COASTAL CARE EPWP PROJECT COMES TO AN END

 

This project started back in September 2013 and has come to an end for the current beneficiaries and Zetaline threw a farewell lunch on Thursday 30 July 2015, in honour of those who made this project a success.

Mr Josia Modiga (Project Implementer for Zetaline) said that “this project was aimed at keeping the Plett coastline in an attractive state from Robberg to Keurbooms and wooden lookout decks was part of the end result.” He also stated that training was provided to all beneficiaries in Environmental Awareness & Health and Safety and praised the administration for efficiently applying these EPWP beneficiaries where needed within the Municipality.

“Bitou and Mossel Bay Municipality has been allotted a communal amount of R12 million for a similar project which will commence in Bitou during October 2015” said Mr Mark Fourie (Bitou Manager: Human Settlements, Beaches and Parks)

 

Ms Thobeka Gqolana one of the beneficiaries said “by being part of this project I was able to put food on my table and it instilled skills within me which no one can take away from me.”

Mr Allen Paulse (Bitou Municipal Manager) – stated that “Poverty knows no political boundaries and these projects aim to stimulate the economical hunger within Bitou.”

Cllr Memory Booysen (Executive Mayor of Bitou) began his keynote address by saying “I will be open and frank and start off by saying that all was not sunshine during the course of this project and yes we have received various complaints. But we can only improve on those previous flaws. Let wearing a green overall be a stepping stone for your personal development. It is never too late to make an impression; it is never too late to change your attitude. Let us all bring along our skill-sets when we come to work in the morning. I give this team an overall 8 out of 10.”
