Our Story

We all know that youth is unpredictable and fickle, but Saypro has been trying hard to keep them in check. Operating since 2009, the organisation aims to bring about a change in the lives of youth through various initiatives. At present, Saypro works on programmes that target at least three different age groups: school children from grades 6th-12th; college students with special interests ranging from art & culture to wildlife conservation and robotics; and young graduates who are looking for work opportunities.

Meeting the needs of youth across South Africa is our goal. With SayPro, we are making it happen. Through our programs and initiatives, we are working toward a brighter future for the youth of this country. We offer them opportunities that will help them realize their potential and build a better life for themselves.

SayPro is a non-profit organisation that was established in 2013 with the aim of reducing youth unemployment and empowering young South Africans. Our story is one of dedication and hard work, because we know that young people need opportunities, support, and skills to get the job they want.

We are proud to announce our partnership with Southern Africa Youth Project, one of the largest youth development organisations in South Africa. Together we can make a difference for young people across South Africa!

Our Story: As anyone knows, life’s little ups and downs never seem to stop – and they don’t even feel good while they’re happening! But what if there was an organisation out there that could help you repair your broken heart? SayPro is just that: an organization whose sole purpose is to mend hearts through forgiveness and understanding. While on a mission to bring about global change, SayPro also believes in helping people of all ages get their lives back on track by offering them valuable resources and skills that will help them build brighter futures for themselves.

In short, we’re all about making a positive impact on our world one day at a time!

Our Mission

You see, we aren’t like other NGOs.

We believe in working as one to try and change the world for the better. That is why we come up with sustainable solutions that can be replicated across countries in a way that will make a difference. Not just locally, but globally too.

Meet Our Team

How do you start a project that is all about helping young people? When you are SayPro, the answer just seems to be obvious. The youth group was founded in 2016 by South Africa’s leading youth affairs think tank, Southern Africa Youth Project (SAYPro).

Ask around and it’s easy to find out that SAYPro has been making leaps and bounds towards its aim – changing youth dynamics in South Africa. Today SayPro is one of the largest youth-based NGOs in the world with a strong presence across 19 countries. It is also setting new benchmarks for success through its holistic approach which includes policy advocacy as well as grassroots initiatives like SayPRO Day, our annual nationwide event that brings together youth from different corners of the country to brainstorm on topmost issues affecting them.
