introduction to northern cape
INTRODUCTION TO NORTHERN CAPE
  • Bordering the cold Atlantic Ocean, Northern Cape is a province of extremes: the lowest and highest temperatures in the country, the lowest rainfall, the smallest population (2% of the total population of South Africa) and the lowest population density (2,0 persons per square kilometer – compared to 375 people per square kilometer in Gauteng). But the surface area (361 830 square kilometers) is the largest of the nine comprising 30 % of the total area of the country (1 219 090 square kilometers).
  • 36% of the population are under the age of 15 and 4% over the age of 65.
  • Approximately 79% of the entire adult population (aged 20 years and older) of Northern Cape do not have Standard 10.
  • 23% (almost 1 in every 4) of the black population in the Northern Cape have no formal education at all.

ENVISAGED TRAINING

slide121
The province received mobile unit trucks per office which have been used, for instance, for the first time in the Platfontein Project in February 2006 to register Xhu and Khwe communities.
  • In March 2006 three (3) of these mobile trucks were successfully deployed at National Council of Provinces (“NCOP”) March 2006 “Taking Parliament To The People” in Kgalagadi, an event that lasted for a week.
  • At Kimberley Regional Office, during the 2006 Valentines Day the office had a mass marriage ceremony of a total of 80 persons who responded to the invite which coincided with Deputy Minister’s initiative to marry couples at Robbin Island. The success of the Kimberley regional Office was due to officials’ organisational abilities and more notably personally funded the event gifts and beverages for the couples and guests.
  • House visits are intend to target specifically the bedridden or elderly applicants. Kuruman District Office , had a joint registration campaign with the Department of Social services in Dibeng. Door to door visits were conducted to showcase children’s birth certificates for social grants registration, as well as house visit for elderly people and people living with HIV and Aids, disabled with request from the Community Development Workers (CDW). An active House Visit Programmes, for instance in Kimberley Regional Office, resulted in a total of 78 house visits in 2005, and such visits are inclusive of greater Kimberley Area and Griekwastad, Hopetown as well as Windsorton.
  • The province,actively participates in national programmes / activities initiated by other government departments for an example “Public Service Week” initiated by DPSA, wherein the offices delivered one stop service under a tent.
