SAIBA, SAIT and the DSD recently launched a volunteer project to help NPOs get compliant with their financial reports and tax returns. An estimated 80 000 NPOs are non compliant and will be able to benefit from the www.npoassist.co.za volunteer project. Our first pilot projects was hosted in Hammanskraal, Beaufort-West and Plettenbergbay.
During Minister Dlamini’s Social Development Budget Vote speech tabled in Parliament on 4 May 2016, the importance of strengthening partnerships with civil society organisations were once again highlighted. “The NPO Act will be amended this year to ensure that NPOs are better placed to deliver services without any obstacles to the almost 17 million South Africans that depend on social assistance programmes. The NDA and Provincial Departments in collaboration with the private sector, will embark on intensive capacity building and mentoring for NPOs,” says Minister Dlamini.
Here is some photos of the outreach. If you would like to join the initiative then register at www.npoassist.co.za.
