CHILD Welfare SA: KwaDukuza received a major boost from the National Lotteries Commission ( NLC) to the tune of R995 000 for the 2017/2018 financial year.

The funds were approved for operational costs, poverty alleviation programmes for victims of HIV/AIDS, the domestic worker’s empowerment programme, safe house facility, social relief for indigent children and staff development programmes.

According to welfare senior social work manager Penny Dhaver, the funds from the National Lotteries Commission will help the society sustain the safe house and the domestic workers empowerment programme.

“The domestic workers empowerment programme was initiated in 1997 and involves the training of unemployed women and men in domestic work. Approximately 250 students graduate annually.

“They secure employment as domestic workers, child care workers waitresses and office assistants. Income is generated to improve their quality of life. The project is successfully sustained for 20 years.

“The safe house facility was initiated in 2011 and is a safe haven for abused, neglected and abandoned children. With the high rate of child abuse and abandoned children, the safe house is an essential facility in KwaDukuza.”

The allocation of the funds is a clear indication that the society complies with the requirements of the National Lotteries Commission.

“In terms of service delivery, we are doing our best. It is also an acknowledgment of the vital role society plays in the social upliftment of the community.”

The management committee and staff of the society place on record their sincere appreciation to the National Lotteries Commission for the generous­ allocation of the grant said Dhaver.
