This year, the Open Society Foundation for South Africa celebrates its 25th anniversary. When Open Society Foundations Founder and Chair George Soros first visited the country, while it was still under the apartheid system, South Africa was the epitome of a closed society. And although it's true that the South Africa of today still faces many challenges, it is impossible to deny the stunning changes it has experienced over the past generation. Since its founding, the Open Society Foundation for South Africa has been honored to support all those who have worked so hard to move the country forward—and the Foundation looks forward to spending 25 more years supporting South Africa as it fulfills its boundless promise.
