Social Facilitation for ASIDI Free State: Pre-Implementation Phase

Our Social Facilitation engagement in the Department of Basic Education's Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Initiative(ASIDI) in the Free State province includes three schools in the Xhariep Education District. The names of the three schools are:
- PT Sanders Intermediate School in Trompsburg, Kopanong Local Municipality
- Diamanthoogte Combined School in Koffiefontein, Letsemeng Local Municipality, and
- Luckhoff Combined School in Luckhoff, also in the Letsemeng Local Municipality.

Interested and affected parties were identified, local community representative structures were engaged and the community stakeholder steering committees were established in each of the three project sites. The process to source potential Community Liaison Officers (CLO's) is currently in progress. Appointments of CLO's will hopefully be finalized in the month of April 2013.

The Independent Development Trust (IDT) is the Implementing Agent for the Department of Basic Education (DBE). Crane Registered Quantity Surveyor are the appointed Programme Managers. The building contractors for the construction of the schools are yet to be announced.
