At Strhive, we are dedicated to fostering a greater impact through learning and collaboration, empowering organisations to unlock their full potential through effective knowledge management and learning.

"Transforming international development by optimising work processes and embracing the power of learning."


In the realm of international development organisations, abundant valuable knowledge and experiences often go untapped. The vital process of reflecting on existing knowledge and applying lessons learned can be lost amidst the demands of everyday work. This oversight can lead to missed opportunities for optimising work processes and avoiding pitfalls. Despite the prevalent desire to avoid reinventing the wheel, the challenges of effectively managing knowledge and learning from it persist.

Strhive was founded to address these challenges, working with organisations to establish effective, integrated learning frameworks that harness the power of knowledge and learning.

Strhive was nominated for ‘The Hague Innovators 2022’ Challenge for ideas that help achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by the Impact City competition in the Netherlands. With the launch of Propel, Strhive continues to push boundaries in the international development sector, providing key services such as:

Our core team, led by founders Sarah Abdelatif and Andrés Roure Cuzzoni, has vast experience in international organizations management, innovation, data solutions for development, and program management. As Strhive grows, we aim to expand our team and operations to maximise our impact in development and beyond.

Our vision at Strhive is to create a meaningful and lasting impact in the international development sector by embracing learning and collaboration, enabling organisations to thrive and contribute to a more sustainable world. We also collaborate with external consultants for exceptional results as we drive Strhive’s mission to revolutionise organizational learning.
