About us

Lusa Social Entrepreneurship Institute was birthed out of 27 years of Community Development experience learned through Lusa Community Chest.

We are a training institute who is passionate about developing people to reach their highest callings for the Greater Good.

Our Focus is on leadership development, business development and community development  in an Africa context.

The courses we offer include Neuro Coaching, Mediation, Leadership Development, Youth Development, Enterprise development and ECD Development.

The Question we pose is: What do you need to reach your full potential? What competencies will help you have a meaningful and fulfilling life?

We remain focused on helping individuals realise their potential.

All our programmes include practical training to ensure that theory becomes experiential learning thereby preparing you for the real world.

We are SETA accredited and a Comensa recognized training provider.  We are also registered with SACE and SACSSP offering CPD points for our registered programmes.
