Better Living Challenge (BLC)
The Better Living Challenge (BLC) is one of the Western Cape Government’s (WCG) projects, proudly hosted by the Department of Human Settlements and the Department of Economic Affairs and Tourism. The project aims to assist residents with self-build skills and knowledge.
This knowledge can then be used to build improved structures within informal settlements.
The BLC has developed a 13 part video series which will help informal settlement residents gain a better understanding of topics such as layout, foundations, building double storey structures, and so much more.
To find out more about what else the Western Cape Government is doing to improve the lives of informal settlement residents, please see the work of the Department of Human Settlements’ Informal Settlement Support Plan (ISSP).
