I am passionate aboutAt my core lies a deep passion for social upliftment and empowerment through
education. I am a firm believer that the future of South Africa, particularly
the one that so many fought for, rests on the pillars of education. Education
can come in many forms, all of which share equal importance for an empowered
society. I have been part of education at three primary levels – adulthood
through imparting the technical knowledge I have gained together with my
passion for business via social entrepreneurship programmes, childhood
through rolling out tech education in some of South Africa’s least
privileged areas, and the formative years through building pre-fab crèches,
developing a curriculum and uniting Chartered Accountant Trainees across
Johannesburg to support one single cause through an early childhood
I believe that every person has the ability to change the world in some small
way and I am passionate about delivering that message to as many as possible.

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.
