Rooftops has partnered with SERI to implement the South African portion of the project. The goal is to increase women’s equal access to land and housing rights.

Upon arrival, Kerry was introduced to the Women’s Spaces team, SERI's Executive Director Nomzamo Zondo, SERI the organization, and the Inner City Federation (ICF). Kerry received an overview of the Women’s Spaces project, its current activities, and a few planned activities.

The group visited four inner city buildings, led by the ICF. This included three occupied buildings, namely Jeanlaw Court, Manhattan Court, and 58 Auret, as well as one site of Temporary Emergency Accommodation, 133 Albert.

This visit forms part of the Women’s Spaces project at SERI which focuses on women’s rights to land and housing in sub-Saharan Africa.
