Social change

spreukWe are part of a whole. We are not alone, but all one. An important driver for our work is to make a difference. Not only to go the extra mile for the client, but to create impact on the larger whole.

SanderMahieu is not only the founder, it is also a metaphor for an “ndaba”, a meeting place for people to raise consciousness, to evolve their personal leadership, to sharpen their mind, to explore their role in society, to share knowledge and skills and by all means to support and empower others.

We therefore invite individuals, educational institutions, foundations/trusts and NGOs to engage with us and to explore how we can contribute and learn from each other.

We are open to giving talks around the role of business, consciousness, culture and performance to ignite or fuel social change.


Tsiba logoTertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA) Cape Town was founded in 2004 with the vision to “Ignite Opportunity”. Their key question was: “Of what value is it to assist a handful of the previously disadvantaged students to jump the gap between rich and poor?” TSiBA’s mission is to be an innovative learning community that graduates entrepreneurial leaders who ignite opportunity and social change. Sander Mahieu is a volunteer mentor and tutor at TSiBA

The Hunger Project
We are inspired by The Hunger Project (THP) because of its groundbreaking vision and entrepreneurial approach. There are many similarities with our work in organizations: looking for what’s missing, addressing the potential, creating innovative visions, fostering leadership and empowering people to take on responsibility and to deliver.

The Hunger Project is a global, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. It operates outside of the standard service-delivery paradigm of development, which encourages dependence. It does not provide food, money or western professionals, but unleashes the human spirit of grassroots people. The Hunger Project has demonstrated an effective methodology, blending empowerment of people, micro-finance and gender equality. People in Asia, Africa and South America are empowered to discover their vision, express their leadership and work together to solve their own hunger and extreme poverty.
Sander Mahieu has chaired the Board of Trustees and is now member of the Advisory Council of the Dutch branch; he’s also an investor in THP.

“Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be a member of that generation that for the first time had it in its power to wipe out poverty and did so.” – Nelson Mandela, 2005
