Call for More Grants to Alleviate Poverty

The National Working Group on Social Security is calling on government to increase the number of people accessing social grants to alleviate poverty

The National Working Group on Social Security has called on government to increase the number of people accessing social grants to alleviate poverty.

In its recent submission to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC), the coalition’s Isabelle Frye, who is also director at Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute, pointed out that, “President Jacob Zuma acknowledged that social grants remain the main effective form of poverty alleviation.”

Frye argues that, “But he hasn’t at least announced the extension of the child support grant to children aged 15 to 18, particularly since he stressed the importance of secondary school enrolment.”
