The objectives of the survey were to:

  • Establish the effectiveness of South African NGOs with regard to information communication technology (ICT) usage;
  • Reflect on how NGOs are using ICT in unique ways within development initiatives;
  • Establish whether ICT helps NGOs to make a positive difference in serving their constituencies;
  • Determine if NGOs are being properly served by the ICT industry;
  • Highlight the ICT resources NGOs currently have, and see how they use such resources;
  • Review the expectations NGOs have of these resources and what benefits they might gain from such resources. 

World Wide Worx interviewed decision-makers at 800 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) spread across the country, representing organisations of all sizes and interest groups.

The 80-page survey report, compiled by Arthur Goldstuck and Steven Ambrose, highlights various interesting technology trends in the South African NGO sector.
