The Summit is intended to engage non-governmental organisations (NGOs) on the implementation of EPWP, with an emphasis on working together to intensify the creation of work opportunities.

- To partner with private sector and other role players to ensure sustainability of the NSS
- To review the current NSS implementation model and to get views from other stakeholders on how best the model can be improved
EPWP Non-State Sector (NSS) was launched in 2009/10 with the aim of partnering with non-profit organisations to draw a significant number of the unemployed into productive work, thereby contributing to alleviation of unemployment and poverty among communities as per the EPWP mandate. In its fourth year, the NSS through its successful implementation has raised increasing interest from various forms of NPOs, business and organised labour.
The key stakeholders who will be attending the summit are: government departments, business, labour and civil society organisations with the aim of forging partnerships that will ensure sustainability of the Non-Profit Organisations participating in the Non-State Sector Programme.
The outcomes of the summit will assist the Department of Public Works to create and improve the Programme to achieve comprehensive support to civil society.
