Project Management Office Internship at Proudly SA 2017

The Proudly South African Campaign was born out of Socio-economic necessity in 1998 with the Presidential Jobs Summit – under leadership of former South African Pres. Nelson Mandela. It was formed from the international research that was based on the Australian buy local campaign. The same concept was bought here in South Africa to address the issues of Job creation through local investment in local products and services.



The Proudly South African Campaign will encourage the Nation to make personal and organizational contributions to economic growth and prosperity in South Africa, thereby increasing employment opportunities and reinforcing national pride.
