HBP’s purpose is to help transform Hout Bay into a place with much greater social and economic equality and inclusion, by fostering partnerships among organisations and individuals working to improve Hout Bay. We serve as an umbrella organisation, maintaining a view of the entire development system. We map the needs, and identify gaps and opportunities that can be addressed by forming strategic collaborations amongst relevant stakeholders: NGOs, government, civic organisations, community members and others. The Hout Bay Partnership strives to harness the collective power of individual interventions to ensure meaningful and sustainable change.
