In 2012, I founded Project Ignition an organization that focuses on youth resilience through working on emotional, social and economic capability. Through this organization I have worked with more than 1000 youth across the Western Cape. The work includes delivery of cutting edge programs and resources to youth themselves and to organizations working with youth. In 2015, I won the prestigious Women in Philanthropy Award for excellence in youth development.

Since 2014, I have been working on a project to get young people to increase their economic and financial capability. In 2016, I was awarded a Bertha Scholarship to refine this area of work. This gave rise to what is now called the MoneyWyze Movement. The work involves setting up youth clubs across South Africa that support young people with making money, working with money and saving money. For more information see: www.moneywyze.co.za
IKHALA WOMEN’S INVESTMENT HOLDINGS
I am also a founding member and co-Chairperson of Ikhala Women’s Investment Holdings. Ikhala is a collective of South African women committed to wealth creation and social justice. Ikhala was established in February 2017 with the aim of building a strong investment vehicle for women and through this build wealth for members and contribute to a better society. As a group, we leverages our core strength, which is the diverse skills, talents, and passions of our members, as a strategic resource to advance an agenda that explores wealth creation as well as contribute towards sustainable social development. Ikhala’s primary focus is strategic investments, self-empowerment of members and creation and fostering of spaces and connections that encourage and support other women to join in wealth creation.
