SABC Living Land partnership showcases NDA poverty eradication programmes

Posted in Stories on 05 July 2019

The National Development Agency will, through a 13 part series partnership with the SABC, showcase best case studies of poverty eradication programmes funded over the years. More over, the projects will share challenges, survival and sustainability models that they have experienced.

Grant funding at the NDA is targeted at civil society organisations (CSO’s) to contribute towards the eradication of poverty and its causes.

The CSO Development framework guides NDA development practitioners to design specific development interventions, to ensure that the programmes reach their full potential, such as formalisation, capacity building and linkages with other stakeholders.
