How the Trust makes an impact

The Southern Africa Trust is committed to making a real difference in amplifying the voices of the poor and facilitating regional poverty alleviation. We do this, by:

  • Facilitating philanthropic and goodwill initiatives that support the civil society sector.
  • Building alliances, networks and coalitions in policy influence, enabling public-private-civil society collaborations.
  • Providing evidence-based advocacy and capability building for organisations to reduce poverty and inequality in their sectors.
  • Working with non-government and inter-government organisations to influence the drafting and implementation of policies.
  • Continuing to build a rich hub of knowledge to serve the development of policies.
  • Bringing about both systemic and authentic change through innovation and issuing of grants to regional organisations across all sizes, sectors and organisations.
