Annual Report 2008/2009 (Part 1)

01 January 2008

The state of the world economy will inevitably affect us here in South Africa; not only making the plight of the poor more difficult, but also adding to the number of people who are unemployed and who have to rely on the State for support and assistance.

Government has continued to acknowledge the need for a concerted effort to address the issue of poverty and has again made the necessary resources available. The priority remains the inclusion and nurturing, through access to economic and development opportunities, of as many vulnerable people as possible.
