Seriti Institute (Seriti), formed in 2009, is a development facilitation agency which works to help communities and social partners reach their goals by delivering innovative, sustainable and comprehensive solutions to enhance their socio-economic impact. We achieve this by providing technical support, programme/project management and implementation, facilitated learning and promoting civic-driven change and accountability.

Seriti is a non-profit company (NPO Registration: 078-483-NPO), registered as a public benefit organisation (PBO Reference: 930042754), governed by a board of distinguished professionals and led by black women. We are Level 1 BBBEE compliant. As a social enterprise, our revenue derives from fees-for-service from programmes, as well as from consulting assignments. As an NPC, surplus funds are ploughed back into community development initiatives.

Seriti's Thematic Areas

  1. Seriti Solutions Exchange (SSE)
    The SSE is a social impact growth enabler and platform to strengthen social partners (CBOs, NGOs, NPOs, CPAs and social enterprises). We advise and partner with social partners to facilitate effective social change, develop responsible, impactful ways of doing business with significant social impact.
  2. Programme/Project Management and Implementation
    We offer a project management methodology with clearly defined design thinking and systems approach. Each intervention is framed as a unique programme with specific results, performance targets and a clear budget.
  3. Facilitated Learning Events
    As a community development facilitation agency with core competence in education and training, we focus on capacity building and blended learning methodologies supported by participatory learning techniques.
  4. Civic Driven Change and Accountability
    We use evidence-based arguments and ‘facts on the ground’ to make proposals for the shift in policy; support innovation and hold government accountable.
