Question and answer
Why should teenage parents not be given money as child grant?
Organisations working with women and children say teenage mothers are using state child grants to buy alcohol and clothing, often placing the burden of caring for their children on grandparents when the money runs out. [ Approximately 8,5 million children benefit from the Child Support Grant (CSG) of R210 per child per month, according to the social development department. Nomsa Ntlabati, a counselor at Ilitha Labantu, an NGO focusing on violence against women and children, said there had been a “dramatic” increase in young mothers misusing the child support grant (CSG), sometimes known as
“womb fee” in the townships. Ntlabati said the phenomenon was driven by poverty and because the mothers wanted a “good life”. She said it was mainly grandparents who ended up having to carry the burden of caring for their grandchildren. About 35-40 incidents were reported by elderly women every month at Ilitha, which is situated in Gugulethu. Ntlabati said “lazy” young mothers often went on drinking sprees, bought clothing and gambled with the money. ]
