Social investors invited to participate in new Covid-19 research


Social investment fund manager Tshikululu has initiated a project to map the interventions of social investors throughout South Africa. The aim of the project is to develop an integrated picture of interventions from a multitude of funders and reflect a multi-sector response to a humanitarian crisis.

“Our aim is to map the interventions of as many role players in order to show the picture of how social investors are participating in mitigating the effects of Covid-19. Mapping these responses will introduce a level of transparency and let all South Africans know the exact extent of what organisations are doing to help those most in need during this difficult time. We believe it will demonstrate the story of how South Africans responded when the country needed them most,” says Nikki Griffiths, COO of Tshikululu.

Disaster risk mitigation

By mapping the social investment taking place in South Africa, Tshikululu believes this data will also prove invaluable going forward in terms of decision-making and fund disbursement as the response to the pandemic continues and disaster risk mitigation is planned in the future. The map is available to view at

Tshikululu is inviting all social investors to participate. For more information, email
