Sisonke These are the stories of our commitment to Africa.

Africa is changing every day. But what matters to her people, never will.

Every sunrise brings more stories of community heroes, unwavering support against the odds and people with a passion to help those who need it most. And every day we witness the way that people and communities across the continent overcome the impossible and work together to rewrite our shared future.

These success stories are what inspired our documentaries.

These are stories of hope, of perseverance and the sheer will to innovate, overcome and thrive in the face of challenges and adversity. Stories that demonstrate how we are here for you – and for all those who continue working for Africa, and her people’s future.

The #Sisonke competition we launched in March invited all community-minded people to send us a short video clip to show us how they were making a positive impact during these difficult Covid times. Watch the winner videos here.

Choose to Vaccinate. Protect Tomorrow

How does the vaccine work? Is it safe? Are there side effects? Why should I get vaccinated? Will it work? These are some of the questions we all ask.
