Migrants and Remittances in Cape Town

The Scalabrini Centre of Cape Town (SCCT) would like to thank the Cape Town based consultancy company Eighty20 for their assistance in formulating a related survey, upon which some of the focus group discussion questions were based. We would also like to thank all focus group participants for their time, openness and generosity in sharing their individual experiences and personal stories.

This report aims to build a better understanding of SCCT’s clients’ experiences of remitting, including the challenges and obstacles involved. The work was meant to strengthen SCCT’s own programmes, highlight opportunities for advocacy, and point the way towards potential solutions to overcoming the barriers faced by SCCT clients in remitting.
