Why donate to NSI?

Democracy remains fragile in many parts of the world. Weak governance arrangements and institutions undermine the ability of elected governments to enact their policies, eroding the credibility of democratic systems. By supporting NSI, you help address these challenges and strengthen democratic institutions worldwide, specially in South Africa. Your assistance is pivotal to advancing our reform agenda and providing practical, implementable solutions.
