Today I attended the Sangonet presentation at Diakonia Centre (Durban). It was so great to meet all the people who make this all happen. I met the people who have helped the trust I direct, with the latest software at incredibly affordable prices. This is something invaluable to myself, and so many other under resourced NPO's. I also me the people, who when I have an issue, allow me to blog, publish my opinions, and are also available to me, when I need a sound opinion, on an issue, I am dealing with, in my capacity as Director. We were also told about the new Guide Star System, which is going to be introduced here, and which is going to be an amazing resource for the NGO Community.
In the NGO Sector we have a lot of challenges to deal with. I want to thank Sangonet for their incredible work to help us function, at the highest possible level. They are making a real and significant contribution, and I know that myself and the trust I am Director of, would be no where near where we are, were it not for their ongoing support and assistance. It was an enormous pleasure to enguage with them in person, and I hope that this is the first of many workshops, that they will hold in Durban.
