ADVISORY CENTRES

The National Development Agency (NDA) has set up Advisory Centres for communities through the provincial offices and two other locations within the provinces. The Advisory Centres are walk-in places where trained personnel provide information, counseling support, guidance, and referral services to members of the public, including women and youth. Trained personnel at Advisory Centres will also assist stakeholders with ideas on business plan development, access to finance, cooperative support as well as on how to use a computer (technology support).

These centres make computers available for stakeholders to access internet information. They will also serve as resource centres where users can have access to reference materials such as books and journals. They are places where networking can also take place.
Providing advisory services enhances the relevance and profile of the NDA. The NDA aims to be seen not only as a grant making organisation but as a resource that caters for the needs of communities and responds to the needs of individuals and organisations that do not have access to resources.
