Enriching Lives

We’re committed to uplifting, supporting, and investing in the communities in which we operate

Through our continued investment in long term corporate social initiatives, we strive to enrich lives of Africans.

MultiChoice Talent Factory

The MTF Academy is a tailored, 12-month training programme facilitated at regional academies based in Kenya, Nigeria and Zambia, and headed by industry experts. Working hand-in-hand with local creative organisations, regulatory and government partners across the continent, MultiChoice uses its people, facilities and network to provide young emerging filmmakers with the skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications to help the MTF graduates launch a successful career within the creative industry.

Let’s Play

Through sponsored sports facilities and equipment, as well as coaching clinics, competitions and training, SuperSport encourages young people to take part in healthy activities. Not only does this improve their physical strength, but it’s been proven to strengthen social skills and enhance psychological development. Let’s Play initiatives reach schools and communities across South Africa.

MultiChoice Diski Challenge

The MultiChoice Diski Challenge invests in the future of the beautiful game through a football competition for Premier Soccer League reserve teams, life-skills training for players, broadcasting internships, leadership training for coaches, and the opportunity for community channels on DStv to air the matches for free.

M-Net Magic in Motion

M-Net’s Magic in Motion Academy plays a critical role in developing skills in the film and TV industry and empowering the next generation of storytellers. It gives young South Africans on-the-job training and the opportunity to work with experienced producers for hands-on experience.

SuperSport Rugby Challenge

The SuperSport Rugby Challenge is a rugby tournament in partnership with SA Rugby that aims to re-establish the vital link between club and provincial rugby. The initiative’s mission is to use sport as a platform to develop broadcast talent, while providing a platform for young rugby players to develop as they prepare to play in higher levels of rugby. With free entry to the games, fans from all walks of life get to see their heroes in action.

DStv Eutelsat Star Awards

Africa faces a huge shortage of skills in the realm of science and technology. Through the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards, MultiChoice Africa and Eutelsat Communications are inspiring young people across the continent to become excited, involved and exposed to science and technology; specifically satellite technology. The DStv Eutelsat Star Awards is part of the ongoing partnership between MultiChoice Africa and Eutelsat that started in 1999.

Stop Wildlife Crime Online

Each day, we lose three rhinos to poaching. Our African Elephant numbers decline by 8% annually, and cheetah populations have diminished by 30% over the past 15 years. Cybersecurity experts, Irdeto, have teamed up with the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) in an effort to track wildlife crime online and thereby disrupt the illegal animal trade economy. The partnership will also work with local law enforcement; providing key forensic data to help locate these reprehensible criminals. Irdeto and AWF: using technology for good to safeguard our African heritage.
