Madulammoho Housing Association
Madulammoho, a social housing organisation and MES’s sister company, is growing from strength to strength with seven buildings already under their ownership and management. Together, the two companies create a meaningful synergy: Madulammoho provides affordable housing while MES provides supporting services and empowers the tenants – these services include training, social work services and basic care services. An updated service level agreement (SLA) between MES and Madulammoho ratifes the partnership between the two companies.
Madulammoho developed out of the housing initiatives of MES and in 2005 Madulammoho became a Section 21 Company with its own board of directors.Their mandate is to roll out new shelter, transitional, communal and social housing stock for clients in the Hillbrow area. Apart from making housing units available,
Madulammoho also provides facilities that are conducive to the development of their tenants. Through their SLA with MES, tenants can access social, health, ECD and skills development services. Currently Madulammoho employs over 70 personnel (including security & maintenance personnel who are trained by Madulammoho themselves). Madulammoho and MES work very closely together and can be described as the hardware (Madulammoho developing affordable accommodation) and the software (MES’s empowering communities) that makes sustainable development possible in the inner-city.
Madulammoho Housing Association (MHA), through its provision of affordable housing solutions at cost recovery rates and its focus on social development, strives to be the heartbeat of affordable housing in Johannesburg’s inner-city. Madulammoho develops its housing units to cater specifi cally for low income earners with salaries ranging between R1500 and R3500 per month. Over 2,400 tenants call Madulammoho projects their home, with a total of 952 units currently under Madulammoho management. Madulammoho is currently in discussion with the Provincial Department of Housing to manage a further 2400 units under the CRU programme in Soweto. The company implements a management model that ensures a safe, clean living environment for every tenant staying in their buildings.
Madulammoho’s model consists of different accommodation options available to the poor and lower income communities. These include: Shelter, transitional, communal and social housing accommodation.
The Stepped Approach provides people with alternative choices of rental options for different incomes, leaving the choice up to the respective household. Madulammoho’s focus to change bad neighbourhoods into vibrant communities is part of the drive to renovate old buildings but also to partner with other key stakeholders to form neighbourhood precincts that provide clean-up facilities and security. In this way, Madulammoho plays a signifi cant role in the Ekhaya Neighbourhood Precinct of which MES is also a part of.
