Welcome to DDP
The Democracy Development Program NPC (DDP) was initiated in 1993 as a partner project of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation of Germany. For the last 21 years it has been a non-partisan, non-profit organisation, supporting capacity building on governance and civil society levels to ensure that both are empowered for meaningful participation in South Africa’s social transformation.
Since its inception, DDP has been committed to the promotion of the following principles:
sustainable democracy and good governance
political awareness and citizen participation
tolerance and a culture of human rights
decentralised and pluralist government.
We achieve this by:
creating platforms for civil society engagement with all spheres of government
raising awareness of constitutional rights and obligations
empowering the youth
monitoring, analysing and responding to governmental policies and legislations.
