About Katlo Development Centre
Katlo Development Centre with registration number (190-315NPO) based in Jericho village and Letlhabile township (Brits-North West Province: South Africa) is a community based organization wherewith members identified the need in poverty alleviation programmes, gender-based violence and health improvement services in April 2014. Members made observations and conducted informal interviews thus identifying a high number of unemployed youth and women in addition to the poverty conditions they daily face. They then came together in discussions over the need in 2016. So in April 2017 the members decided to register the organization with the Department of Social Development and started implementing the programmes.
The organization currently renders victim empowerment programmes, economic development initiatives and awareness campaigns under the auspices of the Department of Social Development (RSA) in addition to the group work services in terms of health issues rendered under the supervision of NACOSA.
