BIOGRAPHY
As Project Quality Assurance Engineer, during the construction of a number of coal-driven power stations in South Africa, Peter was exposed to most trades and professions while developing quality procedures used in the construction process.

The vision he had of "connecting" Africa, led to the 'birth' of Info Africa in 1992.

After establishing this concept, Peter was once again exposed to empowering and capacitating of our people, as a consultant for the then Northern Province Department of Housing (South Africa), preparing quality procedures for low-cost housing. His passion to address sustainable development needs in Africa became an obsession.

Peter, in his then capacity as a business consultant, assisted emerging PDI's (Previously Disadvantaged Individuals) with realisation of their vision and the establishment of these PDI's in business. He successfully completed a course at the CSIR - Pretoria and holds a title as an accredited assessor for the South African Business Excellence Foundation. This knowledge he now shares with others.

He was an active participant to the Advisory Board for the OECD-NEPAD - Africa Investment Initiative for Growth and Development, where he endeavored to contribute on behalf of the People of Africa.

In 2003 Peter received an award from the Minister of Social Development South Africa, Dr. Zola Skweyiya, for his contribution towards Corporate Social Investment.

Peter’s expertise has made him a well-known personality in Africa. His numerous television, radio and print media interviews and the number of high level conferences and events he has addressed, testifies to the respect he commands in the field of Africa affairs.

"MADE IN AFRICA - FOR AFRICA"

THE FOUNDATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA
is a private, 'not-for-profit', non-membership, organisation actively serving Africa by promoting processes conducive to sustainable development ......throughout Africa - with the emphasis on sustainability!
This organisation is currently rated as one of the most proactive Sustainable Business Development Organisations in Africa!
Serving Africa since 1999.

We are actively involved with promoting the
AFRICAN RENEWAL PROGRAMME

However -
We firmly believe that sustainable development is a process that must start from within - Africa needs to "partner" with herself first!
We also prefer the phrase: "Lets create wealth" rather than "Lets alleviate poverty"
Our initiatives include enabler 'showcasing'; networking opportunities; business opportunities; investment opportunities; promotion of special projects; dissemination of business information; joint venture initiatives and a range of value added services - all to serve

AFRICA!

We facilitate processes, including networking sessions that would lead to sustainable development, hence our motto:
"Nothing is as ‘powerful’ as the Human Network"

"Sustainable Development is the action and/or act of bringing people and/or processes into position for the effective use in the support and/or delivery of efforts, conducts and the cause!"

All our efforts are privately funded!
