Abstract

The overall aim of this study was to research and evaluate the social and economic impact of implementing the Development Caravan (DC) programme in the lives of families involved across two pilot sites in Fetakgomo and Limpopo by applying, inter alia, a participatory research approach. The entire DC programme entails: the recruitment and selection of Social Auxillary Workers (SAWs); the training of the SAWs; institutional linkages for implementation; and service delivery to the families in the two pilot sites
