NGOs Urged to Use Lotto Funding to Create Jobs

The NLB urges NGOs to create jobs with the grants it awards to them

The National Lotteries Board (NLB) has urged non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to create jobs with the grants it awards to them.

Speaking at the National Lotteries Board Indaba and Inaugural Awards in Johannesburg, NLB chairperson, Prof. Alfred Nevhutanda, warned the beneficiaries to be transparent and accountable to avoid getting into trouble with the law.

Nevhutanda stated the need for the NLB to measure the impact of the funds it distributes to NGOs, adding that government, through the Lotteries Act Amendment Bill, aims to relax clauses that make the application process very difficult, especially for the newly-established organisations.
