Thanks to your generosity, Symphonia for South Africa has secured some of the funding we need to launch a Partners for Possibility (PfP) Leadership Circle for school principals of under-served schools in Limpopo. We are concentrating on the Polokwane area and are currently gearing up to launch a Leadership Circle of 8 – 10 school principals in May.
Our preparation includes securing the rest of the funding we need for the school principals to complete the one-year PfP programme. We are also inviting applications from school principals who are interested in the program and determined to turn their schools around in the interest of improved learner outcomes and putting their schools at the centre of their communities.
Our liaison staff are hosting information sessions and engaging with local business leaders to enrol them onto the program too. The business leaders will each be partnered with a school principal in a co-action, co-learning partnership. This partnership structure is fundamental to the success of the principal leadership development and support program. It enables social cohesion and empowers school principals to become change agents in their schools and communities.
Recently Symphonia for South Africa received the #97 position in the NGO Advisor’s rankings of the Top500 Best NGOs in the world and are the only South African organisation in the Top 100 list. The rankings evaluate non-profit organisations against a comprehensive set of criteria. These include sustainability, transparency and accountability, impact measurement, independence from government and corporations, funding resilience and their innovation ratio. We are humbled and delighted with this ranking and believe it proves the efficacy of our program.
We look forward to sharing an update on our progress in Limpopo soon. Thank you again for your valued support
