Zoe-Life Organisational Structure

Zoë-Life operates under two legal entities, namely

  • a Black Owned Closed Corporation (SMT Health Solutions cc t/a Zoë-Life) and
  • a Not for Profit Company – Zoë-Life Innovative Solutions (NPC)

Using these two legal entities makes it possible to engender a culture of Trade and Service Delivery, whilst also making it possible for donors to benefit from non-profit benefits.

Zoë-Life cc trades in Training, Resource Development, Workplace Wellness and Organisational Development.

Zoe-life Innovative Solutions NPC provides services and technical support to development and social transformation projects, predominantly in the areas of Child Health and Development, Education and HIV.

Finance functions are managed using PASTEL Software, ESS and rigorous processes to validate employee time allocations to various projects.

All project outcomes are tracked and monitored according to M&E Logical frameworks, clear deliverables and timelines.
