The core focus of local government should be delivering frontline services, yet the challenges they face go beyond income generation and corporate strategy. Each municipality has its own unique requirements that demand a tailormade response in order to achieve maximum social value and community resilience. Working closely with local government clients to understand their key community drivers, Afroteq develops holistic and achievable plans that provide the right solutions both for the organisation and the communities they serve.
