About Makana Revive!
Since mid 2017, Makana Revive! has evolved from an association of concerned citizens to being a registered Trust and a recognised community benefit organisation.
But our roots remain – as Makana citizens committed to improving the safety, health, security, sustainability and cleanliness of Grahamstown (Makhanda). Makana Revive! uses money generously contributed to improve and actually do things – from supporting a sustainable environment, to addressing safety, security and the overall look of the city.
Makana Revive! has a number of priorities including installation of 24/7 CCTV cameras, refuse collection, general sanitation and cleanliness. Future plans include armed patrols and visible policing, safety, by-law enforcement and ensuring Grahamstown (Makhanda) is once again a great place to visit.

We have the Power to impact our Future, and we’re doing something about it
As funding is available, our priority is to implement projects which have the most impact in creating jobs, confidence and growth for the entire community. A safe and secure town attracts sustainable growth!
The Makana Revive! Board of Trustees panel identifies projects which have urgency and positive economic and social impact. Contractors are invited to tender and the work is then approved. The current committee of volunteers has engineers, entrepreneurs, and professionals with over 150 years combined experience in commerce, management and capital projects.
