Who we are

Development Initiatives (DI) is an international development organisation that focuses on putting data-driven decision-making at the heart of poverty eradication.

Our values

The values we hold define who we are,  the way we work  and how we interact  with others.


Openness is in our DNA. We believe that honesty brings out the best in people and encourages a positive learning culture.


We look to the future and adapt as our external environment changes because we are always striving to best meet the needs of our stakeholders.


Collaboration is inherent in how we work and we strive to be a driving force that supports and facilitates  others who are working to end poverty.


We  know  that where there’s a will there’s a way to end poverty. If an idea fails, it is never the end but a catalyst to keep seeking until we find the solution.


We are proud to be  specialists, allowing us to truly nurture our expertise and ensure a rigorous approach to all that we do.
