Take a look

Take a look at our new web-resource: The DGMT NGO Commons.  It is a sector resource where we bring together – into one central place – existing resources to guide civil society organisations through important processes of establishing legal and operating structures and systems.  We hope you find useful!

We have just published the 10th issue of our Hands-on Learning publication.  It features eight articles covering issues such as leadership development in South Africa, developing the early thinking skills of preschool children,  helping township tradesmen connect to business opportunities, giving second chances to learners that did not do well in their matric exams, evaluating a technology-driven reading for pleasure programme etc. Read them all here.
