Friends Tour

South Africa Partners hosts occasional Friends Tours to South Africa. On these one-of-a-kind trips, we share our perspective about the history, opportunities and challenges facing the country. We visit South Africa Partners health and education partnership programs that are building local capacity in the health and education sectors. The Friends Tour also includes visits to historical sites in Johannesburg and Cape Town and opportunities for in-depth interactions with thought leaders. These trips are led by Mary Tiseo, Co-Founder and Executive Director of South Africa Partners.

We build partnerships with purpose.
