Getting ahead: An EPWP success story
Meet Smith Oerson, a contractor at Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve near Robertson.
Smith has gone from being a salaried supervisor at a local primary school, to being the owner of his own business, contracting to CapeNature. The video embedded below is his testimony of his time as a CapeNature project participant in the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP).
The province-wide footprint of CapeNature’s operations presents an opportunity to improve the lives of people and communities, especially in the rural landscape, by providing job opportunities and reducing poverty and unemployment.
These projects focus on historically disadvantaged communities – especially women, youth and people with disabilities.
