SOCIO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT:  TRAINING COMMUNITY LEADERS

 

Recent developments in our country point to the urgent need for courageous leadership, not only at national level, but also in communities across the board. Given our expertise in training and development, we have become increasingly involved in training civic leaders in the art of facilitation and enhancing their skill-set to guide and counsel people in their communities. 

 

We gladly partner with establish civic organizations where the shared goal is to meaningfully contribute to the development of a South Africa where everyone can live with dignity and integrity.
