Welcome to Pedi
Improving Philippi Through Partnerships and Strategies
The Philippi Economic Development Initiative (Pedi) fosters economic growth and development in Philippi, a large urban and semi-urban area in the vibrant Cape Flats region with a population exceeding 500,000.
Since its establishment in 1998 by the City of Cape Town, Pedi has been passionately working as a non-profit company with a clear vision to transform Philippi from a disadvantaged community into a shining example of a thriving economic hub.
To realize our vision, Pedi operates three distinct business units: Precinct Management Unit (PMU), Presidential Employment Programme (PEP), and the Philippi Agrihub.
The Precinct Management Unit (PMU) aims to revitalize Philippi East by implementing cleaning and safety projects, assisting local businesses with access to City services, prioritizing stakeholder engagement, and fostering community ownership.
