We are a Pan-African technical support facility with expert technical advisors in a wide range of institutional strengthening subject areas that bring a holistic and balanced approach to solving challenges in the non-profit and social investment space.
Organisations are operating in environments with profound change, in times of extraordinary uncertainty and where at any time there can be exceptional turbulence-what used to work to survive and thrive, does not work any more as things become more complex.
We strive therefore to achieve: "Holistic and earnest solutions for excellence and optimal individual and institutional results!"
We support people and institutions to establish a purpose that has a deep rooted foundation; and then anchor it well by establishing the right balance of systems, processes and behaviours that inspire and motivate others towards set goals/objectives and targets.
We bring like-minded people and organisations together to i) co-design, implement and show sustainable community improvements using coalition models of collaborative working and ii) create platforms for continous peer learning and reflection around similar issues and challenges that they face along their journeys as change makers.
We glean lessons from our experiences and apply them in contributing to national dialogue and movements that promote national and global standards of excellence and accountability for African Civil Society Organisations.
We apply our years of experience in the sector to advocate for i) funding equity, ii) trust based philanthropy practice and a favourable national and global policy and economic environment to ensure that community improvement interventions yield effective and sustainable results. .
