About this grant

The Southern African NGO Network provides information and communication technology products and services to civil society organizations in South Africa. It supports the effective use of information communication technologies for social change. The portal is a platform used by civil society organizations to access information, share knowledge, and network with other like-minded organizations. Past support enabled the grantee to provide a platform for debate, commentary, and analysis of topical issues in South Africa; and to produce a development directory known as Prodder. This grant will support the grantee to create online support for nonprofits, produce a print version of Prodder, and continue to explore various opportunities and interventions to enhance the information communication technology capabilities of nonprofits in the country. It will continue to evaluate the portal to ensure that the services provided respond to the needs of nonprofits in the country.
