The South African National NGO Coalition (SANGOCO) is a nonprofit organisation that promotes civil society, by uniting and strengthening the civil society sector, to enable it to influence development policy, and advocate for programmes that meet the needs of the poor in the best possible way, at the least cost.

South African society is characterised by inequality. At the birth of our new democracy in 1994, the government committed itself to redressing inequality and improving the lives of all people. This commitment requires a comprehensive economic, social, cultural and political process. We believe that government will not be able to implement effective reconstruction and development without strong, informed and effective Civil Service Organizations (CSOs). SANGOCO therefore commits itself to strengthening the sector, to improving the quality and impact of our services and delivery, and to contributing to a vibrant and dynamic society.
