Clean Village

“When your environment is clean you feel happy motivated and healthy.”

Lailah Gifty Akita

Clean Village is a non-profit organization that positively impacts our community by cleaning up the streets of Kensington while creating employment opportunities for those who live in our neighborhood.

Driven by a love of our beautiful community, one steeped in history, Clean Village was founded by a small group of local residents who took ownership of a suburb that was falling into disrepair due to a lack of municipal maintenance.

Clean Village has spent the last 6 years working in Kensington, through donations made by our community and business owners to do the following;

  • Remove litter and dumping where possible
  • Cleaning street curbs and sidewalks and removal of weeds and plants
  • Grass cutting on sidewalks
  • Maintain roads where possible, clearing of storm water drains where possible
  • Remove unwanted graffiti, posters, room to rent signs, etc
  • Liaise with municipality and parks department regarding roads, illegal posters, broken or damaged infrastructure electricity issues, etc.
  • Report service delivery issues to relevant CoJ departments like Pikitup, JRA, City Parks, Joburg water, etc
“Where the quality of life goes down for the environment, the quality of life goes down for humans.”
