About Minazi

Minazi Consulting is a design and engineering social enterprise based in London, United Kingdom. Minazi was founded in 2021 with the aim to develop technological solutions for non-profits and social enterprises to further increase the size and extent of their impact. This is because we believe that barriers such as limited awareness, expertise and budgets should not hinder organisations from delivering long term, sustainable solutions. 

 

Central to Minazi is a philosophy that aims to elevate social standards in an environmentally sustainable manner for all those within the community by listening and involving the voices of those who we want to empower with our designs. We do this by offering a space for experts, partners and community members to design together and drive the future of development. 

At Minazi, we believe that truly impactful solutions have economic and environmental sustainability at the forefront of design

Our Story

Minazi Consulting is actually named after a small village in Rwanda called Minazi, where the idea for this organisation first began and who’s community has left a deep imprint in the hearts of the co-founders. Prior to co-creating the consultancy, our founders had worked with the community in Minazi for many years. This experience, alongside other experiences working in other community driven projects in the UK and abroad, led to a deep insight: We noticed that engineering has a power to change the status-quo, to bring equality by raising living standards and replenishing the environment. This knowledge is the foundation behind Minazi’s mission: To eliminate inequality with engineering and design.

How we work

Holistic design approach

Our design approach circles around impact. We look at the impact we want to have, our methodology to get there and assess our model against the impact we have achieved – this ensures we are always on track to achieve maximum change.

Environmental focus

Our designs and solutions consider the impact to the environment from the beginning, taking into account the life cycle before critical design decisions are made. This allows us to maximise environmental sustainability and protection.
