who we are
Sarita Ranchod and Sonja Boezak form the core under the rainbow team. We've been collaborating for nearly twenty years and value connecting dots, thinking and crafting strategically, making lateral connections,
and bringing energy and compassion into how we approach our work.
We provide tailored services to organisations and movements to craft transformative, creative strategies, processes and approaches for achieving positive change in the worlds we live in.
We foreground listening attentively, with all of ourselves; every person's innate capacity for creativity; and the knowledge that we are all experts at our own lives, in how we engage with people and organisations to get to the heart of the matter, whatever it may be.
