The South African Youth Council (SAYC) says for the National Lottery Board (NLB) to be developmental, it needs to align its work to South Africa’s national agenda.
Delivering a message of support to the NLB Indaba and Inaugural Awards in Johannesburg, SAYC president, Thulani Tshefuta, whose organisation is the umbrella body of all the youth formations in the country, has described the civil society sector as an economy that creates opportunities for the people.
Tshefuta says that the amended Lotteries Act should take into consideration the organisations that deliver services to the communities, while not side-lining those that provide capacity to these organisations.
He also criticised organisations that position themselves as beneficiaries when they are ‘just’ consultants.
