Welcome to the PPS Foundation: Empowering the future leaders of South Africa, driving community transformation!

The PPS Foundation was established in 2016 with a resolute commitment to advancing various goals, including quality education, gender equality, decent employment, economic growth and industry innovation, as outlined in the United Nation’s sustainable development goals (SDGs). Our primary objective is to enhance access to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) while significantly contributing to the sustainable development of South African communities. Our unwavering motivation is rooted in PPS’s core values of mutuality and collective success. Our mission remains dedicated to nurturing the potential of young people and effecting positive change.

PPS Foundation programmes

Empowering education (block approach)

The PPS Foundation nurtures a culture of learning by offering essential financial assistance, skills, competencies and knowledge.

This support empowers our beneficiaries to access higher education and attain academic qualifications aligned directly with SDG 4 (quality education). This ensures inclusive and equitable access to high-quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Enhancing work readiness

The PPS Foundation has introduced the Learned, Engaged, Accelerated Professionals (LEAP) Work Readiness programme to address the transitional needs of our beneficiaries and graduates as they move from higher education to the workplace.

This programme offers workshops focusing on vital skills for young professionals, including personal branding, communication, CV preparation, interview skills and financial wellness, all tailored to the South African context.

Facilitating transitions

Our mission as the home of graduate professionals is to provide bridging programmes, tools and mechanisms to help beneficiaries transition from secondary to tertiary education and from tertiary education to the workplace.

This intervention supports SDG 9 (industry, innovation, and infrastructure) by fostering inclusive industrialisation and innovation.

Nurturing potential

We offer comprehensive programmes such as the Bursary Programme, University Support Programme, the Graduate Internship Development Programme and Professionals Connect, a digital platform providing users with relevant industry-specific information and job and mentorship opportunities.

Furthermore, we have Employee and Member Volunteerism Programmes and have also partnered with Reality Wellness to support South Africa’s youth by offering wellness interventions to help them navigate life’s challenges. By assisting young people with stress management and helping them find better coping mechanisms, we contribute to SDG 3 (good health and well-being), promoting healthy lives and well-being for individuals of all ages.
