Southern Africa Development, Research and Training Institute


The Institute’s greatest strength is its ability to design and implement high impact programmes. With a holistic approach, complex problems are analysed and programmes are designed by integrating and synthesising the learning gained over decades by specialists with ‘hands-on’ experience. These programmes take into account historical successes and failures, the practicalities of current realities, and the future direction needed for success.  

To date, the Institute has provided services in the following areas: poverty alleviation strategies, community facilitation and participation processes including memory and trauma healing, social compact processes, heritage policy development, skills development strategies, integrated youth development programmes, conflict management and violence prevention, integration of arts, culture and sports into social development programmes and integrated HIV/Aids programmes.  A detailed list of projects can be found on our website.
