Welcome to GM South Africa Foundation

The GM South Africa Foundation - previously the Delta Foundation - is not a grant making organization. The Foundation follows a process of undertaking the project management of innovative education and housing projects in the Eastern Cape, usually within the Nelson Mandela Bay area, and writing up all the lessons learnt in the form of practical implementation guidelines. This information is then shared with interested organizations across the country in order to promote the replication of successful new development models and to influence the State in the formulation of practical policies.
