Capacitate Social Solutions


Capacitate Social Solutions is a social enterprise that was established in 2015 to support stakeholders across the social and green economy and drive innovation for impact.
Our focus is to enable greater efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability across the development sector. Leveraging our decades of collective experience across the continent, we deliver relevant, fit-for-purpose solutions to address common challenges and unique problems experienced by investing and implementing partners.

As a consultancy we have adopted a human-centred, partnership model for engagement, recognising that the best way to achieve sustainable results and maximize impact, is by drawing on the collective expertise and resources of all stakeholders involved.
In addition to a deep understanding of the African landscape and a passion for driving positive change on the continent, Capacitate has extensive experience across the development spectrum and informal economy.

This includes projects in:

• youth development,
• emerging enterprise and township economy,
• development finance,
• energy,
• food security and agriculture,
• social services,
• environment,
• healthcare,
• advocacy and policy advisory


Drawing on our experience and deep understanding of the challenges facing stakeholders across the sector we are able to apply a participatory systems approach to improve outcomes and deliver sustainable, scalable solutions.
