About us

What we do

Our Pillars

Communities are not built with spreadsheets.

The Social Collective makes 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.

Stories About Communities, By Communities

Opportunities to make a change may change you.

No good deed goes unnoticed with My hands and heart, an Ambassador Sello King Sonkosi who is a change agent in his community Poortjie, has been doing a great job in mobilizing the unemployed youth in his community to make the most of their time and not just sit at home. He encourages them to volunteer and change their community for the better. He is not only uplifting his community but also helping the youth of Poortjie gain employable skills through volunteering, which in the long run will help them when they seek employment. Sello has helped organised and manage a few helpful and beneficial volunteer opportunities in his community these include: Clean up campaign, Networking and Information sharing session, Fixing leaking taps, Library assistant, Employment drive to name just a few and, out of this he managed to gain some skills along with the youth he is volunteering with and the skills gained include: Communication, Conservation efforts, Interpersonal skills, Community development to name just a few. Sello so far has managed to mobilize a large number of volunteers and for that he was awarded an Iphone as a token of appreciation for the amazing work that he is doing in his community. With more young people like Sello South Africa would be a great place.

Giving back to those that are in need must not be taken lightly. I see this everyday working here at the JHB Culinary & Pastry school in Maboneng and we do our best to empower and help each and every volunteer that walks through our school doors.We constantly concentrate our efforts to empowering aspiring chefs who at this present moment in time are volunteers in the art of culinary and pastry prowess. Each year many volunteers come to our school and get the opportunity to enhance and develop their skills as aspiring chefs. Corporate companies are our primary help for sourcing the required funds to take our aspiring chefs through school and we strive to put as many people through our culinary and pastry school on scholarships as possible. With the help of normal citizens who aren't necessarily business owners we would be able to fund way more than two people through school. We are extremely thankful for the volunteers from My Hands and Heart who assisted in setting up for our foundation fundraiser. The extra hands really helped to make sure the event was successful. We look forward in working together in the future.

It's incredible and remarkable how animals play such an amazing role in human beings life's. Well I got experience an amazing time at the SPCA, my first day as a first welcome by incredible and amazing people with the love for one thing, the well being of the animals they take care of. Starting my day assisting within the Craft Market Day, a day to raise funds for the animals that are taken care at the SPCA, an exciting day. As I carry on my volunteer journey with the SPCA excitedly to learn about the different animals and well being of them.

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation was established in 1979 as a support group to parents of children with cancer, by parents of children with cancer. Having experienced the immense emotional and financial toll that cancer takes they recognised there is more than one victim in the family of the child with cancer. Their aim was to ease the burden on parents facing the same journey by providing access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support.
