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.

Even though Nala is known for establishing food gardens, the site has slowly been increasing its involvement in sports coaching: The site has developed partnerships with local schools such that schools allow learners to get involved in this activity.

The number of learners from different schools who are coached on various sport codes, during and after school hours, has increased from 510 to 670. In mid-March, two of these learners were involved in a provincial tennis tournament in Bloemfontein.
