"Smoke and Mirrors": The National Lottery and the Non-Profit Sector
Louw, Dr Stephen


The National Lottery is intended to provide a sustainable source of funding for non-profit organisations in South Africa, so as to provide a better life for all citizens. One of the criticisms of the post-apartheid government is that their formulation of ambitious, often wide-sweeping, development plans are seldom matched with an accompanying attention to the critical institutional and social framework necessary to implement this policy. The inception of the National Lottery is used as an example of the inability of the South African government to match its social commitments with actual delivery.
