Sustainability in its simplest form means to support and/or keep in existence. Most discussions around sustainability in the sector are focussed on the financial support or, more accurately, the lack of it. Alternatively, financial sustainability is expected to develop through the design of self-generating income by the non-profits, rather than donor funds.
Extract from the Paper
Critics on the left and the right, on the inside and the outside of the government hold globalisation responsible for the stubborn prevalence of poverty and inequality in South Africa (SA), albeit with differing accents. This finger is not pointed without merit. For while globalization may be described as a mere process (Tomlinson, 1997), as opposed to a grand moment in the evolution of world history, it is precisely its insidious and artfully benign character that positions it as a force to be reckoned with.
