Working For Water
Mhlathuze Water has been implementing Working For Water Programme for the Department of Water and Sanitation since 2003. This is an Extended Public Works Programme aimed at alleviating poverty through job creation for rural communities while assisting them in terms of skills development. It aims to conserve water resources through the removal of alien invasive plants. Approximately 600 people have benefited from this project, including: women, youth and people living with disabilities. Several projects are conducted around dams such as in Mfule and Goedetrouw Dam. Huge areas are being cleared annually.
