About Prodder

Welcome to Prodder, the most comprehensive online directory about NGOs and other development organisations in South Africa.

Information and knowledge have become critical determinants of development and the driving forces behind economic progress in today's competitive world. Access to credible information is a strategic prerequisite for the success of development projects and processes. It empowers decision-making and enables action across a wide range of development issues.
 
The ultimate objective of Prodder is to highlight the activities of organisations involved in development work in South Africa. It provides a reference point for donors and other stakeholders that want to engage with the NGO sector and maps the scope and scale of NGO activities throughout South Africa.
 
Prodder’s activities also make an important contribution towards SANGONeT’s vision and mission of facilitating access to information, raising awareness of important issues affecting the development agenda, enhancing the reach and impact of development activists, and linking people and organisations through the use of ICTs in Southern Africa.
 
Prodder is an integral part of SANGONeT’s NGO Pulse Portal which provides a gateway to the NGO sector in South Africa.
 
Both SANGONeT and Prodder were established in 1987 and celebrate an important milestone in 2012 - 25 years of serving and supporting the NGO sector in South Africa.
