Who are our longest serving partners?

We are honoured to have worked with Rhodes University’s Environmental Learning Research Centre (ELRC) since 2013. During this time, we have collaborated on several websites within various projects and with different teams. Having now worked on more than a dozen sites, these are some of the highlights that are still publicly available.

Much of our initial work with the ELRC was creating brochure-style websites that provide users with information and resources about projects in interactive formats. The websites we built for Amanzi for Food, EEASA, Food for Us, Fundisa for Change, Green Skills, LBCIN and T-learning all connect people from across the globe and distil a wealth of knowledge into clear and concise sites that are easily navigated.

When our service offering naturally evolved to include online course websites, the ELRC were the first to take this next step with us with the Green Skills Course. Since then, and with the forced shift in teaching caused by the pandemic, we’ve expanded their learning platform to include courses for EWSETA, Fundisa for Change, The Tsitsa Project, as well as Amanzi for Food’s own online course.

“Pomegranite are a talented team, who are also very professional and reliable. They offer clear guidelines for those wanting to work with them, and also reasonable quotations. They are, however, also flexible, and have a mechanism that allows them to accommodate extra work should it be required, but they always offer a pre-work quotation so that one is not left in the dark as to anticipated costs or run-over costs.

In addition to their professionalism, they are also creative and knowledgeable on how to get the best out of the digital environment in ways that match the purpose of their clients. They have assisted us to develop highly professional and sophisticated online presences for our range of collaborative programmes.

Through this, they have deepened and enriched not just out our global impact via our online presence, but also helped us deepen and enrich our practice in education and social development through their support. This has helped us to re-imagine how we interact with our local and global partners through different media and communications technologies, and how we reflexively develop and adjust our communication strategies to accommodate socioeconomic and political changes in our ever-changing cultural climate. They also offer very helpful training to staff who can then take over the regular platform management, and are willing to do this whenever needed.”
