The Minister of Social Development in South Africa, Ms Lindiwe Zulu, will on Monday, 08 November, host a delegation from the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, led by the Minister of Solidarity and Fight against Poverty, Mrs Myss Belmonde Dogo.
The two-day study tour will seek to share good practices between the two countries in the areas of social protection and social assistance in particular.
The Republic of Côte d'Ivoire complements South Africa’s remarkable work of its advanced comprehensive social assistance program and wishes to learn from its best practices especially during this time of a national state of disaster.
On the second day, the delegation will be accompanied by officials from SASSA to visit SASSA pay points to learn how South Africa renders its social assistance services to poor and vulnerable citizens.
The delegation will also get a chance to see how South Africa looks after children who end up in South Africa as child migrants.
