The NYDA calls for youth - led and youth – focus NPOs to submit solution oriented National Youth Service (NYS) Projects that address socioeconomic challenges faced by young people in communities. This call is to acknowledge the good work done by many youth organizations and mobilize more organizations to develop and initiate interventions that would involve young people in activities that benefit communities while developing critical skills needed for their participation in the economy. Each intervention/project should target 100 young people.
The National Development Agency (NDA) has noted with concern the misleading commentary made by the Director of Rise Up Against GBV, Ms Mandisa Khanyile, on an interview with Newzroom Afrika on 7 February 2021. Ms Khanyile made remarks that Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) who had applied for the CARA funding have not been paid and that the NDA’s report to the Social Development Portfolio Committee in Parliament about payment to these CSOs have been untrue.
The National Development Agency (NDA) is tasked with the responsibility of contributing towards the eradication of poverty in South Africa and its causes. The NDA in discharging its mandate, has to empower and enhance the capacity of the civil society sector. This ensures that the NDA helps to build more cohesive communities that are able to tackle the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.
NDA provincial offices provide services of registration, training, grant funding with various CSOs. These are CSOs who are participants in our development programme in one way or another.
Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life- Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela -
