Our footprint is extensive: we believe in knowledge-sharing and empowering our local partners to deliver research that matters and that digs deeper, we are involved throughout the process supporting, training and building the teams to deliver great work.

Our company values are Transparency, Integrity, Authenticity, Curiosity, Empathy, Creativity, Volunteering and Lifelong Learning.

To delve deeply into the understanding we need to create an environment of safety and inclusion, we, therefore, pay special attention to training moderators with the same ethnicity and background as well as ensuring that we separate observers and clients from our participants as biasing happens very easily. Culture in Africa is complex and layered.

We help businesses cater for diversity and inclusion!
