Produced by One Man And His Dog Films with Executive Producer, Kgomotso Matsunyane at the helm, Rise is an inter-generational multi-host lifestyle show aimed at young women between the ages of 14-25 years.

The dynamic hosts Kgomotso Matsunyane and Lebo Ramafoko are passionate about changing perceptions and social behavior. They are joined by newcomers, Khanysile Mazibuko (19) and Nyiko Shikwambane (23). The Soul City Institute embarked on intensive research which indicated that young women needed more support. While the South African national HIV infection rate has decreased in the last year, the infection rate among young women has increased. The Rise Young Women's Clubs will be rolled out across the country to help young women to find support among their peers and receive information about health and lifestyle.

The show will deal with pertinent topics including the following: culture, informal settlements, unplanned pregnancy, cycles of abuse, the consequences of alcohol, transactional sex and body image.
