WASSUP + DACN

At Sticky, we utilize participatory design methods to facilitate, co-ordinate and implement community-driven projects of all shapes and sizes. Our work is grounded in community capacity building, and we assist communities and stakeholders identify their goals, and to then build the skills and confidence they need to create change.

We have established long-term relationships with a number of grass-roots organizations in Diepsloot, with new relationships forming in other communities, and over the years we have worked together, with local government and businesses, to identify and deliver solutions to complex problems.
