The Open Society Foundation for South Africa (OSF-SA) is committed to promoting the values, institutions, and practices of an open, non-racial and non-sexist, democratic, civil society.
We are part of the Open Society Foundations network which includes these other African organisations: OSISA, OSIWA, and OSIEA.
Our vision is for a just, equitable and inclusive South Africa where the rights enshrined in our Constitution are protected and realised. We are committed to utilising our assets and resources to empower people to actively participate in the democratic process through our grant making, advocacy, research convening and communications roles; and to help the public, private and civil society sectors work together to advance socioeconomic progress and social cohesion.
Our current focus areas include Environmental Rights, Civil and Political Rights, Social and Economic Rights and supporting Media Freedom and Digital Rights.
