Green Neighbourhood Project launches with clean-up- 19 July 2012
THE Greater Kyalami Conservancy’s Green Neighbourhood Project organised a Diepsloot clean-up for its first initiative on 18 July. The participants
cleared litter from the taxi rank and nearby streets and notified Joburg Water of water leaks.
Individuals, companies and around 200 Diepsloot community members helped to pick up litter. President of Noweto Business Chamber and manager of Diepsloot Mall Mzolisi Mbikwana welcomed the participants.
Deputy Minister of Economic Development Hlengiwe Mkhize, Diepsloot Extension 95 councillor Rogers Makhubele and the Community Works Programme also joined the clean-up.
Representative for The Foundation for World Spiritual Unity Kristin Kallesen said, “As Diepsloot is our immediate neighbour this was the perfect venue to launch the Kyalami Green Neighbourhood Project. We are facing social and environmental problems on a vast scale that can only be overcome through co-operation.”
