Ndufina Ukwazi advocate for a more equal, spatially just and inclusive city by protecting and expanding access to well-located land and affordable housing. They are an activist organisation and law centre that challenges the reproduction of spatial apartheid in Cape Town and promotes social, economic and racial justice through increased access to land and dignified homes.

Founded in 2011, Ndifuna Ukwazi is an activist organisation and law centre that advocates for access to well-located land and affordable housing for poor and working class families, communities and social movements. In their campaigns, they use a combination of community organising, research, advocacy and litigation to advance urban land justice and fuel systemic change. Their theory of change holds that leverage for social change is created by bringing together the use of the law, evidence-based research, media advocacy and, importantly, a movement of people. They believe that this convergence creates the right atmosphere for social change.
