Our Vision

A safe and beautiful Howick Falls area, having the wonderful potential to becoming a destination/ place of choice for tourists, visitors and local families, friends and individuals.

This is possible through voluntary participation in exciting and innovative projects between individual members of the community, the business sector, government, private security industry, churches, schools, media, non-profit organisations, community based organisations, and specific interest groups, etc. 

A huge, positive difference can be made through 60 minutes or more of volunteerism, materials and supplies and/ or monetary donations (once off or monthly). Since November 2016, a number of action steps have already been taken to improve the area. Opportunities abound for further improvements. 

The partnership projects identified are considered support to the uMngeni Municipality and South African Police Service, and not intended to replace or take over any service related function.
