Guide to Urban Development NGOs in South Africa

Sustainable Human Settlements and Integrated Urban Development

Most South African urban development NGOs have their roots in this country's anti-apartheid struggle when urban townships represented the battlefields of the physical resistance against the apartheid regime.

In many instances these struggles were organized around rent boycotts and a refusal to pay for (inadequate) basic services in an effort to pressure the apartheid regime to transform its oppressive policies.

CSR Survey of SA Companies

The South Africa Foundation is an association of South Africa’s largest corporations and major multinational companies with a significant presence in South Africa. The foundation recently commissioned a report entitled: Business In Change: Corporate Citizenship in South Africa - Making Business Work for the Poor. Published in June 2004 and available online at no charge, this document contains a wealth of statistical information based on the findings from a survey of participating members from the South Africa Foundation.

Donor-NGO Relations Within the Context of Corporate Social Investment

Sustainability in its simplest form means to support and/or keep in existence. Most discussions around sustainability in the sector are focussed on the financial support or, more accurately, the lack of it. Alternatively, financial sustainability is expected to develop through the design of self-generating income by the non-profits, rather than donor funds.

Ten Years into Democracy: Examining the Impact of Globalisation on Development Funding for SA NGOs

Extract from the Paper

Critics on the left and the right, on the inside and the outside of the government hold globalisation responsible for the stubborn prevalence of poverty and inequality in South Africa (SA), albeit with differing accents. This finger is not pointed without merit. For while globalization may be described as a mere process (Tomlinson, 1997), as opposed to a grand moment in the evolution of world history, it is precisely its insidious and artfully benign character that positions it as a force to be reckoned with.
