FIELDWORKER

Jantjie, is working 3 days a week with the displaced persons profiling, arranging for them to go to shelters; be relocated with family; hospital, institutions and in some instances work opportunities

DISPLACED PERSONS DATA
The stats below are from Security and Fieldworker reports over the last Two months December & JanuaryJantjie

• Population = 74
• Engagement = 34
• Follow ups = 30

Challenges:
• More Night Time Strollers in Sea Point area, need for more late night Outreach work
• Challenges with foreign nationals roaming the streets.
• Need more Shelter space
• Assessment facility needed on Beach Rd for after-hour assessments
• Control access to Public toilets till 20h00 at night
• Need for Regular weekly Joint Operations

Risk Factors:
• There are insufficient safety nets to support street people in communities they migrate to.
• The provision of too much material support on Streets, may entice people to migrate to the streets.
• A focus on rehabilitation at the expense of prevention in communities.
• Insufficient budget for sustainable programmes.

Successes:
• The Straatwerk upliftment program since implementation in mid-December has 30 participants in the program.
• The cumulative recruitment list assists in compiling a database of the clients
• The clients are open to the work opportunity
• The Program is an ongoing process that can assist to restore the dignity of our clients.

We ARE making a difference!   BE THE CHANGE
