“The higher the level of education, the higher chance the youth have of creating a future for themselves and collectively, a better South Africa.”  - Trevor Noah

OUR VISION

Our vision is a South Africa that advances because each generation excels beyond its predecessor. In order for this to happen, youth require the tools, skills, and pathways to opportunity required to improve their lives and catalyze change in their communities. With an estimated 3.7 million orphans and vulnerable children and an unemployment rate of approximately 60% for youth under 25, it’s our goal to prevent the most South Africa's most vulnerable youth from slipping through the cracks.

WHO WE ARE

The Trevor Noah Foundation is a Johannesburg-based non-profit organisation that equips orphans and vulnerable youth with the education, life skills, and social capital necessary to pursue further opportunity upon graduating high school or matric.

WHAT WE DO

We achieve this by investing in three priority areas: psycho-social support, skills development, and career guidance. By partnering with government schools, researching innovative approaches, and mobilizing philanthropic capital, we hope to drive sustainable change that improves the lives of the most vulnerable youth in South Africa.

 

We are currently piloting initiatives at a government school in Johannesburg that caters for orphans and children who find themselves outside of the traditional family structure. By providing support in the areas above, we aim to achieve a 100% transition rate of our Grade 12 students into University, TVETs or FETs (technical and vocational institutions). By collecting data and monitoring outcomes, we hope to scale and share learnings with other organisations or even the government.
