Research has shown that housing is a fundamental bedrock to a better and improved quality of life cannot be underestimated. In other words, having proper housing allows stability in your life, facilitates the storage of your belongings, a foundation from which to look for a job if you are a job seeker, to build from a small house into a better one, and provides stability for your children’s education. It is however estimated that approximately 12 million people are still without adequate housing in South Africa. Current estimates of the backlog stand at about 2.1 to 2.5 million units. Government has continued to provide various subsidies to the poor to aid the housing effort. These initiatives include individual housing subsidies, incremental housing programmes, rental housing programmes and so on. One institution trying to make a difference in this regard is Real People.
