The Department of Social Development in the Western Cape will fund fewer NGOs in the coming financial year.  This was announced by MEC Ivan Meyer.

Meyer says one-thousand-eight-hundred NGOs and NPOs have been audited to determine which of them have provided the best quality service to people in the province.

"Given that our current economic circumstances force us to do more with less, this government intends to empower the best NGO and NPO bodies to further improve and expand their services to the people of this province," says Meyer.
