Who we Are
Madulammoho is a Sesotho word describing communities that live together despite their diversities.
We are a registered non-profit (Section 21) Social Housing Institution (SHI) that was established in 2004 to provide affordable transitional and communal housing to Johannesburg’s inner city community. Madulammoho is registered as a fully accredited SHI with the Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA)
The Madulammoho Story
Using an economic cost recovery model with affordability as the starting point, we pioneered a model that meets the housing needs of the very poor.
The Stepped Approach
As people are supported and their skills are developed, they are able to earn more and, as a result, their housing options improve.
Our core values
- Assuring transparency in all levels of management and service provision.
- Encouraging a youthful, vibrant and dynamic workplace and community.
- Ensuring ongoing opportunities for learning.
- Creating an environment that supports the personal growth and development of our staff and tenants.
- Valuing all forms of diversity, both within our workplace and our community.
- Caring about the welfare of our staff, tenants and community.
- Celebrating continued innovation and excellence.
Madulammoho Housing Association
Today, Madulammoho operates ten housing projects, six in the Inner City, two on the West Rand and two in the Western Cape with 2600 rental units. This allows more than 7,800 low-income earners to call Madulammoho buildings “home”.
Though we are a social housing institution, Madulammoho is not just about bricks and mortar. Through our various partnerships we help build holistic communities that foster social development. Madulammoho also creates opportunities for our tenants to engage in sports and recreational activities like boxing, soccer and aerobics through our Community Wellness Programme, Bambisanani Hands of Hope (BHH).
Madulammoho’s work in the community has not gone unrecognized. In 2008-2009, we were the proud recipients of the Platinum Impumelelo Award for Innovative Work in the Field of Poverty Reduction and Community Development; the Johannesburg Development Agency’s Halala Joburg Award: ‘Living Joburg – Property Management and Affordable Housing’; and the Govan Mbeki Award for Best Social Housing Institution of the Year: Gauteng.
