Seriti Institute strengthens community organisation for social health and local economic development. It uses large scale participatory methods, and in its systemic interventions forges partnerships involving communities, government departments, non-governmental organisations, civil society and business.

Seriti's programmes are all designed to achieve social scale impact, with participation of hundreds of people and collaboration of all actors within an activity system. A coherent theory informs Seriti’s approaches, and is perhaps best expressed in the Organisation Workshop which forges organisational literacy amongst a large group of participants, while creating enterprises and social cohesion.

Seriti is one of the Implementing Agents for the South African government’s Community Work Programme, and was one of the main partners in the Kwanda reality TV show.

250 Moringa trees were planted in various sub-sites in Tembisa, EKURHULENI. This activity was realised through a partnership between the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta), EKURHULENI METROPOLITAN MUNICIPALITY,

ABSA bank and SERITI Institute .These trees were donated to CWP by ABSA bank in a collaborative effort to develop comprehensive poverty alleviation projects in the municipality. The partnership will contribute to strengthening and enhancing the strategy of transferring skills to unemployed youth while making them economically productive and self-sufficient within the Metro

Four sites were identified in TEMBISA and three in KATLEHONG; Isthama section (36), Isabelo Primary School (60), Phomolong Primary School (60), Zizameleni Creche (47, Mogobeng Primary School (15) and Zibeleni Primary school (5). The 40 remaining trees will be officially handed over to the site by the Minister of Cooperative Governance Mr. Des van Rooyen, his Deputy Mr. Andries Nel, MEC of CoGTA Mr. Paul Mashatile and the Executive Mayor of EKURHULENI, Mr. Mzwandile Masina.

Once the trees are fully grown, their leaves can be cooked as spinach, harvested, dried and processed into Moringa powder which can be used in soup, tea, porridge etc. The tree leaves can also be used to produce Moringa juice, its seed can also be used for the production of more seedlings or to produce Moringa oil.
