Discovery introduces: Change Drivers, a new video series telling the story of people who dedicate their lives for making a difference in the world. Each of them is tackling a different problem that today's society is facing but all with one commonality: passion.
Change Drivers: Time To Act
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.
Don't Let School Children Fall Behind
We are facing a global education emergency. Discovery and Save the Children work together to ensure children have the learning resources they need to succeed.
Provide relief for families living with hunger
Food insecurity is a global epidemic. Discovery and its partners work to help end childhood hunger by giving families access to the food they need now and effect policy change for generations.
Help provide basic human needs to families affected by natural disasters
Many people around the world are vulnerable to natural disasters but underprivileged communities are particularly at risk to emergency situations such as hurricanes, floods and wildfires. In times of crisis, Discovery responds in times of disaster and crisis around the world to raise awareness and connect our audiences with organizations who provide hands-on support to rebuild communities.
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.
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.
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.
