About the development initiative

TDI was established in 2005 to provide a range of professional services to multinational companies, governmental and non-governmental organisations. To date, TDI has successfully undertaken over 80 projects in Angola, DRC, Mali, Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Togo, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Côte d’Ivoire and most recently, the Central African Republic.


Amongst other achievements, TDI has cleared over 26 600 km of routes and roads, removed over 84, 000 items of unexploded ordnance, safely destroyed over 470 tonnes of unserviceable and obsolete munitions and provided risk education to over 240 000 local people.


TDI considers each contract’s unique parameters and terrain in order to provide the appropriate and necessary tools to get the job done efficiently, cost effectively and safely.
