Naspers Labs is our flagship social impact project designed to transform and launch South Africa’s unemployed youth into economic activity.

Building on our experience in technology-enabled learning and development businesses, and partnering with local expertise in the youth development sector, our ambition is to open the closed doors that stand between a young unemployed person and his or her first employment opportunity.

The project blends physical space (a “Lab”) with a bespoke online learning and development platform that strikes at the heart of communities most affected by unemployment and poverty. 

The three pillars of Naspers Labs that trigger youth transformation are:


Personalised learning

Providing tailored learning and development to each beneficiary through an adaptive online learning and development platform that includes hard and soft skills

Physical spaces (a “Lab”)

Using the unique locally-developed socio-economic model that has been tried and tested by our community social enterprise partner RLabs, our Labs are situated in communities where unemployed young people live

Providing economic entry

Through a nationwide partner network we match beneficiaries with opportunities for work while also unlocking the potential of township economies by supporting and incubating new youth-driven micro- and small businesses to absorb young graduates
