On 28 October 2021, the Cape Winelands District Municipality presented a certificate to Mayor Gesie van Deventer and Municipal Manager Geraldine Mettler for our outstanding performance in the implementation of the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP).
During the period 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021, we successfully completed 68 EPWP projects, creating 1787 work opportunities.
Funding for EPWP is made available by National Government and is managed by municipalities. This achievement shows once again that Stellenbosch Municipality is serious about creating opportunities wherever we can. By optimally managing these funds and actively rolling out EPWP initiatives, we have exceeded even our own targets.
We will continue to use these funds to manage meaningful EPWP programmes that lead to skills development and jobs for residents of the Greater Stellenbosch.
