The Southern African NGO Network (SANGONeT), in partnership with the South African National NGO Coalition (SANGOCO), invites you to the official launch of the Tipfuxeni Project, on 23 September 2014 in Johannesburg.
Tipfuxeni is a two-year online capacity building project aimed at South African non-governmental organisations (NGOs). One of the components of the Tipfuxeni Project is an interactive web platform (the Tipfuxeni Portal), which provides a platform for NGOs, especially those that have not benefited from any information and communication technology (ICT) projects before, take advantage of ICTs to raise awareness about their work, share best practices, access information on NGO opportunities, among others.
SANGOCO and SANGONeT will increase the number of participating NGOs in the second phase to ensure that the Project is sustained beyond two years. The sustainability of the Tipfuxeni Project is key because while NGOs deliver development projects in the communities, they do not have the means to communicate the impact of their programmes to the communities, donors and other stakeholders.
Participating NGOs - 135 – are trained on various ICT tools and other skills, including the use of a content management system, social media, writing proposals, etc. NGOs will also have the opportunity to share their good stories through ICTs. This will not only benefit these organisations in terms of publicity or engaging their beneficiaries but will it will also be a way of acknowledging the contribution that funders make into their projects.
Time: 18h00 - 20h30
Guest Speaker: Mr Buti Manamela, Deputy Minister: Monitoring and Evaluation, The Presidency
Enquiries: David Makhafola, Tel: 011 403 4935, Email: email@example.com
