About us

Over the last five years, the HiiL Innovation Hub Southern Africa has developed a unique understanding of what works and how to create change in a difficult but essential sector.

We deliver programmes at all stages of the innovation pipeline, from ideation, to incubation, to acceleration and scale-up. Our toolkit draws heavily on design thinking and lean startup methodology, and we have hosted hackathons, conferences and many workshops specifically aimed at tacking the region’s toughest justice problems. Our network of partners and justice innovators is constantly growing.

Our work is data-led. HiiL is a global leader in the measurement of justice problems and the impact of proposed solutions. Everything we do is measured by outcomes, not the amount of money spent. What matters to us is people-centric justice innovation that makes a real difference to ordinary people’s lives.

Our methodology is proven, and we work closely with donor partners and corporate CSI programmes to deliver real impact.

Meaningful access to justice is essential for economic and social development. If you share our values and goals, and would like to find out more about how you can work with the HiiL Innovation Hub, please contact us using the information below.
