info4africa Launches eThekwini Civil Society Directory
The eThekwini Health and Wellbeing Support Services Directory has been launched by info4africa - a self-funded centre in UKZN’s School of Applied Human Sciences - in partnership with the eThekwini Municipality.
‘In line with Durban’s vision to be the “warmest and most caring place to be”, the Directory will help increase the visibility of health and wellbeing support services in our City and enable greater connection and collaboration between organisations working in eThekwini,’ said info4africa Director, Mrs Debbie Heustice.
The Directory contains more than 1 300 health, wellbeing and socio-economic development service providers working in the eThekwini Municipality. Contact information is provided for each organisation, details of the services they provide to vulnerable groups and other stakeholders, and a list of suitable shelters providing accommodation to the homeless, street children and unemployed adults in eThekwini’s inner city.
The Directory is funded by the eThekwini Municipality through the iTrump Area Based Management (ABM) Area. Delegates from all sectors attending the Civil Society Summit received a copy of the Directory to aid their ongoing Sector work in the Metro.
