Accessing Social Grants to Meet Orphan Children School Needs: Namibia and South Africa Perspective
Taukeni, Simon; Matshidiso, Taole
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
In this comparative paper we interrogate the access of social grants to meet orphan children school needs in Namibia and South Africa. We noted that the two governments are committed to provide orphan children with social grants to enable them to meet the school needs. However, accessing social grant to benefit most vulnerable orphan children raised many questions than answers in the recent times. We reviewed published and unpublished documents to examine the access of social grant to orphan children in both Namibia and South Africa. We discuss how orphan children access the social grants and the challenges facing them and their caregivers to meet their school needs such as paying school fees. [For complete volume, see ED567118.]
