I am passionate about

Actions

Co-Founder and Co-CEO of a non-profit, imagine.nation. We focus on change through education across the following spectrums: 1. Social entrepreneurship Aim: Impart our knowledge and passion for business via a social entrepreneurship programme that empowers unemployed would-be bread winners to provide for their families; 2. Tech education Aim: Lower the barriers to quality education through implementing and monitoring the world-renowned Khan Academy in orphanages in some of South Africa’s least privileged areas; 3. Formative year education and early stage upliftment Aim: Create safe, healthy learning environments by building classrooms and providing curriculum support. Formative year education is of critical importance yet access to quality material in a healthy learning environment is a rarity in rural South Africa. My passion in this area led me to wanting to build safe, healthy learning environments for the children aged 3-6 years old. Since attending One Young World in 2015, I have built the first two crèches and look forward to many more in the future.
