In 2000, a group of domestic workers, caregivers, cleaners, gardeners, caretakers, chauffeurs and restaurant/hotel workers approached the Development Action Group (DAG), a non-governmental organisation, to support them with project management, training, capacity development, advocacy and lobbying. Most members of the group resided in the Atlantic Seaboard area of Cape Town or in the Cape Town CBD. Low-income earners started this initiative in 1996 to address their housing needs and called their group Rainbow Housing as its membership represented the diversity of "the rainbow nation".
