About this grant
The National Alliance for the Development of Community Advice Offices is committed to the development and long-term sustainability of community-based advice offices in South Africa. Initially a project of the Black Sash Trust, the grantee was established in 2005 by human rights organizations in response to the limited prospects for the long-term sustainability of community-based advice offices in South Africa. Since 2008, the grantee has been supporting the emergence of a representative voice for community-based advice offices by supporting provincial forums that represent their interests in the country’s nine provinces. Past support assisted with the establishment of the Association of Community-based Advice Offices of South Africa, whose aim is to bring together all community-based advice offices into one national association that will be the voice of this sector. This grant will enable the grantee to assist the association to register as an independent entity, develop its administrative capacity, and develop and manage program and operational plans.
