As part of the broader strategy to address service delivery and inequality among all people in South Africa, the Minister for Social Development, Ms Bathabile Dlamini will on Tuesday, 23 October 2012 visit Orange Farm in Gauteng to evaluate service delivery programmes and find ways to speed up delivery where needed.
Orange Farm has a high unemployment rate as a result of poverty, high rate of teenage pregnancies, alcohol abuse, child and youth headed households, school drop out and different forms of child abuse.

During Social Development Month the Department of Social Development visits areas that are poor and underdeveloped with the aim of engaging these communities to find solutions to their challenges, including livelihood and socio-economic problems.
