Our Featured Client:

Safe Child Africa

 

 

“We thoroughly enjoyed working with ICA to help create, design and implement a 5 year organisational strategy for the charity. Through varied workshops and tasks, we were led as a team to reevaluate the charity’s priorities and vision for the future and to set realistic goals as well as identify key projects and tasks to achieve them.

 

As a small charity, it’s often hard to know what to prioritise in strategy design as well as navigate and organise the information that is produced from extensive evaluation. Working closely with Jonathan over a 3-month period, he guided us through this complex labyrinth to refine and detangle ideas, serving the organisations financial, project and administration needs, and producing a robust and streamlined strategy”
