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 reduce inequality with engineering and design.

Why Minazi?


We are really passionate about sustainable development! At Minazi, we believe that truly impactful solutions have economic and environmental sustainability at the forefront of design. We’re a certified social enterprise registered in the UK with a global outreach. 

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.

Innovation with simplicity

We believe that the best innovation is often the simplest. To do this, we follow system thinking approaches that ensure that we are not just looking at the most direct stakeholders but we’re also considering the entire ecosystem of the problem itself.
