What is the Community Work Programme?

The Community Work Programme (CWP) is a community driven government programme based in the Department of Cooperative Governance (DCoG).


The CWP has over the years been able to establish 10 key strategic partnerships in order to enhance the quality of work outputs and sustain projects initiatives. However, Implementing Agents enter into a number of informal partnerships or cooperation arrangements in implementing various initiatives that contribute to useful work since work activities cut across different sectors.

The Community Work Programme is currently being implemented in 208 sites covering a total of 201 municipalities. It is envisaged that by the end of the current financial year, the programme would have been extended to cover every municipality in the country.
