WCG Game Changers

"I am pleased to present our Game Changers and provide progress updates on each of them. The Game Changers are bold, focused and innovative interventions that are impacting people’s lives and catalysing change. Three of them are focused on providing opportunities for our young people so that they can succeed in a 21st century society and economy. All of them are focused on creating a more prosperous, socially inclusive province. We are already seeing successes under all our Game Changers due to the hard work of the Delivery Support Unit, provincial department teams and a number of partners in the public and private sector."

Premier Helen Zille
