Our Work

Why South Africa?

South Africa is a vibrant country whose people are continuously working towards improving health and education outcomes. Organizations, institutions, individuals and the government all recognize the urgent need to improve access to education and healthcare for all of South Africa’s citizens, creating an environment ripe for collaboration and sustainable solutions. We are proud to work with our partners to make positive change, by bringing innovative and scalable solutions to reality.

Playing Our Part

South Africa Partners serves as a hub for spokes of advocacy and action, rolling all stakeholders toward a defined goal. For over 20 years, we have helped partners summon sufficient momentum to propel a solution up and over the tipping point to sweeping change. The solutions we cultivate, pilot, scale and sustain are supported by research and are suitable for low-resourced settings in South Africa.
