Exclude any organisations that say they work in more than countries (out of 248).


Data notes

NGOs are only included if they say they work in fewer than 50 countries. This is because some organisations claim they are working in every single country in the world, or very large numbers of countries. This is unlikely. So we can exclude them by restricting the number of countries organisations work in.

The figures for income and spending include the total income and spending of the organisations in all the countries they work in.

Religious organisations refers to those organisations which self-describe themselves as undertaking "religious activities" in their causes.

* It is not possible to isolate spending only on South Africa, we can only report spending by organisations in all the countries they work in.

Financial data is based on the latest available for these organisations. The latest available data is from 2020, though for some organisations it may be earlier.
