In 2013 the first social audit in South Africa was conducted by the Social Justice Coalition with the community of Khayelitsha following their quest for dignified sanitation in the informal settlements of Cape Town. The social audit focused on the delivery and servicing of the blue portable chemical toilets called the “Mshengu toilets”. SJC, Ndifuna Ukwazi, the International Budget Partnership, Planact, Afesis Corplan, Equal Education and other organisations with the assistance of Open Society Foundation for South Africa went to India where social audits were originated. The SAN was developed in 2015 and formalised in 2016 with the aim of incrementally expanding the use of social audits as a legitimate and effective form of community monitoring and participation tool.
