About Us

Planact is a non-profit organisation, established in 1985 based in Johannesburg. We work on eliminating the exclusion of vulnerable communities in local government processes. Planact advocates for accountability of municipalities to their respective communities and promotes the inclusion of vulnerable communities in local government policy, processes and practice.

Intervention Strategy

Planact’s aim is to develop a knowledgeable, active society with access to all resources, that is aware of its rights and responsibilities and, an accountable state with clear local government systems and procedures.
