‘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, Tshikululu works with social investor clients to design and implement development programmes that take root in small gaps and adverse conditions, yet flourish over time.

ABOUT

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. Our service offering is underpinned by a deep and hands-on understanding of the complexities of development and social investment.

As agents of social change, we partner with our clients throughout South Africa to realise their social investment goals. Over more than two decades, we have operated in every province in the country, covering urban and rural areas, and collaborated with social investors in various industries including mining, financial services, renewable energy, property development, banking, insurance, healthcare and logistics.
