The Social Justice Coalition

The Social Justice Coalition is  a membership-based social movement made up of 17 branches across Khayelitsha, Kraaifontein, Crossroads, and Gugulethu in Cape Town.

The SJC conducted the first social audit in South Africa in 2013 in Khayelitsha, focusing on the blue portable chemical toilets known as the “Mshengu Toilets”. The work they did in the Mshengu social audit inspired a lot of civic organisations to learn more about social audits and to conduct their own social audits. SJC  has since conducted numerous social audits in Khayelitsha raging from the provision and delivery of sanitation services.
