Catalysts for collective action

Wasafiri, means “travellers” in Swahili, and was inspired by the phrase, “Traveller, there is no path: we make the path as we walk together.” This simple statement evokes the spirit of how we work; as trusted adviser, collaborator and systems-change entrepreneur, relentlessly driven toward transformative action.
