Another success story for A Re Sebetseng as City launch official website

President Cyril Ramaphosa and Mayor Herman Mashaba arriving at yesterday's Youth Day event in Soweto.

The City of Johannesburg has officially launched its website for the A Re Sebetseng monthly volunteer cleaning campaign: www.aresebetseng.co.za

The platform will make it easy for residents of Johannesburg to access all the relevant information pertaining to the campaign, which includes the following, amongst others:

  • The aim of A Re Sebetseng as envisioned by Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba;
  • All the points where residents can collect gloves and bags before each clean-up;
  • Where residents can participate in their region each month;
  • All the relevant contact details; and
  • News articles about the campaign.

This platform has been made possible by the generous pledge of support to a cleaner Johannesburg by WAO Host, who developed the website and will be hosting the website free of charge for the next year, where after the City will take ownership of the domain.

The new website has replaced the site the City has been using to date (www.aresebetsengjhb.wordpress.com). This site has officially been shut down.

The A Re Sebetseng monthly volunteer city-wide cleaning campaign was launched on 14 August 2017 and is based on the monthly cleaning campaign of Rwanda’s capital City, Kigali, named Umuganda. A Re Sebetseng means “let’s work” and calls on communities to take ownership of their communities to work towards achieving a common goal – that of a clean city.

 

Since the campaign’s inception, more than 35 000 residents have participated in over 1300 clean-up events.

WAO Host’s Director, Mr Evans Akorli, said his company responded to the call by the Mayor to the residential and business community of the City to support and participate in this noble cause: “Our main drive was to make it easy for all stakeholders to get involved wherever they are. We are therefore proud to be associated with this vital initiative to keep our City clean.”
