Canadian NGOs Providing Resources for Development and Social Justice in South Africa: A Handbook. Working Paper Number 19.
Micou, Ann McKinstry
This publication is a handbook of Canadian nongovernmental, nonprofit organizations (NGOs) working for change and the establishment of democracy in South Africa. It is offered as a companion to an earlier handbook on similar European NGOs. In particular, this publication illuminates the framework in which NGOs operate; clarifies appropriate sources of financial, technical, and informational assistance for sustainable development programs; and draws lessons from the development aid and education policies described. The handbook was developed during one week through a series of interviews in Canada of 25 organizations (or individuals) identified as relevant to the preparation of the handbook. An introduction and overview are followed by sections describing organizations, programs and agencies under the categories: (1) Canadian government corporations; (2) NGO networks and coalitions; (3) crown corporations; (4) nongovernmental institutions; (5) development (and development education) agencies; (6) trade union-related organizations; (7) church agencies; (8) support organizations raising money for South African causes; (9) solidarity groups; and (10) research, information, and documentation centers. A subject index and a glossary of abbreviations are included. (JB)
