The GIBS/ Tshikululu Dialogue Series in collaboration with the J&J Development Projects Trust hosts a dialogue on the following topic:“Powerful Actions – Where should the South African NGO sector focus its energy?”

A robust, independent and effective civil society is a fundamental building block for a truly free, fair and transparent democracy. Our victory over the repression of apartheid was won through the efforts of a loose group of organisations that helped change systems and place apartheid under pressure.

But do our non-profit organisations still hold this position locally and globally; do they still have the ear of governments across the world? The perception is that money is wasted, high salaries are being paid and inconceivable processes plague the operations of non-profit organisations.

So, what should our non-profit organisations do for a future of self-sustainability, shared value and social entrepreneurship?

Join Jay Naidoo (J&J Development Projects Trust), Mark Heywood (Section 27) and Danny Sriskandarajah (CIVICUS) for an enlightening discussion on the role that the NGO sector should play in South Africa’s development.
