Partners for Possibility (PfP)

Public Relations and communications agency

A project which we believe can assist to build a better society is Partners for Possibility (PfP).


PfP is a creative solution to South Africa' education crisis - it is a co-action, co-learning partnership between School Principals and Business Leaders, enabling social cohesion through partnerships, and empowering Principals to become change leaders in their schools and communities. The PfP Programme facilitates cross-sectoral reciprocal partnerships between Business, Government and the Social Sector.


The PfP Programme was founded in 2010 when Louise van Rhyn (Director and Founder), became the first Business Leader to partner with a Principal in an effort to improve a school's education outcomes.


The PfP initiative speaks to the idea that enhancing the quality of education, improving the school environment and encouraging engagement between parents and teachers are meaningful and attainable goals that would provide an upward spiral of real change in society.


By placing the school at the centre of community PfP believes that significant transformation can be achieved in the education sector.
