Lack of Funding Threat to NGOs - Ntuli

The Department of Social Development says that there are 85 000 registered NGOs on its database, with 18 000 organisations added annually

The Department of Social Development says that there are 85 000 registered non-governmental organisations (NGOs) on its database, with 18 000 organisations added annually.

Speaking at the National Lotteries Board Indaba and Inaugural Awards in Johannesburg, the department’s deputy minister, Bongi Maria Ntuli, pointed out that during the Nonprofit Organisation Summit, which was held by the department in 2012, it became clear that all the NGOs – who continue to provide services to the communities, operate under the environment characterised by lack of funds.

Ntuli, who described Lotto funding as a ‘lifeline’, urged the Minister of Trade and Industry, Rob Davies, to channel Lotto funds to organisations to ensure that beneficiaries’ lives improve for the better.
