Insika Foundation Kwazulu-Natal

Kwazulu Natal

Insika Foundation has a provincial office set up in Umhlanga, Kwa-Zulu Natal in order to serve the province at a local level. The operational model of Insika Foundation enables the Insika staff, Provincial Managers, Site Managers and Site Administrators to reach local communities more efficiently especially in remote, underserved areas of the province. In the implementation of Insika Foundation projects and programmes the objective is to use regional knowledge and expertise to roll-out initiatives in the most effective way working in collaboration with the community, municipality and other local structures. Synergy of communication between the Head Office in Gauteng and the Provincial office in Kwa-Zulu Natal is a key priority for Insika Foundation where an integrated network leverages both human and financial resources optimally. The Kwa-Zulu Natal office is managed by Nompumelelo Ngubane (Provincial Manager) and she is supported by ten staff members.
