The participation rate for the site is capped at 1000 but the Implementing Agent was allowed by DCogta to recruit an extra 10% to compensate for the absenteeism, drop-outs, deaths of participants etc. The maximum total of participants was 1200 hence the actual number is at 1045 in Feb 2017.
Beneficiary of the Month: M’s Motshdisi Thulo from Ward 1 in Marquard
I would like to take this opportunity to thank CWP for an amazing work that they have done for me. They came into my house a couple of months back wanting to check what they could do for me and my child, i told them my child is not receiving a social grant and as a result iam struggling to maintain her.
I did not have ID to apply for my baby’s social grant, so CWP has referred me to Dept. Home Affairs to enquire what could be done for me to get the necessary documents. I did go together with members of their team to make an enquiry and I managed to get necessary documentation as advised by CWP and eventually got my ID for the first time in my life, and my child also has the Birth Certificate. On top of everything i applied for a social grant and my application was approved and my child started receiving the money from the month of July.
I really appreciate what CWP has done for me, my child and my whole family. Thank you very much.
M’s Masola from Clocolan (Setsoto Site)
I am a mother of 4 children aging from 4 to 16 years, i am unemployed has no income whatsoever, but myself and my family are surviving through donations of agricultural produce and clothes from CWP and my church, sometimes our pastor will give us money to buy food.
CWP Supervisors came to my house back in March 2016 while they were performing HBC surveys, i explained to them the condition wê are living in and why my children are not getting a social grant which is the unavailability of the birth certificates. They then arranged a date with me to go to Home Affairs to enquire about the requirements in applying for the certificates. I went to the institution together with CWP supervisors and eventually obtained the information need, then i started collecting and submitting the requited documents to the institution and 3 months later i received an SMS with good news, instructing me to collect the 3 birth certificates and 1 ID for my elder child.
I truly want to thank CWP for their endless support they gave to me and my family.
