Reach Your Funders – Share Your Stories

Take control of the way you market your NGO to funders - today.

For those of us who can't afford expensive advertising, marketing and communications services, there is a solution that promises to be equally rewarding. It's really simple - start sharing the amazing stories and best practice emerging from the work you're doing (we all know that NGOs do fantastic and meaningful work!).

One Face Behind the Translation of Software into African languages, Pheledi Mathibela - Surfing Sepedi

"If you want to know the real person, you must speak to them in their own language,” says Pheledi Mathibela, “Because when you are speaking someone's mother tongue you are speaking with their heart, much more than when you are speaking their second language.”

Broadband Infraco’s Financial Sustainability Threatened

Broadband Infraco, the company mandated to provide long-distance and international fibre-optic network, has warned that significant reduction in wholesale bandwidth prices as capacity grew could well jeopardise the financial sustainability of government parastatal.

In its annual report to Parliament last week, Broadband Infraco chairperson, Andrew Mthembu and CEO David Smith, said that wholesale bandwidth prices had come down by a substantial 73 percent during the 2009-10 financial period.

Seacom to Repair Faulty Data Cable

Seacom South Africa says its data cable needs to be lifted from the ocean bed to repair the fault on the repeater.
Seacom South Africa’s head of sales, Martin Sanne, points out that the company will require robotics to cut the cable, after which it will have to be repaired on board ship, re-attached and returned to the ocean floor.

Since last week, the fault has disrupted many users’ Internet operations. Meanwhile, clients of Internet service providers relying solely on Seacom have access only to internet services across Africa.

NGO Pulse: A Tool for Civil Society

A key finding of the 2007 ‘State of ICTs in the South African NGO Sector’ study was that the information and communication technology (ICT) investment of NGOs has been geared primarily towards the administrative running of organisations, rather than to achieving their goals and objectives. As a result, the great potential of ICTs to strengthen and support programmes remained largely untapped by the majority of NGOs.

The State of ICTs in the South African NGO Sector

By Arthur Goldstuck : Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have always been portrayed as operating on a shoestring budget, and being stuck in the dark ages of telecommunications.
