Ruliv is a Non-Profit Public Benefit Organisation facilitating all facets of rural and urban socio-economic development activities including proposal development, process facilitation, programme planning and design, implementation and financial management and monitoring and evaluation. Our team of highly experienced, multi-disciplinary professionals provides such support services to a diverse range of clients, focussing on village-based community development organisations, CBO’s, NGO’s, but also including businesses, local and district municipalities, provincial and national government, state agencies and international development agencies. Ruliv emanated from a bilateral agreement between the governments of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of South Africa. This was then expressed as an activity of the Office of the Premier (OTP) in the Eastern Cape Province, as – “The Promotion of Rural Livelihoods Programme”, under the authority of the Programmes, Research and Policy Development Branch.
