Our purpose

Established in South Africa in 2021, G4C Africa is one of the newest chapters of the global non-profit Games for Change.

We strongly believe that games have the potential to do so much more than just entertain. With the purposeful design, games can be catalysts for enhancing education, provoking positive social change and promoting economic growth across the African continent.

Through strategic initiatives and programs, we bring together individuals and organisations who share our vision of fostering communities and driving growth.

Our team

Games for Change is proud to have a dedicated team of accomplished professionals, and thought-leaders focused on inspiring others and pushing boundaries to explore how the world can use games and immersive media for social good.
