Welcome to DDP
The DDP was initiated in 1993 as a partner project of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation of Germany. For the last 20 years it has been a non-partisan non-profit organisation, supporting capacity building on governance and civil society levels to ensure that both are empowered for meaningful participation in South Africa’s social transformation.
A celebration of Tata Madiba
On the 12th of December 2013, citizens from Durban came together to honour Tata Mandela: to celebrate his life, to share the stories that have inspired us, to offer our gifts of song and poetry in his honour, and to reflect on our own personal commitments inspired by his legacy.
Thank you to all who attended, the love in the room was palpable and a fitting tribute to the man who dedicated his life to uniting South Africans as a single nation.
Thank you also to the Tsogo Sun, New Concepts Sound and Independant Newspapers for the sponsorships which made the event possible.
Tata Mandela - your vision, your warmth and your commitment have inspired every citizen of this country. You are mourned as a lost parent. Your life remains the symbol of what can be done when dedicated people work together for change.
We at DDP commit to working towards your vision of a united South Africa.
