Distell Case Study: Non-Profit Sustainability Programme

Distell | Non-Profit Sustainability Programme


Africa’s leading producer of award-winning alcoholic brands Distell recognized that there was a need to build capacity and resilience amongst the social change organisations they supported, many of whom were beginning their journey towards a social enterprise model.

Distell’s CSI department took up the challenge to maximize the impact of their Non-Profit beneficiaries by investing in a Non-Profit Sustainability Programme.

They partnered with Social Enterprise Academy to offer learning programmes and mentorship in the areas of leadership, measuring social impact, and social enterprise to enable twelve non-profits to become more financially sustainable, whilst increasing their social impact.   

Read some of the case studies from members of some of the non-profit organisations that participated on the Distell Non-Profit Sustainability Programme.

Untitled design 28In 2022 I attended facilitation for transformation. I was selected as the youngest participant with people who had so much experience in facilitation. Now am using the experience I’ve gained to impact Wildfire youth in my community church every Friday night. In 2023 I will study fashion design at Fedisa which was always my dream to study fashion, this was through Social Enterprise Academy because I received certificates that allowed me to get accepted with the short training I’ve attended.Untitled design 29 - Sikelela Kwatsha
