What is Jozi@Work?

Jozi@Work is a new co-production programme by the City of Johannesburg. It was launched on the 30th of September 2014 in Eldorado Park, south of Johannesburg. Jozi@Work is a programme with work packages valued at just over R1 billion. The programme is designed to create an opportunity for communities to partner with the City in the delivery of municipal services in their own neighbourhoods. It is also aimed at shifting mind-sets by turning job seekers into job creators.This is in a bid to aid socio-economic transformation that will reduce poverty, inequality and unemployment in the seven regions across the City.

Jozi@Work is a “hand up “ and not a “hand out” initiative.
