Welcome to the Knowledge Co-Op website
For many years, staff and students at the University of Cape Town (UCT) have worked in partnership with communities to address development challenges.
The UCT Knowledge Co-op builds on this tradition of social responsiveness – and aims to make it easier for community partners to access UCT’s skills, resources and professional expertise. The Knowledge Co-op helps initiate joint projects that benefit both the community and the university. It links community groups with appropriately qualified staff and students at UCT, and it supports both partners throughout the project – from initial planning to final product.
Current projects include:
A student investigating perceptions of land-owners regarding the value of clearing alien vegetation;
Students setting up Website and blogs for community groups;
A student and academic developing a tool to screen & train foster mothers for cluster foster care; and
A student helping to evaluate an NGO programme that rehabilitates young ex-prisoners.
