Financing Social Development in South Africa: A Case of Rural-Based NGOS in The Health Sector
AbstractThe objective of this article is to assess the funding strategy of the government in relation to the sustainability of the work of NGOs in South Africa. This was achieved through analysing the guiding principles of the government in terms of disbursing funds and how this affects NGO operations. The article is based on a qualitative case study research design while employing the historical approach. Findings indicate that funding is shrinking and also that rural-based NGOs fail to meet complex funding requirements and some have downsized while others are closing. The study recommends that the government must streamline funding requirements to reach out to the rural-based NGOs.
