Impact Sourcing Africa is a purpose-led, full-service outsourcing company specialising in BPO services. We specifically focus on impact sourcing in order to offer companies that partner with us the opportunity to build more inclusive global supply chains through their BPO requirements.

Impact Sourcing Africa was intentionally designed for measurable job creation through skills development.

Our business started with Impact Sourcing as its key strategy.

Our goal was, and still is, to measurably move previously disadvantaged individuals and people with disabilities out of poverty by creating secure productive employment in the BPO sector.

Providing maximum positive impact while ensuring we have the resources needed to scale and meet our client’s needs, we are growing into a BPO powerhouse that’s providing opportunities to those who need it the most.

How can I get involved?

“South Africa is the largest business process outsourcing (BPO) market in Africa and a vast majority of the entry level agents are from disadvantaged backgrounds. Impact Sourcing is a global opportunity, which could completely transform the outsourcing sector.”

The Rockefeller Foundation

Impact Sourcing is a business practice where a company prioritises suppliers that intentionally hire and provide career development opportunities to people who otherwise have limited prospects for formal employment.

Giving underprivileged individuals valuable work opportunities.

Providing a solid start for young people – specially those with disabilities – where they can build their careers and the confidence to navigate through their lives effectively.

Positive impact on the community: previously disadvantaged youth are equipped with critical skills, empowering them to help improve the lives of the families they support and the communities in which they live.

Increasing youth employment: Impact Sourcing Africa aims to contribute to the economy of South Africa by ensuring our workforce has the necessary skills to be employable, flexible and adaptable.

South Africa needs a new story: new faces and new career pathways for our youth. Impact Sourcing Africa is creating that pathway.

There are over 20 million young people in South Africa. That’s a generation full of untapped potential. Where others see hopelessness, we see hope. Where others see disability, we see ability.
