Casidra’s mission is to maximise agricultural and economic development opportunities in rural communities through project management excellence. Its aim is to deliver quality work, and its ultimate goal is the sustainable impact of each project within the context of working in rural communities.
Casidra renders project management services to departments within the Western Cape Government, local authorities, businesses, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), community-based organisations (CBOs), academic institutions, other governmental agencies, and international assistance institutions. As the official implementing agent for the Western Cape Government, development projects are planned and implemented by Casidra. Its ability and skills, ground level involvement in communities, proven track record, and sound financial record-keeping, reporting and auditing make Casidra the preferred implementing agent.
Casidra's strategic outcome-orientated goals are to: provide management services to the Western Cape Department of Agriculture to achieve their goals; give support to local economic and business development initiatives in rural areas in order to create and facilitate an enabling environment and facilitate economic growth and job creation by promoting the implementation of green initiatives through providing economic support and mentoring; manage resources effectively and ensure good corporate governance to achieve an unqualified audit in each financial year; develop and implement the Casidra Development Model by 2020; maintain and expand project management capability as implementing agent in general through project management training and information systems; and develop and grow new markets on a cost-recovery basis at an annual rate of 3%.
