What we do

CSO Linkages for Sustainability

A sustainable CSO is one that can continue to fulfil its mission over time and, in doing so, meets the needs of its key stakeholders – particularly its beneficiaries and supporters. As such, sustainability should be seen as an ongoing process, rather than an end in itself. It is a process that involves the interaction between different strategic, organisational, programmatic, social and financial elements.

  • Facilitating linkages for sustainability opportunity locally, provincially,  nationally and internationally
  • Assisting and facilitating CSOs access to identified funding and market opportunities
  • Facilitating creation of local, provincial and national networks for CSOs with common interests or goals.
