, operating in the informal settlement Langa, has collected almost 4 sperm whales worth of recyclable waste! We are so proud of the Packa-Ching community and the difference you are making. #makingwastework #packaching #recycling #communityproject #langa #informalsettlement #capetownmag #community #recyclingcommunity #southafrica

This is to the women who stand tall, who show strength and perseverance, and who will not settle for adversity. May your smile shine across all darkness. May your strength stand firm for eternity. May your presence shape the world into a marvel of reality.

With Polyco's community project Packa-Ching growing so quickly, we thought it an important and exciting effort to share the weekly project stats: the amount of waste collected, and the amount of money paid out to Packa-Ching members. Currently, Packa-Ching is operating twice in a week in the Langa informal settlement. On these days, the Packa-Ching trailer parks itself at a pre-designated location, and hundreds of Langa community members bring their sorted recyclable waste to the trailer in return for money loaded onto their Kilorand cards. To date, we have collected a total of 114 192kg of recyclable waste, and paid out a total of R113 276 to the community of Langa. 114 192kg is equivalent to 19 African Bush Elephants - a phenomenal feat thus far. We have much more ground to cover. This is only the beginning of Packa-Ching! #makingwastework #packaching #recycling #communityproject #langa #informalsettlement #capetownmag

“Columbian week - studying cities and societies”, Medellin, Colombia 🇨🇴 They are called differently-slums, informal settlements, favelas. All of them depending on different locations in the city have things in common and also differences. Most cases residents are exposed to risks caused by natural disasters as landslides, and earthquakes or informal power-structures setting the rules in the neighborhood and which balances on borders of crimes. Residents of these settlements have also complicated relationship with municipality - most cases the legal status of their buildings and land is not recognized. These are people who are with one leg in the “grey zone” of city’s social, economic, and legal life. Despite of uncertainties and hardships - flowers and colors are everywhere!
