Words of Support for Project People Foundation
“It is our utmost belief that it will only be through efforts such as those of Project People Foundation that we can continue to advance the socio-economic development of our people. Through collaboration between government, the private sector and a full range of civil society formations, domestic and international, that we can successfully address the challenges we face today. We can continue to further the values espoused by the iconic Nelson Mandela, in turning this into a better world to live in.”
- George Monyemangene, South Africa Consul General
"Project People Foundation has touched the lives of South Africans, old and young alike in so many ways. We are grateful for their continued work in South Africa and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Project People Foundation on the work it has embarked on in South Africa. It is through the support of organizations such as PPF that South Africa will secure its future and development. PPF truly represents the principles of Batho Pele: creating a better life for all South Africans and putting people first."
- Fikile Magubane, former South African Consul General
"I know these are difficult times for Americans, but I want to just say that however difficult they may be there, you need but walk the paths I walk everyday [in South Africa] to see how much more dreadful life is for people here, especially women and children. With the exception of those who have been the beneficiaries of the generosity and dedication of organizations likes PPF, there has been no rising tide to lift the boats of the millions of women and children."
- Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Journalist and CNN South African Correspondent
"When one part of our world is under siege, the privileged part --- our part --- must respond. It's terribly important, in fighting the AIDS pandemic, to show support for the remarkably courageous struggle for survival that envelops the southern part of the African continent. Whether it's PPF's Black Doll project, or income generating projects, or twinning of computer technology, it all forms a bond of human solidarity in the face of the virus. One day that solidarity will end the carnage and subdue this dreadful plague. In the meantime, the women and children of Africa know that they have friends in North America on whom they can count, and one of the best of those friends is the Project People Foundation."
