Call for Transparency Over Party Funding

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) says that a toxic blend of secret money and political influence is creating a ceremonial undermining of South Africa’s democracy.

ISS senior researcher, Judith February, argues that there is no way of know when the corporate and private world are investing in political parties for favours because the country does not regulate private funding of political parties. 

DBSA, EU Launch Infrastructure Fund

The Ambassador of the European Union to South Africa, Roeland van de Geer, and the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) chief executive officer, Patrick Dlamini, have launched the R1.5 billion ground breaking Infrastructure Investment Programme for South Africa (IIPSA).

The purpose of IIPSA is to provide grant funding in support of loans for essential infrastructure projects in the southern African region.

Child Rights NGOs in Dire Funding Crisis

Child Line and other organisations in the Northern Cape have remained silent after the recent rape of a six week-old baby, allegedly by a relative.

The organisations are also quiet after the murder of a one-year old boy, allegedly killed by his father.

However, Child Line's Naomi Edwards says they are in dire financial straits, adding that, “With the lack of financial resources NGOs [non-governmental organisations] are finding themselves in a very tight position.”

Gigaba Criticises Opposition Parties, NGOs

African National Congress (ANC) national executive committee member and Minister of Public Enterprises, Malusi Gigaba, has criticised opposition parties and non-governmental organisations for telling foreign countries that South Africa has failed since democracy.

Gigaba told the South African Democratic Teachers' Union (SADTU) that, "All around us, the opportunists, the pessimists, the opposition and the counter-revolutionists are telling us what we have achieved in the last 19 years has been nothing and this revolution faces its inevitable doom."

Childline On The Rocks

When families and communities fail children, the government is left with the job of caring for them. Often non-governemental organisations (NGOs), such as Childline, carry out this responsibility - but they are struggling to survive.
 
In Diepsloot, where the bodies of cousins Yonelisa Mali, two and Zandile Mali, three, were found in a public toilet this week - Childline could only field one social worker.
 
The cousins' bodies were found near the spot where Anelisa Mkhondo, five, was found dumped and murdered last month.
 

Hard Times Builds Character

Like it or not, hard times are good for you. The old truth that it builds character, is as valid today as it was years ago when our grandparents told us so. When I think back to the times when I was under pressure, to pass examinations, to submit reports on time, to make plans for the survival of Abraham Kriel Childcare, I experienced both pain and growth. I did not experience unhappiness.

Abraham Kriel Childcare is currently going through a tough period. The situation has forced us to look critically at what we do and how we do it.

Lotto Funding Crisis: Struggle to Hold NLB Accountable

The frustrations experienced by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) when applying for lotto funding came under spotlight when a group of NGOs marched to the National Lotteries Board (NLB) offices on 27 January 2012 in Pretoria.

The march highlighted NGOs’ concerns regarding the Lotto which are well-documented in a study undertaken by the Funding Practice Alliance, the class action to the Western Cape High Court and other related issues.
