This will be a major blow for many non-profits who received their funding from these sources. Already the PEPFAR fund (for HIV/Aids) has been phased out with devastating consequences for many NPOs. Research about CSI funding trends in 2017 also revealed a disturbing tendency by corporates to bypass NPOs with programme implementation due to lack of compliance and capacity!
In order to survive this reality, non-profits will be forced to reposition themselves as a matter of urgency!! If a climate of urgency does not permeate the corridors of each and every non-profit then there is a big problem!! It is extremely desperate and difficult times!!
All this is on top of a deepening funding, and at a deeper level, a leadership crisis, with its roots post 1994. Even non-profits who were well funded and highly professional are now feeling the pinch. The shift towards right wing administrations in Europe coupled with the deepening global economic crisis (caused by greedy bankers bailed out with taxpayer money) are exacerbating an already precarious situation.

Some comments from previous participants:
“Elbert Hubbard wrote: ‘Art is the beautiful way of doing anything.’ Frank Julie’s seminars are ‘Art’ for that very reason. I found his content stimulating and intensely practical – a by-product of his own successful, ‘hands-on’ background. As a fellow trainer, I applaud his easy, ‘nobody-gets-hurt’, fully participatory presentation. Visibly – Frank is driven by his love for people, which accounts for his passion to share his wealth of knowledge and empirical experience – a task he achieves for his happy participants with measurable effect. - Len Stevens, Author/Presenter, the “ãGRID Training Method
“Frank is a rare phenomenon! He is selfless and magnanimous in sharing his experiences and learning to transform our society and our world. I’ve read his book carefully. But the learnings were cemented by his dynamic, energetic, passionate presentation! With Love, Honour and Respect for the work you do Frank. – Faiza Leith, Director: Schools Education and Environmental Project
