In recent years, there has been a sudden and drastic fall in donor funding for NGOs in developing countries despite the major role they play in supporting governments to reach marginalized communities. This was caused by globalization which made all countries to compete for business and limited natural resources. This in turn created more problems of climate change, business viability, economic recession and political instability. Major Powers which were the main donors for NGOs shifted their focus to domestic support leaving NGOs in developing countries with limited funding. NGO funding now flows through government structures of developing countries, who, due to rampant corruption and red-tape, funding will not fully benefit the targeted communities. It is on this background that this NGO Summit was built to bring together experts in research, management, development work, fundraising and social enterprises to share their findings, knowledge, experiences and cases-studies on how NGOs can be financially sustainable under these harsh local and global funding environments so as to continue serving their purpose in society.
NGO Donors, Financial Providers and Support Organization are also invited to exhibit their grants, funding and services they offer to NGOs.
This segment will come on the last day of the workshop for Peer Networking and Donor Exhibitions where delegates will engage donors one-on-one & get advice to access grants.
