About Us

Raise Your Hand is an on-going SABC initiative that calls on all South Africans to take part in the education of our country’s children .Based on the premise that each of us can make a difference in our own communities, no matter how small and once that action gathers momentum, we improve our country’s outlook, one future leader at a time. Maybe it is donating books. Or devoting a few hours a month to someone who needs help to understanding something you grasped easily. Maybe it’s painting a blackboard or fixing part of a broken school bus. There are thousands of ways to help, not all of them academic, but all invaluable. Everyone has a part to play.
