#Storymakers2016 Africa Tweet-Chat - Share Your Storytelling Experiences on 4 May 2016

Storytelling is increasingly relevant to the strategic communication and awareness-raising activities of nonprofit organisations (NPOs) in Africa.
 
Stories help people to better remember specific experiences. Stories shape our identities. With a great story, you can ensure that donors and supporters understand your work.
 
But how does your nonprofit tell its story? When you upload a video, a photo, or a blog post about your work, whom are you trying to reach with it? What do you expect the audience to do after they see or read the story?
 

Few Benefit from South Africa’s Empowerment Policies

A report published by the Institute of Race Relations (IRR) today notes that very few South Africans benefit from current empowerment polices.

By Mike Laws of InTarget

New NGO Pulse Service: Website Development and Hosting for NGOs

NPOs should have websites through which they raise awareness about their work to the donors, beneficiaries and other relevant stakeholders. SANGONeT - while updating the Prodder NGO Directory – discovered that most South African NPOs do not own a website. While NPOs continue to work towards improving people’s lives for the better, their absence in the online space means that their ability to raise awareness about their work remains limited.
