The South African Institute of Black Property Practitioners (SAIBPP) is a South African-based non-profit organisation tasked with advocating for and facilitating socio-economic transformation within the property sector and built environment. Now in its 22nd year of existence, SAIBPP is a well-established entity that has been instrumental in shaping key national policy pertaining to B-BBEE legislation and driving SMME development in the property sector and continues to lead the charge in this regard.
SAIBPP runs numerous programmes that aim to address the root causes of low (less than 10%) black participation in the South African commercial property sector, with a primary focus on skills development, enterprise development, and policy formation. Through our various programmes, events and strong relationships with the public sector and the business community at large, SAIBPP aim to ensure equitable representation and meaningful participation in the property industry for those who have been historically denied access to the sector through exclusionary legislative and economic policies.
The SAIBPP Bursary Fund, which is now in its 4th year,was created to enable access to tertiary education for aspiring and current students with financial need who are pursuing full-time studies in property or related studies.
