Happy New Year to all our From-the-Field readers! 2017 is proving to be a great year as PPI-SA is one step away from selecting the young leaders who will be coaches for 2017. Just this past Monday, PPI-SA hosted the second round of interviews for all the applicants. And, in true PPI style, the proceedings started on the basketball court.  There were over 25 applicants present with a few returning coaches. The interview process has been happening since December 2016, all thanks to  the PPI-SA HR Manager, Mtu Zulu and the rest of the PPI-SA staff members for really working together tirelessly to ensure that by the time programing commences in schools on the 14th of February , there is a dream team ready to coach!

Moreover, when the 2017 coaches are selected they will be participating in 5 day long orientation camp funded by Laureus.  This will give new coaches the opportunity to get inducted into the PPI family as well as get to know the programme a little more.

PPI-SA would also love to announce the appointment of, the newly created position of the Local Fellow, to Thobani “African Panda” Khumalo. Thobani will be working closely with the Strategy & Operations to manage and coordinate all programs. PPI-SA is so excited to have Thobani on a full time basis and look forward to see his growth and success in the year ahead.
