A report by CASE for National Development Agency (2008) on the State of Civil Society Organisations in South Africa state: as donor funding decreases, stringent requirements around reporting and financial management and the ability to meet those requirements become key factors that influence the sustainability of organisations. While this shift has had some positive outcomes, it has also threatened many smaller and often more grassroots organisations; in addition to having an impact on service delivery. Those organisations that are often closest to the communities and most able to meet community needs in an informal or ad hoc way are disadvantaged by stringent reporting and management requirements. It is these organisations that are the least well resourced in terms of budgets, staff and capacity.
Therefore Tikani Development Centre (Tikani) core business is to render services that enable community organisations to plan, implement and manage their programmes to the benefit of the larger society. The services range from building capacity of an organisation to assisting with project and financial management. In addition monitoring and evaluation of programmes/organisations is also offered for the betterment of service delivery.
Tikani has vast experience in the social development sector and public sector. The capacity of engagement ranges from working with organisations at a community level with minimum education to a well established organisation. The expertise embedded in the organisation include but not limited to mobilising community groups and develop programmes; training with the intention of building the capacity of an organisation.
