||The South African National NGO Coalition (SANGOCO), in partnership with the Southern African NGO Network (SANGONeT), invites you to the National NPO Summit on Service Delivery, taking place from 24-26 April 2014 in Mahikeng, North West.
The venue will be announced in due cause.
Hosted under the theme ‘Making Service Delivery Work for the People’, the summit takes place amid increasing service delivery protests across the country. The NGO sector plays a critical role in the delivery of services, especially in areas where government does not have the capacity to do so. Since the dawn of democracy, there is a growing need for the sector to continue partnering with government and donors (including individual philanthropists) to implement developmental interventions that translate into improving people’s lives.
This event also provides an opportunity for the NPO sector to make a contribution to Service Delivery Mechanism. The National NPO Summit on Service Delivery is therefore, part of a groundbreaking effort to address the increasing service delivery protests together with the emerging community needs. The summit will also create an opportunity for the NPO sector to form new partnerships with various spheres of government on one hand. On the other hand, it will also enable various role players in the development space to strengthen existing partnerships and also share the best practices with the view to accelerate services delivery going forward.
The event will bring together 1 000 delegates from various NPOs in South Africa, thought leaders, activists, researchers and government leaders. The summit discussions and sessions will be geared towards finding sustainable solutions to South Africa’s service delivery challenges.
This premier event for NPOs is hosted with the support of the Office of the Premier in the North West.
SANGOCO and SANGONeT have designed an innovative programme in consultation with other stakeholders. We are confident that the summit will also provide a common platform for all participants to share experiences and discuss strategies of ensuring that the country becomes effective in delivering the services to the people - something that will go a long way in improving their livelihoods.
