Enhancing Lives, Building Futures
The Presidential Employment Programme (PEP) is a National Treasury initiative implemented by Pedi and managed by the PMU, in collaboration with the City of Cape Town. The primary objective of the programme is to mitigate the adverse effects of COVID-19 on communities with high unemployment rates by providing short-term employment opportunities.
In addition to its core aim, the PEP seeks to empower its participants with practical skills and life-skill development that can enhance their chances of achieving sustainable livelihoods in the long run.
The third and final intake of 448 participants started their contract on 30 October 2023 and will end on 28 June 2024. As shown below, these participants hail from all 5 Wards, encompass a wide age range spanning from 20 to 63 years, predominantly consist of females, and boast diverse educational backgrounds. Their roles span across four distinct workstreams: Safety, Cleaning, Surveys, Beautification, and also positions with the management staff.
