Our Pillars

Communities are not built with spreadsheets.

We make Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) more immediate and meaningful for individuals and organisations by providing specialist software and paperless consulting services.

Imagine if Monitoring and Evaluation was not mainly about funding, compliance and mandatory reports - but gave you something useful in return? We believe that by improving the collection and reporting of data for M&E, organisations can gain real-time insights to improve their programmes and strategies. With M&E information organised more centrally and timeously, reporting can become an important decision-making tool.
Our individual profiles capture and reflect progress and experience across a range of skills through programme participation. Hard and soft skills gained through volunteering activities and in using the software are also captured - adding rigour and metrics to skills that are often difficult to track.
The Social Collective offers web tools for the collection, storage and reporting of data. It is designed to be used by entire organizations - from fieldworker to director. It offers real-time views of community activity and performance - giving organizations faster insights and verified reports to make actionable decisions.

The Department of health has partnered with Rotary International club which launched the Rotary family health days inspired by Phila movement. A little background on the stats which affect us as a nation, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading causes of mortality globally, causing more deaths than all other causes combined, and they strike hardest at the world’s low and middle-income populations. The NCD epidemic can be prevented through reduction of the underlying risk factors, early detection and timely treatments. Non-communicable Diseases, include Cardiovascular diseases, Diabetes, Chronic respiratory conditions, Cancer, Mental disorder, Oral diseases, Eye disease, Kidney disease and Musculoskeletal conditions, are largely preventable through attention to four major risk factors. These are Tobacco use; Physical inactivity; Unhealthy diets and Harmful use of Alcohol. Phila is an initiative by the National Department of Health, government departments and its partners. Phila’s objective is to move South Africans to act on their health status...  PHILA is an acronym for Public Health Innovation and Lifetime Achievement and also plays on the isiZulu word “phila” meaning life. Rotary is a movement which is international and there's certain platforms which they master at their own achievement as there's something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbors in need. We build, support, and organize. We save lives. We work locally and globally. Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million men and women of Rotary get involved in their communities, connect with other professionals, share their time and experience with young people, support global causes such as eradicating polio, and use their skills to help others. Rotary International was founded in 1905 by Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer, who wanted like minded businessmen to become more involved in their communities. Since its early beginnings, the organisation has spread to thousands of communities in hundreds of countries. Rotarians have been instrumental in numerous international projects and initiatives. One of the most successful initiatives has been the ongoing eradication of polio around the world. Many Rotary groups are involved with impoverished communities around the world in the provision of potable water supplies through the sinking of wells and boreholes. The Rotary Club of Johannesburg was chartered in 1921 and was the first Rotary Club on the African continent. We have been instrumental in many projects and community initiatives in and around Johannesburg. We have involved clubs in Europe and America in order to raise funds to build clinics, schools and generally uplift those communities who struggle with resources... The Rotary family health days which was happening in the whole of Gauteng in clinics government open spaces and centered around the districts/regions. It was a great initiative as it encouraged a person not knowing their status in every platform of their body so it encouraged a person to know how healthy he/she is how lively an individual is how active one is and also bringing the alert how often they check their health statuses in this journey of life, by visiting the clinic when they sick . Not when they sick but visit the clinic for the Sake of checking up their well-being in as the disease too arise to attack humanity. It was an amazing great initiative which gave an individual gut Not to fear to stay healthy or to keep themselves healthy People. Many people came in numbers even when it was rainy it shows how unified we want to keep ourselves healthy to live a better life and "Phila" for life. Phila, know your health status, #Phila #Phila4life #Rotaryfamilyhealthdays# Depofheàlth #Stayhealthy #Knowyourhealthstatus #Checkrandomly

#KnowYourHealth. The Rotary together with the department of Health hosted a three day health project aiming at giving the South African Citizens a platform for them to know their health. The project was happening in different places across the country. The importance of the project was to stay alert about your health, this project was meant to encourage people both young and old that being healthy is key and that a person should be healthy at all times, to encourage individuals to visit the clinic not only when they are sick but to also see how healthy they are.
