FAQ

Where does Tsogang work?
 
Tsogang works in the Northern and Eastern Provinces of South Africa, namely
  • Limpopo, 
  • Mpumalanga and 
  • KZN. 
We plan to expand North of our border and into the rest of South Africa.
 
Why are NGO’s always begging for money?
NGO’s work with the poor and voiceless. We act as agents of change to help people in informal settlements, poor rural villages, dispossessed householders etc. We try to help working with government to help people who have not been rendered. NGO’s try to help the poorest, so we continually try to gather funds to develop communities. 
 
How does Tsogang work?
Tsogang works with 
  • Individuals
  • Traditional Authorities and 
  • Local Municipalities. 
We identify rural individuals and communities who need help. We do not discriminate, we lead the cry for help.
 
How do we select projects/programmes?
When a community or individual approaches Tsogang, we request a meeting with the group and community to establish the needs of the community. We then carry out a Participatory Rural Appraisal to establish the “actual” needs and once completed we set about fundraising. We are lucky if we can fund 1 in 20 of the requests, resources are always limited.
 
How can I help?
You can help in any of the following ways:
  • Lobby people about development. 
  • Spread the word about our work and needs. 
  • Spread the word about 1 billion people needing water and sanitation.
  • South Africa is the 30th most water scarce country in the world, we must treasure and protect water. 
  • Be a Tsogang Ambassador. 
  • Start a campaign: 
  • help us fundraise
  • help us educate
  • Fundraise or donate – get friends and family to donate
  • Volunteer – come work with us
Why should I give, volunteer or promote? 
Good question. Why should I help, the government can help!
Well its sheer luck that we are born with resources and a silver spoon in our mouths. It may not look like a silver spoon but less than a fifth of the population flush a toilet and turn on taps or faucets (or whatever you call them in your country).
 
We can ignore the poor, they are easy to ignore. They are hidden most of the time. But it’s pure luck that we don’t have to defecate in a plastic bag and a hurl it on a roof or defecate in a running open sewer, to be eaten by rats and pigs, or die of diarrhoea before our 5th birthday. South Africa has made huge strides in combating  poverty and disease but there’s a long way to go. You can help.
 
Impact 
People are the most important resources when you build a school, water or sanitation scheme. People are healthier, more productive and better able to be agents of change of their own  development.
