South African Heroes is an initiative created by eMedia Holdings to profile individuals who go the extra mile to contribute to their communities. We believe that an important part of developing a South African identity, pride and patriotism is ensuring that all South Africans have faith in their fellow men and women, whether they work in public institutions or serve the greater good through their own personal and financial sacrifices. We are on a mission to find the inspiring unsung heroes of our nation and honor them by filming and sharing their stories daily on our e.tv and eNCA television channels.
