The Social Justice Initiative mobilises resources for social justice work in South Africa. We are a non-profit organisation, established in 2013.

SJI is excited to launch a search for the next Executive Director who will transition the organisation from a foundation phase to sustained growth, as I will be stepping aside to pursue other interests.

In 2015, I became the inaugural ED and worked alongside an inspiring and supportive Board of Directors who are committed to building a just and fair South Africa. I was also supported by a group of philanthropists, who became SJI’s ambassadors, and helped us with fundraising.

The SJI was created to mobilise resources and long-term investments in support of non-profit organisations in South Africa that promote and protect the rights enshrined in the Constitution. We work tirelessly to find new sources of funding locally and abroad to sustain the vital work of social justice organisations. We also facilitate relationships and connect philanthropists to social change opportunities. We are proud to have enabled over 100 non-profits since 2014 access additional funding via SJI and are encouraged to see local philanthropists increase their investments in the sector.

If you know of leaders who are energetic, entrepreneurial, and with extensive networks of high net-worth individuals and have knowledge of social investment, we are inviting them to apply for this exciting opportunity.
