Our Mission

To us, 'self-sustaining solutions' Is both about bridging gaps between private and third sector and about empowering beneficiaries to take ownership and be the architects of their own development.


We do this through building relationships: betweten international organisations and everyday people; between businesses and non-profit organisations; between governmental and non-governmental organisations and between people and the environment.


How is sustainability measured?

At CSPOC we believe in building self-sustaining solutions. We have therefore developed a framework around this, based on our observations working with people, organisations and communities. To attain self-sustaining solutions, we believe that you need to integrate inputs in 'health', 'education' and 'enterprise.' Through time, we have witnessed such investments go a long way and ultimately affecting positive outcomes in 'wealth', 'citizenship' and the 'environment.' This dynamic model has been applied to our projects, producing successful results. Such successes are characterised by the fact that they are self-sustainable. We therefore measure the success of our projects by whether they can be owned by their beneficiaries, the extent of which these projects can be developed on their own - without further assistance, and whether they are capable of passing to the next generation... and the one after that.
