Social development programmes play a key role in providing social economic upliftment in an area. The MMID liaises with local NGOs and the City’s Department of Social Development (DSD) to, where possible:
- Monitor and record homeless people living in the area.
- Help reduce and control vagrancy in the area and facilitate the rehabilitation of vagrants where possible.
- Provide work opportunities for homeless and unemployed people.
- Provide skills development opportunities.
