“In 1994, with the inauguration of our first democratically elected president, Shawco moved from welfare to a development model – still running primary health care clinics, but moving to skills development and education programmes through the ‘welfare’ arm. In 2003, this move was further consolidated by the narrowing of the developmental sector to youth education,” the site reads.

Currently, Shawco is divided into two main service sectors – education and health, it adds. However, Van Niekerk said a third stream – entrepreneurial development – is about economic empowerment, creating jobs and empowering people for the open labour market.

He said the centre works in partnership with all local stakeholders in the community from the seniors’ club to the ward councillor, the police and the NGOs.

“Everyone come and celebrate – Shawco has been a part of this community for 75 years,” said Van Niekerk.
