Workshop on community-based worker systems
2006-11-30

The Centre for Development Support (CDS) at the University of the Free State (UFS) presented a workshop on community-based worker systems on the Main Campus in Bloemfontein. Partners from Kenya, Lesotho, Uganda and South Africa are working together to see how these systems can be used to widen access to services and empower communities in the process. The aim of the workshop was to bring pilot partners and practitioners involved in community-based worker systems together with national, provincial and local government and to explore the implications for mainstreaming these systems in South Africa. The CDS at the UFS recently conducted an evaluation of community-based worker systems in South Africa, of which the findings were also discussed.

Attending the workshop were, from the left: Mr Ian Goldman (Chief Executive Officer of the Khanya-African Institute for Community-driven Development), Councillor Leonard Makhanya (Mangaung Local Municipality), Prof Lucius Botes (Director of the Centre for Development Support at the UFS), and Mr Alfa Mahlako (Director of Sustainable Livelihoods at the national Department of Social Development).
