The Vuku’zenzele Youth project is located in the West Coast town of Elands Bay. The group planned to utilize land belonging to the Cederberg Municipality to plant and produce vegetables. The project never realized this goal due to the lack of leadership and political interference. DWA IWRM in partnership with the Cederberg Municipality has been able to resolve much of the conflict helping the group to refocus on capacity building and further development through New Venture Creation learnership funded by the Transport SETA, Sea Harvest and DWA IWRM. Their objectives include water and water for food security, youth involvement, empowerment and capacity building.
