Developing future leaders

Energy & Infrastructure Development:


Infrastructure development is critical to economic growth on the African continent. An understanding of the structuring of large-scale projects is critical and the development of specialist infrastructure development skills locally will be necessary to address the continent’s current infrastructure backlog.

We regularly facilitate PPP, project finance & legal due diligence training sessions with the Association of African Development Finance Institutions aimed at building capabilities of professions working in development finance institutions across the continent.

Kani has presented training sessions to DFIs such as the Uganda Development Bank, Citizen Entrepreneurial Development Agency (Botswana), Development Bank of Ethiopia, Infrastructure Development Bank of Zimbabwe, Eswatini Development and Savings Bank, Agricultural Development Bank of Ghana and the Development Bank of Zambia.

SMME Development: 

Businesses operate in a regulated environment and commercial decisions need to  be driven by a full understanding of both commercial and legal risk.

It is a business imperative for businesses to have the necessary legal understanding in order to be able to adequately avoid or mitigate any risks identified.

We are also regularly facilitate legal masterclasses for business owners to enable them to identify and mitigate legal and commercial risk and have trained ESD Beneficiaries for corporates such as Sasol and have also worked with leading SMME funders and incubators such as Edge Growth.


We believe that renewable energy has the ability to drive meaningful socio-economic development.

As an integral component of modern society, access to electricity plays a pivotal role in economic prosperity, with another fundamental contributor to economic growth being education.

Statistics show that 78% of Grade 4 pupils in South Africa cannot read for basic meaning, that means eight out of ten 10-year-olds in South Africa, are functionally illiterate.

READPower is a social investment initiative developed by Kani in partnership with Educubed Foundation to distribute solar lighting systems to households in informal settlements and rural communities who cannot afford electricity and fund literacy and numeracy programmes in those communities.

The Programme also incorporates unemployed youth, with a focus on women, living in informal settlements by training unemployed youth from local communities to install and maintain the lighting solutions.

Kani invites its partners to use their Socio-Economic Development Spend to make a positive impact in improving the national literacy rate and secure South Africa’s future by supporting READPower.
