Africa's first capacity development and sustainability centre for civil society!

Inyathelo floor planThe centre is a professional, energetic and inclusive space based in Woodstock, Cape Town, that provides support, training, advice, resources and facilities for civil society organisations.

Since its formation in 2002, Inyathelo has played a key role in building the Advancement capacity of non-profits, universities and anchor institutions as well as growing a strong philanthropic movement in South Africa. Our new centre enables us to scale up and expand our core offering to provide a more comprehensive range of services to help ensure the long term sustainability and independence of our vibrant civil society sector. 

We would like to thank The Atlantic Philanthropies and our many other donors and supporters for helping us realise this dream to create a really special place for civil society in which new ideas, thinking and initiatives focused on solving South Africa’s many social problems can take root, grow and flourish.
