Non-profit organisations in the South are steadily becoming more professional. But there are still vast differences between organisations and their levels of capacity.

To help in the process of professionalisation this guide for local NGOs has been put together, including the following topics:

  • The process of professionalism
  • The planning of a project
  • Finding money for the project

3rd edition, updated June 2008. First published 2004, Amsterdam.
