Ajabu Advisors is a consulting group of experienced practitioners committed to social change in a variety of sectors.
We help organizations to plan, monitor, and evaluate their work. Our people have particular experience in setting up and running grantmaking programs and programs that support civil society partners.
We understand that effective social change requires leadership from communities, grassroots organizations, local and national governments, and international organizations, all adding up to social transformation. We use planning and evaluation tools consistent with a systems approach. As experienced managers, our approaches produce practical recommendations that can be implemented right away.
We bring decades of experience on every continent, helping people who work on complex social problems. Our approaches incorporate tools for systemic thinking and working across organizational boundaries, which are critical for addressing the wicked problems we face today.
Ajabu means Wonder in Kiswahili. It suggests to us the possibilities and promise of a better future.
