Building confidence and inspiring hope in the young learners of South Africa

4th December 2017

Twelve years ago Reggie Brown, PMP, moved his family from the United States to Cape Town, South Africa, where he is now teaching project management skills as life skills to youth in some of the poorest townships.

Day by day Reggie is discovering an amazing truth: Project management education equips people to make their own lives better.

Reggie's students are developing the right skills with the help of the right tools and resources they need to tackle their own unique challenges head-on.

This invaluable principle is true in every classroom and career path.

Project planning taught as a life skill helps students achieve better outcomes from their decisions and increases their self-esteem. Equipped, confident students are now empowered to rise to the challenge of their circumstances.

Thanks to the vision and support of friends like you and the PMI Educational Foundation, Reggie uses no-cost resources from the PMIEF, like Project Management Skills for LifeSM, to equip his students.

This same scenario can be witnessed all around the globe.

With help from PMIEF, teachers are able to teach their students how to plan, think critically, solve problems, communicate, organize, collaborate, be creative and get things done.
