About us

The Rivoni Trust is a registered not-for-profit Trust (Registration no. IT NO 709/2011) with the primary objective of providing information and education to underserved and marginalised communities in South Africa.

Where we've come from

The Rivoni Trust was born out of the work and findings of Grounded Media, a specialist developmental and education communications company.

Over the past 15 years Grounded Media gained considerable expertise in reaching and interacting with vulnerable communities in the rural, peri-urban and township areas across the length and breadth of the country.

Grounded Media found there was a need to extend these skills to the non-profit sector, particularly in the use of non-traditional communications channels to deliver appealing, engaging and easily understood content.

Co-founder of Grounded Media, Coco Cachalia, approached like-minded individuals active in the field of developmental and human rights issues to act as trustees, and the Rivoni Trust was formed in 2011.
