Our Programme Approach
We integrate a community enterprise model into strategic programme management while working with communal land associations to achieve impact-oriented results that facilitate synergies with government structures, civil society and other formal or informal sectors using a people-centred approach.
We ensure that communal land associations evolve into such local enterprises that inspire the modelling of innovative and scalable solutions. This is intended to achieve sustainable development through transformative tenure governance practices, equitable alignment of decision-making power, and effective management of land based resources at the micro, meso and macro levels.
We're passionate about helping local communities to think creatively so as to challenge the norms and exploit the potential in their market economy by targeting the emerging locally-based sectors to link with the wider business networks across the world. We work with persons of influence in communities to adopt participatory strategies that enable the less-empowered members of society to overcome traditional limitations, explore new production lines, diversify sources of livelihood, add-value to their commodities and establish broader supply chains.
We inspire individuals to embrace fit-for-purpose tools that will ensure sustainable foot prints in their development path through access to our services which include land mapping and boundary demarcation, capacity building and awareness-raising, advocacy campaigns and influencing, as well as community engagement for innovative land-based programming such as the forming of local groups into communal land associations and the use of various land tools to support efforts towards improved quality of life. This is done with the recognition of the centrality of land in the development process by promoting secure tenure rights, equitable access to land (including other productive resources) and infrastructural development for inclusive growth.
The importance of sustaining effective working relations with government is always underscored alongside the need to create strategic partnerships with private investors and third sector players for the required level of social, financial and environmental impact while allowing for the local articulation of concrete problems to be solved.
We further focus our attention on promoting active experiential (and experimental) learning with evidence-driven feedback built into regular project management and decision making processes, in ways that allow for real-time adaptation using fit-for-purpose tools differently applicable in every given local context.
