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, Zambia and South Africa, and headed by industry experts. Working hand-in-hand with local and international 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. Through the MTF Academies we have empowered 206 emerging filmmakers from 14 countries across the continent. Collectively they have produced 30 Movies and 16 short films for broadcast on M-Net local channels and Showmax as well as 7 public service announcements (PSA) for the United Nations #PledgetoPause campaign.

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.

DStv Diski Challenge

The DStv 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.

DStv Schools Netball Challenge

The DSNC is a partnership between Multichoice and SA Schools Netball which aims to unearth the next generation of Spar Proteas. It aims to give all girls across the country whether it be in far-flung rural areas, local suburbs and townships an equal opportunity to showcase their skills and get to contest the national finals which is a big national event broadcast live on SuperSport. To ensure that all schools (urban and rural) have an equal opportunity to reach the national finals and contest for top honours, the competition is divided into two Streams, Botho (Urban schools) and Ubuntu (Rural Schools).

Youth Employment Service (YES)

As part of its continued commitment to South Africa’s youth, MultiChoice Group has extended its partnership with the Youth Employment Service (YES) and its service providers to assist with the recruitment and training of learners which were recruited across all nine provinces. The YES initiative calls on business to help the government create critical work experience for unemployed youth who would otherwise have had limited opportunities for employment across the country.
