Discovery Committed to Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) put forth by the United Nations is a call to action to end poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequality, increase economic opportunity and preserve our natural resources. Discovery’s RISE program supports this framework for people and the planet and is committed to implementing these goals through our mission to Reduce Inequality and Support Empowerment.
Say It With Stories This Mandela Day
This Mandela Day, Discovery RISE is taking over Discovery Family (channel 136) and Real Time (channel 155) on DStv, with #SavewithStoriesSA relaunching across the channels. Families can tune in on 17th/18th, and 24th/25th July to see South African personalities such as Stacey Fru and Jean de Villiers reading children’s story books out loud.
WE STAND TOGETHER IN SOLIDARITY AGAINST RACISM AND VIOLENCE
Discovery is proud to support organizations like Save the Children and others fighting to Reduce Inequality and Support Empowerment. Our partners at Save the Children reach hundreds of millions of children every year, promoting racial equity and ensuring children have access to the learning and resources they need to succeed in school and life – empowering future generations today.
HELP FAMILIES IN NEED DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS
Coronavirus knows no borders. Life has been turned upside down for everyone in the struggle to contain the virus. Trusted caregivers are under immense pressure. And children are feeling this too. But there is something you can do to help those affected across South Africa. You can help a child continue their education, protect children in unsafe households, and support families who have lost their income.
Reducing Inequality and Supporting Empowerment
Our world is facing unprecedented challenges: a global pandemic; unprecedented food insecurity, social and racial inequality, climate change and emergency situations at every turn. It can be overwhelming to figure out how you can help or even where to start.
Discovery RISE connects our audiences with opportunities to turn compassion into impact, with trusted non-profit partners who specialize in tackling the existential threats of our day and creating meaningful change.
Through a holistic, local, regional and global approach, we help alleviate hunger, protect the planet, support equity, respond to disasters and provide the resources people need to thrive. Together, we multiply our impact. Together, we RISE.
