The comedian started his very own non-profit organisation, The Trevor Noah Foundation, which aims to help provide the youth of South Africa with the education, life skills, and social capital necessary to pursue further opportunities upon graduating high school or matric.

The Trevor Noah Foundation has helped change the lives of 6,000 learners and 500 teachers, as well as countless families within various communities.
