As a space for development professionals to share knowledge and experiences, we hope many of you will write for the industry and engage in thought provoking and industry championing debate on the site. We are looking for discussion-provoking critical opinions, essays, articles, newsworthy arguments, projects, research and more – Ideas that are well researched with evidence to back up claims, timely statistics, and connections between one’s personal experience and larger social forces. Interviews with feminist culture-makers are welcome, as are books, films, and music reviews and nuanced analyses of particularly horrifying and/or inspiring examples of CSI and developmental sector. We do not publish fiction or poetry. If you have not written for us previously and are pitching a feature please send either a full draft or a 300 word write up outlining your article.

CSRNEWSSA is South Africa’s leading corporate social responsibility news digital publication, working alongside government, corporates, consultants, NPOs & NGOs to share, tell, empower and encourage South Africa’s do-good stories.
Five years after founding, CSRNEWSSA has become known for doggedly investigating various developmental matters, and for the dissemination of issues relating to community development, wealth and power.
Specific projects include ‘The Great Funders Conference,’ (an annual linking of funders and NGOs), ‘Faces of CSI,’ (a print publication presenting the low-down on the state of CSI).
Our mission is to improve the practice of CSI in a changing South Africa. This mission influences how we approach development, what we do and what we believe is important.
