The TechSoup Global Network grew tremendously over the past years. It includes 35 capacity-building NGO partners (including SANGONeT, a founding partner since 2006) serving 36 countries in North America, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. We launched new partnerships in Czech Republic, Egypt, Italy, Israel, and Sweden and added the product donation programme in Singapore as of September 2011.
CAF Southern Africa is committed to strengthening the work of civil society in the region. It campaigns for increased giving and social investment for the sector. CAF promotes more developmental approaches to corporate social investment, encourages and administers employee community involvement programmes and works towards the establishment of a culture of indigenous philanthropy that benefits organisations of civil society.
There is a looming crisis in the civil society sector in South Africa, and if nothing is done urgently, we might see key organisations in the sector suffer catastrophic consequences over in the next year if not earlier.
