About Us

Kwalata Community Development Initiative (KCDI)

KCDI is a socio-economic development enterprise which has grown out of a twenty-year involvement in the surrounding community. For the past five years, we have facilitated and assisted International Partners and Corporate South Africa to commit, engage and roll out their social responsibility obligations successfully and with tangible results. We have created a framework whereby, with the aid of Partners and Sponsors, long-term relationships are formed in the community.

Our Vision:

    To establish the KCDI as a single point of entry from where outreach and development strategies are implemented by means of networking with Local and International Partners.
    We strive to engage, enable and empower the Southern African community to create a sustainable foundation for development and upliftment.

Our Business:

    Local Corporate Social Investment is required by South African BBBEEE law.
    KCDI specialises in facilitating an exchange of resourceswhich are channelled to achieve measurable resultsas expected by Public and Private Sector organisations.
    Benefits include brand building, recognised CSI claims and delivery of their marketing message into a selected target market.
    We analyse the needs of our community and connect sponsors and partners with specific projects. We also identify entrepreneurs in the community and ensure that their needs are met. This, in turn, results in the creation of micro free-market economies which are one of the cornerstones of upliftment.
    We promotes social upliftment via skills transfer and capacity building. We are also the conduit for International Funding in a fully accountable way.

Via the use of the Internet, partners are kept up to date with their chosen project’s progress. This ensures that funding has been applied as the partner intended.

Our long-term involvement with and intimate knowledge of the community, being it either smallholders, subsistence farmers, day care centres, schools, various clubs and up to frail care centres, has established the culture of mutual trust in which KCDI functions.
By engaging in social responsibility, organisations encourage the upliftment of communities which bridge the social divide.
