Report to Society 2019
Tshikululu is the Venda name for the resilient African Rock Fig (Ficus Abutifolia), which flourishes in South Africa’s far north regions despite few resources and a challenging environment. Just like this tree, the funds under Tshikululu’s management and the social investments that we advise on support development programmes that take root in small gaps and adverse conditions yet flourish over time.
Established in 1998, Tshikululu is a social investment fund manager and advisor, working alongside investors and other development partners to maximise the power of social investment. We define social investment as any financial commitment – from grant making to impact investing – that seeks to drive and measure social impact.
This report to society does not claim to be a fully integrated Report. It covers the period 1 January 2019 – 31 December 2019. This report integrates Tshikululu’s activities within the context in which the company finds itself operating. References to these are carried throughout the report.
