Our Socio-Economic Development Projects are Changing Lives
Since 2006, Umsizi Sustainable Social Solutions has been working toward the large-scale empowerment of disadvantaged communities, together with our implementations partner Socio-Technical Interfacing. We specialise in effective SED programmes, livelihoods development, enterprise development, skills development, mining charter compliance and other legislative compliance. Our flagship SED programme is the Broad-Based Livelihoods programme which empowers any resident to build towards self-sustainability and to enter the local economy with productive livelihoods using what they have, where they are, with no barriers to entry.
Through Impophomo, Umsizi has already undertaken to partner in various relief initiatives designed to bring aid to affected households. We call on you to join us and stand together in these efforts.
