South African NPO’s have been finding it more and more difficult to access funding, both national and international, over the past few years.  The reasons for this are many, however, for these organisations to survive, and their survival is essential for millions of people that live in South Africa who are poverty stricken or have been cut down in their prime by disease, sourcing essential funding is a matter of life or death.

The Coalition of Anglican Children’s Homes (COACH) is conducting a three day workshop in Gauteng entitled Survival, Strategy and Sustainability: South African NPO’s in 2012.  The workshop which takes place from 3 – 5 July, features a carefully chosen faculty of speakers: experts in the field of justice, fundraising, advocacy, good governance and technology, and has been billed as the one workshop which simply should not be missed for any NPO’s experiencing difficulties in the current economic climate.

One of the keynote speakers for the workshop is Egon Oswald, who in 2011 was voted as Human Rights Attorney of the year by the Cape law society.  Oswald was the first South African lawyer to successfully prosecute a claim against the state of South Africa in the United Nations.  The claim, which arose out of the mass torture of 234 prisoners at the St Albans Maximum Correctional Facility in Port Elizabeth, resulted in the murder of a warder by a prisoner.  

Oswald continues to fight for the rights of South Africans, and his experience as a human rights lawyer has convinced him that the legal profession has a vital role to play in both prevention and control of the abuse of power, as well as the maintenance of a constitutional democracy in South Africa.  His passion is about using the Justice system to hold State Officials and Institutions accountable when they abuse their powers, and he believes that NPO’S should not underestimate the importance of “Impact litigation“ as an Advocacy tool.

The workshop offers NPO’s an exceptional opportunity to meet with leaders in various fields, to access their skills and to utilise this advice in their way forward, funded and secure that they are able to continue the vital work they undertake in South Africa today.  

Registrations for the workshop are currently being accepted and more information is available from sandhira@coach, or by calling Sandhira on 011 6164015/6/7 or by logging onto the COACH website at where you can download the workshop brochure and complete an online registration document.  The price for the three day workshop is R3450.00 per delegate.
