Dlala Nje celebrates 5 years of changing lives in the heart of Hillbrow

Written by: diannem

5 years ago, friends got together to launch Dlala Nje (Just Play), a community based initiative in the heart of Jozi.

The organisation offers a safe space for youth from Ponte Towers and surrounding areas, and is funded through through inner-city tours and programs that attract tourists and visitors, from across the world, which change the negative perceptions people have about Hillbrow.

This Saturday, to celebrate 5 years of change making, they will be hosting a swimming part for the community - and everyone is welcome!

Date: 14 October Time: 10:00 - 15:00 at Ponte City!
