Ranyaka is a social enterprise, established to bring sustainable and integrated solutions to the challenges facing towns, neighbourhoods and communities in South Africa.
The Ranyaka Protocol activates communities to self-organise around shared goals and follows these steps:
We help communities understand their context through data collection and analysis, planning, and stakeholder mapping.
We build project ‘pipeline’ and coordinate public, private and NGO partners to achieve collective, sustainable impact.
After identifying community priorities, we act as community investment manager in distributing funds to implement projects and monitoring these investments.
Monitoring and Evaluation
We measure the improvement of communities against four overarching outcomes and 40 indicators. We call this framework the Ranyaka Protocol.
What differentiates Ranyaka from many other community development interventions is our big picture understanding of the way in which places function.
We understand the impact of spatial planning and eco system design on community well-being.
In Lantana we are working with Valcare and supporting the community to do rapid repairs, our localisation of tactical urbanism.
