Town­ship En­trepreneur­ship Awards are an ini­tia­tive by the Gaut­eng Depart­ment of Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment to cel­e­brate, recog­nise and re­ward en­trepreneurial tal­ent in the town­ships whilst sup­port­ing the prov­inces’ goal and com­mit­ment to re­vi­tal­is­ing the town­ship econ­omy.

The Stoel­bag Foun­da­tion is based in Or­lando West in Soweto and has so far man­aged to cre­ate em­ploy­ment for about eight peo­ple. Gaut­eng Premier David Makhura said the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment has spent about R20 bil­lion buy­ing goods and ser­vices from town­ship busi­nesses in the past five years, in an ef­fort to sup­port them. He

added that the pri­vate sec­tor com­pa­nies re­ceiv­ing busi­ness from gov­ern­ment must do their part in procur­ing ser­vices from town­ship com­pa­nies.

In­no­va­tive idea helps cir­cum­cised pa­tients heal.
