The programme has provided emergency schools, early childhood centres, technical workshops and the eradication of mud structures.
The project is part of the national Department of Basic Education's Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Initiative programme (ASIDI).
ASIDI is an on-going programme aimed at implementing the basic safety norms and standards in school infrastructure.
“We currently are sitting at 82% of the projects done. We have a total of 73 school infrastructure upliftment projects valued at R638 million that need to be completed by the end of year,” CDC Programme Director for Education and Sports, Recreation, Arts and Culture, Zine Mtanda, said.
Mtanda said the remaining 13 schools would be completed by December.
“Eradicating mud schools restores dignity to education and is transforming people’s lives for the better.
“Learners and educators have better access to improved environments for learning, teaching and growth,” she said.
About 1 575 people were employed to build the schools in the Eastern Cape.
“Schools play a critical role as a catalyst for a better life and the gateway in equipping society to improve its livelihood,” Vilakazi said.
