1(a) The R1 million is allocated for the awareness material, to be distributed to all our 412 offices based in all provinces, on the fight against Gender Based Violence. R800 000 of the budget will be used for promotional materials, namely posters, pamphlets, banners and booklets. R200 000 for transport by participants for awareness sessions/workshops, hiring of venues and accommodation for participants and facilitators.
b(i) For Kwazulu Natal seminar, the Department spent R12 700 (This excludes the transport cost to transport officials to the event since they were using DHA vehicles) and for Eastern Cape the Department spent R69 000 (excluding transport amount).
(ii) The virtual Disability Forum Workshop costs were those for data.
(iii) The intended interventions are going to be hosted on virtual platform and therefore the cost will only be for data, therefore the expected cost will be around R5000.
2. Yes, the agendas and copies of presentations.
