ICRD Group Foundation is an independent think-and-do tank committed to enabling better development outcomes in Southern Africa through collaboration and innovation.
We are a collaborative social innovation platform that brings together individuals and organisations from diverse sectors, disciplines and generations to work together on developing innovative solutions to pressing social, ecological and economic issues. Our mandate is to identify and develop sustainable development pathways in rural and urban communities. We facilitate the successful implementation of life changing ideas, with a strong focus on sustainability, using unconventional approaches, tools and strategic alliances.
We pilot and develop innovative solutions in education, health, social cohesion, environmental sustainability, social entrepreneurship, policy and advocacy using state of the art technology. We use knowledge application principles as well as creative collaboration tools to identify trends and facilitate the connection of otherwise disconnected organizations, disciplines, sectors and generations. We are committed to working closely with governments, industry partners, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions to help expand economic, social, and ecological opportunities.
Today, our community consists of social entrepreneurs and investors, community leaders, activists, cultural creatives, and thought leaders who are all seeking to align what they care about with their actions to make the world a better place
A Sub-Saharan where communities,
nature, and commerce thrive in harmony.
