With the 2007 opening of parliament, President Thabo Mbeki made the following statement: “All South Africans need to work together in striving for freedom of poverty and moral decay.” In response to this a national newspaper, “The Burger”, and the Business School of the University of Stellenbosch held an one day conference with the theme, “Social Cohesion.” SCEP did a presentation and was identified by the conference organizers as a community development project that can make a positive and practical contribution to Social Cohesion in South Africa.
At Agri Klein Karoo Region Conference in Oudtshoorn, SCEP was designated to be the most successful Upliftment Initiative in the region for 2010/2011.
