Testimonials

The Impact Bond Innovation Fund, launched in South Africa in 2018, is the first Social Impact Bond for early childhood development in the Global South. As technical auditor, Development Works Changemakers (DWC) has met its brief effectively, providing pertinent, efficient, cost-effective and timely services. In the context of a complex, challenging project, the DWC team is always professional, flexible and sensitive to changing needs and we are delighted to have DWC as our service provider.

Lindy and the team at Development Works Changemakers were enormously helpful in helping us raise funds for our projects and connect to key individuals and organisations. They were friendly and approachable, and instantly ‘got’ what we were trying to do. They helped us organise a fundraiser and make key industry connections at very short notice and were amazingly supportive throughout the process. It was both reassuring and effective having them as partners in our fundraising efforts and networking.

Digital Frontiers Institute is a non-profit funded by a number of high-profile donors including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with a core focus on capacity building in developing countries in the digital finance industry. DFI appointed Development Works Changemakers in September 2018 to assist with a rapid assessment of the impact of DFI’s training courses. The project had tight timelines and involved significant preparation and international travel. DWC, represented by Susannah and Jenna, stepped up tremendously to this task and were instrumental in ensuring that the project was delivered on time and to a high standard. Professionally DWC were fantastic to work with, and DFI looks forward to continuing their working partnership.

Development Works Changemakers were contracted to perform a Rapid Assessment on the 2018 Green Building Council South Africa SMME Support and Development Programme. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the DWC team. They are highly professional and went the extra mile to understand our programme and our requirements. We really valued their professional expertise and guidance.

The British Council South Africa has been working with Development Works Changemakers on the Premier Skills’ International Enterprise Programme, in partnership with the Premier League and Sports Relief. With DWC’s great work ethic, we have been able to successfully launch an enterprise programme with a variety of community development projects, where DWC is carrying out the M&E of this new scope of work. It has been a great pleasure working with them in defining the programme’s outcomes and the overall progress thus far.

It was a great experience to work with Development Works Changemakers. They pulled together a knowledgeable and passionate team of researchers, analysts and fieldworkers, which resulted in an excellent body of work that can be applied both strategically and operationally. It is always great to work with a team that are flexible to a dynamic work environment, but most notably I would like to acknowledge and thank the team for their thoughtfulness and care in working with us, particularly in going the extra mile with the final data analysis which made hugely helpful recommendations for us to take forward.
