Welcome to Girls Make The City, Cape Town, South Africa: ‘Voices of Change,’

Where empowerment meets urban transformation.

Watch our PROMO VIDEO on Spotify!


Subscribe to our first Podcast Series launching on Monday, January 22, 2024, where you can explore stories of resilience, creativity, and community-driven change in Langa. Embarking from the potential of the neighbourhood, we’ve empowered 17 young girls to co-create new solutions for the challenges they face. Utilising regenerative development principles, the girls swiftly discovered their own potential and that of the neighbourhood. They quickly realised they were the experts, and the solutions lay within them and their community.

Get ready to witness the magic of Girls Make The City, a force creating safe, inclusive, and thriving public spaces for all! Your early subscription ensures you won’t miss a moment of the transformative journey ahead.

Girls Make The City, a Wetopia project proudly brought to you by Open Design Afrika, isn’t just a project; it’s a movement crafting a future where every girl’s voice echoes through the streets.
