About this grant

The South African NGO Network supports the use of information communication technologies by civil society for social change. It provides the nonprofit sector with a platform to access, communicate, and disseminate information that is relevant to the sector. Past support enabled the grantee to train nonprofit organizations on social media tools, participate in focus group discussions, and upgrade its portal to a platform that allows nonprofits to upload information. This grant will support the grantee to continue providing information communication technology products and services to the nonprofit sector. Additionally, the grantee will grow the number of nonprofit organizations with access to information communication technologies, generate more content for the portal and other communication tools, and strengthen its income-generating efforts.
