It takes more than a passion to succeed in the nonprofit sector. Our training helps would-be and current nonprofit intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs build their skills to lead a sustainable organization.


Nonprofit organizations exist to solve societal problems. For that reason, they enjoy some benefits like access to financial and non-financial grants and tax-exempt status, among other benefits. People usually start a nonprofit organization out of a passion for solving a problem. For example, the Red Cross was founded in 1863 after Henry Dunant organized local people to support the wounded in the battle of Solferino, Italy. Building and sustaining an organization beyond the idea requires more than passion; it requires knowledge. Since Henry Dunant died on 30 October 1910, the Red Cross has continued to grow. It now exists in over 100 countries with more than 20,000 staff because Henry was able to put all the necessary structures in place, leveraging on his technical capacity and the skills of his workforce.

This training will help you learn the basics of starting and running a nonprofit organization afresh. It will show you how to lay a good foundation for your organization that guarantees its sustainability and ability to attract international grants. The training will focus on:

  • How to select the best idea(s) as your organization’s area of focus

  • What to do before registering with the Corporate Affairs Commission

  • What to do after registering with the Corporate Affairs Commission

  • How to refocus your existing organization


The training is also highly relevant for anyone who works for a nonprofit organization and desires to help the organization grow.
