In March 2013 the community of Gong-Gong held a public meeting and elected a body of representatives to deal with their affairs on behalf of the greater community.
This body was informerly known as The Gong-Gong Community Development Committee, but was later formerly registered as The Griqua People’s Heritage NPC (GPH NPC) on 8 April 2016. The establishment of the GPH NPC is in direct response to the Political, Social and Economic neglect experienced by the Apartheid Regime, and also the successive government since 1994 and the dawn of democracy.
Is to design and implement programmes and services that improves access to opportunity and life changing services to our community – now and for future generations.
The GPH NPC is to be a conduit for the Gong-Gong community to:
– Advocate social, economic and educational development
– Develop partnerships between the community and the broader civil society
– The GPH NPC is open and accessible to every community member and encourages involvement to foster awareness of the resident’s position in society
