Magalies Case Study - 9 April 2019.pdf

MDI works with the Magaliesburg Stakeholder Forum that it played a large role in establishing. The Forum meets at the Nedbank Hub based in Hervormde Kerk Church Hall. It discusses members' current work and projects to address current community needs and potential initiatives they envisage undertaking to fulfil their own mandates. From time to time, Forum members request Nedbank Proud of My Town to support or provide services to the community via MDI. A recent example of this is COGTA's request for Fire Prevention Training for community members who had a need for such training during March 2023. 

Stakeholder Forum members include:

Local Schools


Community Police Forums

Community Fire Prevention Forums


Municipal councillors

Business Forums

Tourism forums

Local Municipality

NPO's working in Magaliesburg


Department of Social Development

Department of Justice

Youth Desks
