"Government has since 2004 run the successful Expanded Public Works Programme, which provides work opportunities and training for the unemployed.
“The new phase will provide six million work opportunities by 2019. We are building on the phenomenal success of the past few years,” President Zuma said.
The EPWP was launched in 2004. It is a nationwide programme covering all spheres of government and state-owned enterprises.
The programme provides an important avenue for labour absorption and income transfers to poor households in the short to medium-term.
The EPWP Projects employ workers on a temporary or on-going basis either by government, contractors or other non-governmental organisations under the Ministerial Conditions of Employment for the EPWP or learnership employment conditions.
Since its inception, the EPWP has created a total of 5.5 million work opportunities.
