Young Sports Leaders Encourage their Community to Get Moving!

Confident young sports leaders in Mbekweni, in the Western Cape, put their communication skills into practice by embarking on a four-day door-to-door campaign to increase community involvement at the Mbekweni Community Sport Centre, as part of an outreach campaign by sport and development organisation, SCORE.

Seventeen year old Sisanda Masila from Ihlumelo High School was joined by other sports leaders in Mbekweni, near Paarl, to talk to residents about the benefits of using the facility.

Going the Extra Mile to Recognise Sport

South Africa is facing many development challenges. To make things worse, many development organisations are experiencing serious financial and other constraints at the moment. Philanthropist, David Barnard, is actively responding to this situation by competing in one of the world’s toughest races, the Sahara Race 2011, to raise money and awareness for NGOs at the forefront of development and community work in South Africa.

Funding Paralysis

I have just come up with a new phrase – ‘fundraising paralysis’.

Lotto Sponsors Concerts While Charities Suffer

The National Lottery distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) has sponsored millions of rands to small sporting organisations and concerts while charities struggle to get funding.

SA to Launch Its Own Development Aid Agency

South Africa will launch its own development aid agency in 2011 in a move likely to boost the country's status as an emerging economic power and champion of the African continent.

The South African Development Partnership Agency is expected to become operational before mid-2011 and will work with other donor agencies to coordinate development programmes, mainly on the continent.

Fundraisers Are As Scarce As Hen’s Teeth

Recruiting the right person for a top post as a fundraising manager or development director is challenging. Only a handful of fundraisers with the right level of abilities and experience to raise multiple millions exist in South Africa. There’s a perception that this is a local problem but in fact it is a global crisis!
