NGOs’ Future Under Threat Since End of Apartheid

Shelagh Gastrow, head of Inyathelo, believes that NGOs are facing the most serious threat to their existence since the apartheid government tried to close them down

Shelagh Gastrow, an outspoken champion of the nonprofit sector in South Africa and executive director of Inyathelo - The South African Institute for Advancement, believes that NGOs are facing the most serious threat to their existence since the apartheid government tried to close them down.

Gastrow believes that this threat is in the form of proposed legislation driven by the Department of Social Development, which says it is necessary to provide advice and training to smaller NGOs.

As Gastrow points out, this is already the aim of the existing law, adding that the problem is that the nonprofit organisation (NPO) directorate, which the proposed new law will replace, lacks resources and skills and is incompetent.
