Human Rights, Rule of Law, Strategy and Organisation Development Specialists

We are currently testing this website. This beta version of our website will allow you to learn more about the Indiba-Africa Group.

The word "Indiba" is Kinyarwanda for the foundation or base of a vessel. This is an apt description of the type of support we provide our clients. Our logo was designed for us using West African Adinkra symbols, synonomous with our humanist philosophy.

The Indiba-Africa Group was founded in 2005. Its establishment was motivated by a dearth of African private consultancies, which were able to professionally service clients in the public, private and nonprofit sector, while employing a human rights approach to their work. Since 2005, the Indiba-Africa Group has become one of Africa's leading private Human Rights, Rule of Law, Strategy and Organisation Development specialists. Our clients, based in the private, public and civil society sectors, are leading African and international entities and include large multinational corporations, governments as well as grassroots, national, regional and international not-for-profit civil society organisations. 

Enhancing Pathways for Strategic Transformation

We have a vision of a diverse and strong Africa, where her people have equitable opportunities to thrive in all aspects of their lives. Our mission is to provide indigenous and exceptional solutions and interventions to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the public, private and nonprofit sectors. Our clients engage us during all phases of their development. Often, our interventions become cathartic instances in the life of organisations, precipitating previously unrealised potential.

We believe that there is a strong nexus between the rule of law, economic development and the realisation of human rights and other indicators of well-being such as the Millenium Development Goals. While we have established the Indiba-Africa Group as a key catalyst in the strengthening of the rule of law in Africa, we continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the rule of law is underpinned by the notion that the poor and vulnerable and are equipped to resist social exclusion, disempowerment and extreme poverty.

African Solutions and a Pan-African Reach

With offices in South Africa (Johannesburg) and Kigali (Rwanda) and a presence in Swaziland, we serve our clients across West, Central, East and Southern Africa.

We thrive in environments where there are seemingly insurmountable challenges and we have a track record of always developing unique and bespoke solutions. Our solutions are tempered through a comprehensive understanding of the context, particularly, where no recorded information exists or where others have had difficulty in sourcing information. Our success in developing solutions to complex challenges is underpinned by our non-partisan and objective stance and our innate ability to respect religious, cultural, race, ethnic and other significant aspects and imperatives relating to vulnerable groups.
