Mhani Gingi – when translated into English – stands for a caring, industrious woman who is always looking for lasting solutions to social problems. Mhani Gingi is a non-profit organization that strives to provide innovative business solutions which are sustainable and profitable, and contribute towards alleviating poverty in South Africa.

The Mhani Gingi network was established in 2006 by founding director Lillian Masebenza. There are three main branches of this organization: Network Initiatives, Social Responsibility, and The Flagship. Mhani Gingi has over 250 children enrolled in early learning centers, 25 women working in community gardens, and over 500 network members who have successfully started their own businesses. Mhani Gingi does this by providing business training, skills development, and mentorship.

Mhani Gingi uses the Power of the Collective to maximize networking, and tailor-make integrated skills development training according to the collective strengths and skills of the members. The main focus is currently on the province of the Western Cape, specializing on the townships surrounding Cape Town.
