institution: DrA, NPA. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: moderate. Recurrent cost: moderate. Time line: within three years of adoption of policy. 22. National Treasury (NT) Policy measures requiring the attention of the above institution, as provided for in the CLAP, are collated below. Cross-refer to the number of the action step in the main text for a discussion of the background. (4) Poverty alleviation initiatives, including rollout of grants, should be targeted in child labour hot spots. This should not be interpreted as a criterion for access to the grants, but rather as how to target information campaigns and registration blitzes. Lead institution: DrSD (rollout of grants). Secondary institution: NT, NPA, DTI. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: minimal. Recurrent cost: minimal. Time line: within two years of adoption of policy. (13) The extension of the CSG to children up to the end of the school year in which they turn 15 years. The current age cut-off of 14 years does not align with the period of compulsory schooling and the prohibition on employment of children, both extending up to the end of the school year in which a child turns 15. If this is not done children of very poor families are likely to leave school at 14 to work for the family income, or to work while attending schooling, affecting schooling negatively. Lead institution: DSD. Secondary institution: NT. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Recurrent cost: Significant, while potentially funded from savings in terms of step (12). Time line: 2006. (14) In the medium term the extension of the CSG to those aged 16 and 17 years should be considered to encourage children to remain in school and to avoid children's engagement in hazardous work activities and other WFCL. This should follow an assessment of how effectively the CSG reaches the very poor. Lead institution: DSD. Secondary institution: NT. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Recurrent cost: Significant, while potentially funded to some extent from savings in terms of step (12). Time line: 2008.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
