1. Khanyile, Nomusa Hlengiwe Patience. Implementation of a developmental approach to social welfare service delivery at Nkandla in Kwazulu–Natal .

Degree: 2014, University of Zululand

The study focused on the implementation of a developmental approach to social welfare service delivery at Nkandla. It intended to establish whether or not existing service providers implement a developmental approach to community development initiatives with aim of developing and empowering individuals. It further looked at the extent to which local communities participate or do not participate in public affairs. The findings revealed that, the majority of people view the government departments’ system of governance as unresponsive to the societal needs. Lack of effective communication mechanisms between the officials and the communities appears to be the main factor. Communities are hardly consulted for planned initiatives as a result projects are just implemented not really looking at the felt needs. People at the grassroots level do not have knowledge on how government structures function. This makes it difficult for them to have meaningful and effective means of participation. All the undesirable effects outlined above, provide a sound and compelling basis for the strictly implementation of the developmental approach or the available policies for the benefit of the community at large. Lastly on the basis of this study, the critical recommendation was a need to change the mindset of government departments’ officials in order to involve communities more seriously. Advisors/Committee Members: Ntombela, N.H (advisor), Sithole, M.S (advisor).

2. Mpontshane, Nozipho Bethusile. The experiences of parents of children with disabilities .

Degree: 2017, University of Zululand

Parents of a child with a disability cope with greater demands than those living with a healthy child. The purpose of this qualitative study was to provide insights into the experiences of parents of children with disabilities. The research was located in the phenomenological framework. Seven parents who are residing within uThungulu District municipality and whose children were diagnosed with disability participated in the study. They were selected though purposive sampling. In-depth interviews were conducted with them to gain in-depth insights into their experiences. Content analysis was used to analyse data gathered through in-depth interviews and five themes emerged i.e. parents’ realisation of the child disability, reaction towards the realisation of the child’s disability, the essence of parenting a child with a disability, parents’ social support and the needs identified by parents. Findings of the study indicated that parents do not alter their parenting. On the contrary, they modify it to accommodate the children with disability. Secondly, it transpired in the study that several challenges are faced by parents in raising their children with disability. These challenges include, among others, lack of financial resources, finding a suitable school for their children with disability, care giving challenges, lack of suitable housing and transport allocated for children with disability. It also transpired that there are support structures within their communities despite there being no programs to support them. Advisors/Committee Members: Ntombela, N.H (advisor), Sithole, M.S (advisor).
