About this grant

The Southern African NGO Network is a one-stop Internet information resource for nonprofits in South Africa. Through its services, programs, and products, it supports the effective use of information technology within the country’s civil society sector. During the previous grant period, the network developed and upgraded an information portal; expanded PRODDER, an online directory of nonprofits; and helped build nonprofit institutional capacity through research, conferences, workshops, e-news, and technical publications. This grant will support the ongoing improvement of the portal, expand its outreach to new nonprofits, and monitor and evaluate the use and effectiveness of the portal. Also, the network will shift the focus of the portal so it becomes more of a platform for the nonprofit sector.
