The PPP forms part of government's ongoing efforts to connect directly with communities in order to enable and facilitate public participation.

The Minister will visit schools and engage directly with staff and learners. Education is one of government's priorities and a considerable amount of government resources are channelled towards ensuring that provinces improve their performance and contribution towards skills development.

Minister Nkoana-Mashabane's last PPP was held in December 2015 in Winterveldt, north of Pretoria, where she donated a house to a destitute family after having witnessed their dire living conditions on a prior PPP in the area.

About The Project

South Africa's conduct of international relations, especially its role in international organisations like the UN Security Council, its choice of strategic partnerships, its leadership role in Africa, its public engagement and foreign policy decision making, has been intensely debated in the recent past. The FPA programme aims to provide a nuanced analysis and facilitate a structured discussion of South Africa's foreign policy in a changing world environment for purposes of informing its future direction.

Aims and Objectives of The Project

The purpose of this focus area is to unpack the extent to which the policy in its making, its nature and its application constitutes a principled and pragmatic response to a complex international environment. In doing so, we hope to be guided by an objective to promote a foreign policy that positions SA as a responsible global citizen committed to building bridges between various power blocs for the benefit of Africa and South Africans.
