Mvula Trust

Boost for Mvula Trustís project management

On 5 May 2016, ProjectPro presented a proposal to key stakeholders from Mvula Trust to kick-start  an ambitious programme to improve Mvula Trustís project management systems and capabilities.

The Mvula Trust (TMT), established in 1993, is South Africaís leading and largest water and sanitation NGO. Since its inception , TMT has built a good reputation that positioned the organisation as a change agent and champion of community development.

TMTís occupational single-mindedness is in implementing and supporting the delivery of water and sanitation services in rural and peri-urban areas across South Africa. They specialise in community management, the establishment of community-based water and sanitation services providers and supporting national and local authorities to create and establish an enabling environment for water and sanitation sustainability.

The programme is divided into two stages.
