Empowering Decision Makers

There is a need for in-depth and focused legal training for SMMEs.

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 offer a number of SMME Legal Masterclasses covering matters impacting SMMEs such as: 

•Corporate Governance

•Bid Readiness 

•Effective Contracting: Risk Identification and Mitigation

•Introduction to Funding and Security Considerations Debt Collection and Distressed Companies

•Legal due diligence

We also work with our clients in identifying specific knowledge gaps in order to develop bespoke material based on client needs.

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.
