It also manages and administers grants and allowances to categories of people vulnerable to poverty and in need of state support to improve their standard of living.

Consequently, the government takes reasonable legislative and other measures within its available resources to achieve a progressive realisation of this individual right. It’s also worth noting that SASSA is administered by the SASSA Act of 2004.
