On 22 May 2012, SECTION27 responded to the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) call for submissions to assist the NLDTF in developing its funding priorities. SECTION27 dealt with the NLDTF funding practices and priorities in the submission and recommended that social justice and human rights programmes be prioritised for funding by the NLDTF in the next funding period. SECTION27 made this submission because we believe that this work is critically important in a participatory democracy and because there are statutory and constitutional obligations to fund this work and ensure its sustainability.
This submission is endorsed by: AIDS Foundation of South Africa, Atlantic Philanthropies, Equal Education, ProBono.org, RAITH Foundation, Rural Health Advocacy Project and Sonke Gender Justice.
