The initiative showcases government’s continued commitment to provide on-going sustainable work opportunities for destitute households in the effort to significantly create jobs, reduce poverty, and grow and transform the economy using labour intensive methods of road construction and maintenance.

The Department of Public Works and Roads in the North West  is currently implementing the Itirele Maintenance Programme adapted from the successes of the Zibambele Household Contractor initiative to address provincial Expanded Public Works Programme opportunity constraints and challenges.
