NGO Connect started
in Mumbai ten years ago as a project of Shakti, registered
as a Trust in 1985 by a group of women who saw the need for,
training and networking in the NGO sector.
Since moving to Bangalore, NGO Connect
is now an entity on its own. It continues to be a bi-monthly
printed paper, with a strong Net presence and hopes to be
self supporting in some time.
NGO Connect needs the cooperation
and assistance of cconcerned citizens, NGOs and corporates
to make this service a positive contribution to strengthen
the nonprofit sector. Send us news about your local community,
your NGO, your favourite person; corporates can send us their
CSR ventures so more people know about them; and NGOs can
update their events/annual statements/conference/job requirements.
All, or nearly all, items carry an email address or a tel.
number for networking. In a way, as someone said, it is THE
publication for all NGOs.
Since NGOConnect is self-funded
(through subscriptions and advertising) it does not depend
on grants or subsidies. We strongly believe that any activity/individual
must become self-sufficient to be able to be truly independent.
