Trevor Noah has launched a crowdfunding campaign on local donations crowdfunding platform, BackaBuddy, to raise R2 million in a matched giving effort to empower education through his recently launched, Trevor Noah Foundation.
The Trevor Noah Foundation (TNF) was founded last year, with a vision of a South Africa that only advances if each generation builds on the last.
For Trevor, educating our youth is key to this vision becoming a reality. Their aim is achieving a 100% transition rate of the matric students into continued education.
“For me, I’ve come to realize the secret is great teachers. In my life and the lives of many other kids, one great teacher has made all the difference. To this day, business economics and history are my favourite subjects thanks to teachers like Mr. Darby and Mrs. Gold. My favourite teachers were those who engaged me in a way that made me feel like they loved the subjects as much as they wanted me to love it.” – says Noah
