We are proud to say that the SayPro story has begun in South Africa. Through SayPro, the youth of South Africa and especially the youth communities in townships have been given a voice and an opportunity to change society for the better. As we speak, we are seeing thousands of young people engaging with SayPro’s online platform. They are using it as a way to share ideas and express their opinions on important issues facing our country today.” -Richard

We hope these initiatives encourage new ideas about yourself and your place in the world. On behalf of our staff and volunteers from across Southern Africa, we say congratulations on embarking on this exciting journey!
SayPro is a youth-led social reality project that aims to build strong and sustainable communities by providing mentorship, education and job creation opportunities for marginalized youth.
SayPro was founded in 2016 by South Africa’s most successful digital entrepreneur, Zodwa Wabantu. Zodwa launched SayPro to help young people in the country realize their dreams of becoming self-sufficient citizens through entrepreneurship. What started as a Facebook group has now become a full-fledged community with over 200 members. The participants receive mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs and business leaders, gain life skills like communication and problem solving, learn about leadership, team work, and follow up activities. They also get training on how to build businesses with the aim of making money while having fun at it!
