FPA Report Slams NLB and NDA

The Funding Practice Alliance criticises the National Lottery Board and the National Development Agency for failing in their mandates

The Funding Practice Alliance (FPA) has criticised the National Lottery Board (NLB) and the National Development Agency (NDA), two statutory bodies tasked with distributing funds to poverty-relief organisations and charities, for failing in their mandates.

In a report titled ‘Meeting their Mandates?’, the Alliance finds that the NDA, established to eradicate poverty by granting funds to CSOs, has been unable to disburse funds adequately, and its funding practices cannot be described as developmental.

The report further finds that apart from lacking transparency and accountability, the NDA, which report to Parliament under the Minister of Social Development, disbursed only 56 percent of available funds between 2003 and 2008.
