Our Partners

Africa!Ignite’s development philosophy centres around partnerships. In everything we do, we rely on collaboration with and support from like-minded partners who share our vision. We are very grateful to our partners and strive to never take their contributions for granted.

As our purpose states, we create partnerships with rural communities, and these partnerships enable us to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of KwaZulu-Natal’s women and youths. We value all our rural and community partners.

We are equally indebted for the very strong and loyal collaboration and support of a wide range of like-minded partners from all walks of life, such as (alphabetical listing):
