Our Story. Access Based Development
GrowZA is part think tank, part policy shop and part project incubator serving the African development agenda through access-based development partnerships.
Societal access is a factor of the delivery of public services, facilities and amenities to intended user groups.
This access can be impacted by high cost, the lack of appropriate infrastructure or inherent/historical prejudices within the system that restrict use.
GrowZA harnesses the potential of an access based development approach for good as a catalyst for impactful change, driving human rights agendas and growing wealth creation potential in under-served communities.
Our access-based orientation manifests across the following programmatic expressions:
GrowZA programme impact anchors are structured relative to SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 17 (Strategic Partnerships) indicators. This allows for pragmatic tracking of return on investment for partners and serves as a true North for our programme designers.
We view SDG 4 as the "Gateway SDG" and see the SDG 4 platform as the springboard from which to impact a broad range of development outcomes. SDG 17 activation is positioned as a critical complementary sustainability channel for programming and development outcomes.
GrowZA delivers programming (as outlined above) and social investment consulting services to the market.
The professional services suite includes: Programme Design; Project Management; Social Impact Fund management and Feasibility studies to the donor market.
