About this grant

Founded in 1995, the Eastern Cape NGO Coalition is a network of more than 360 nongovernmental, community-based organizations. It has provided its members with services, technical assistance, and capacity building opportunities and helped them more effectively implement programs to meet diverse economic development, social service, and health needs of the province’s marginalized populations. The grantee is the most developed among South Africa’s nine provincial coalitions. This grant will enable the coalition to continue its research and policy work; technical assistance; capacity building; and networking and information sharing.
