NGOs urged to embrace social enterprise

Council for Non-governmental Organisations (CONGOMA) has tipped non-governmental organisations in the country to explore social enterprise initiatives as a resource mobilisation strategy to achieve financial sustainability.

Ronald Mtonga, CONGOMA’s Executive Director, said in Blantyre that most NGOs are struggling due to dwindling donor support as a result of the global economic crisis.

“Nowadays grants are scarce so we want all NGOs to start embracing social enterprise as a way of resourcing themselves so that they should survive this difficult time,” Mtonga said during a consultative meeting with Southern Region-based non-governmental organizations.

Mandinda Zulu, Director of CADECOM in Blantyre, echoed Mtonga’s sentiments, noting that several NGOs such as CRECCOM, Family Health Services, and NASFAM have successfully adopted social enterprise models to sustain their operations.

With over 1700 member NGOs, CONGOMA aims to promote this approach among its members.
