Hlalakahle is on the Northern, upper-most part of Ward 16. It can be accessed through a main road from Gottenburg or another main road from Thorndale. The northern part of the village is the Manyeleti Game Reserve.

Initial contact with the village is made through the villageInduna(head-man) and the chairperson of the village CDF (Community Development Forum). The CDF in this village is mostly made up of very active women who also run the local crèche/ kindergarten. A meeting was held with these two structures to introduce the SWELL (Securing Water to Enhance Local Livelihoods) concept and to highlight the intention of carrying out an assessment process in the village. It was agreed that the process can take place, a date for the assessment was set and the CDF began inviting villagers to the meeting. It was held at the crèche/kindergarten, which also is the venue for the mobile clinic that visits the village once a month. [authors abstract]
