Cape Town-based initiative, Partners for Possibility has won the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) Award.
The initiative focuses on partnering business leaders who have knowledge and experience with school principals from under-resourced communities who are keen to learn from them.
Dr Louise Van Rhyn, Founder and CEO at Partners For Possibility Project says the project makes sure that both the business leaders and school principals learn from each other to build a better educational system in their communities.
