Who We Are

South Africa Partners unlocks the collaborative potential between South Africa and the United States for equitable access to healthcare and education.

Our non-profit organization was established in 1997.  Our founders understood the end of legislated apartheid did not mean the end of its impact on the majority of the population.

Our work is based on the philosophy that there is much to be gained from the exchange of ideas between South Africa and the United States. The bridge we’ve built between the two countries has enabled an invaluable transfer of human and financial resources toward building a future where every citizen enjoys the benefits of a just democracy. We believe “it takes a village” – that through collective action, communities build people and social capital for long-lasting impact.
