The Portfolio Committee of Women, Children and People with Disabilities are up in arms. They deplore the continuing exclusion of people with disabilities from the formal employment sector despite commitments by government and business to aggressively empower people with disabilities and put them to work in the economy.
Their assessment followed a week-long oversight visit to Gauteng by the Portfolio Committee, to view projects that were established principally to create employment and develop the skills of women and people with disabilities. The projects visited were funded by government entities such as the Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA), the National Empowerment Fund (NEF) and the Department of Trade and Industry.
