NLC Funding for Hangwani Mulaudzi Foundation
The National Lotteries Commission has noted, with concern, recent media reports with regards to a grant allocated to the Hangwani Mulaudzi Foundation.
Due to the public interest generated by mischievous insinuations of conflict of interest, the NLC is duty bound to set the record straight.
The Hangwani Mulaudzi Foundation went through a normal application process. The grant was approved by the Distribution Agency of the Sport and Recreation Sector. The Distribution Agencies are independent committees appointed by the Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition.
It is important to note that the NLC does not allocate grants to individuals but to registered NGOs/NPOs that work for public good.
Half of the funds in the Sport and Recreation Sector is directed to developing sport and recreation facilities in rural areas, this with the aim of increasing accessibility for disabled persons and to assist previously disadvantaged communities to participate in sporting activities.
The NLC would like to urge all interested parties to familiarize themselves with its process and guidelines to avoid tarnishing the organisation’s and grant recipients reputations.
