Pretoria - The City of Tshwane cannot reach and help every citizen struggling with drug addiction and other social challenges but through the help of non-profit organisations (NPO), it's possible.
This remark was made by a proud mayor Stevens Mokgalapa who gave over R20 million to 12 NGOs at Tshwane House .
Mokgalapa said the City put these organisations through “a very strict, professional and random” selection process before funding them to continue doing the great work they’ve been doing on the ground.
These organisations received various amounts after City of Tshwane representatives physically visited all of them to ensure that they actually exist and do the work.
Their needs were assessed and extensive evaluation of the critical work they’ve been doing in their communities was done.
