Who we are

Founded in 2016, Watipa is a social enterprise working to enable equal societies, just development and equal health for all. We provide tailored consultancy services to inform and catalyse positive social change. All our profits and 10% of our consultants’ earnings go to support Watipa’s youth scholarship and mentorship programmes across sub-Saharan Africa. 

Watipa is named after our friend in Malawi (pictured). Watipa, our namesake, embodies courage, determination and hope for a better, just and more equal future.  In Tumbuka, her local language, Watipa literally means ‘has been provided for.’ Watipa is now in secondary school and pursuing her own education. She hopes to one day help develop her local community.
