DAKU has been instrumental in championing social infrastructure.

The PRASA station has led to three station upgrades in the Western Cape with social housing mixed use development. Daku Deed as a Section 21 non-profit, champions the development of mixed residential social infrastructure and housing around South African provinces battling with housing backlogs. The company’s primary purpose is to develop particularly for the disadvantaged members of the community. This includes establishment of mixed residential social housing institutional hubs with quality, affordable rental stock on a sustainable basis. Our mission is to build an organization that is capable of contributing towards the restructuring of South African cities by providing well located, affordable housing accommodation and community services to the low to middle income earners that have been excluded from the formal housing market.
