15m South Africans Receive Social Grants

President, Jacob Zuma, says close to 15 million South Africans obtain social grants from the Department of Social Development.

Speaking in Cape Town where he delivered his State of the Nation Address 2011, Zuma pointed out that, “We will phase in the extension of the Child Support Grant to cover eligible children under the age of 18 years.”

He further said that since his administration is building a developmental and not a welfare state, the social grants will be linked to economic activity and community development, to enable short-term beneficiaries to become self-supporting in the long run.
