In 2014, Nunnovation Africa Foundation was formed, founded by Ngwako Ramohlale and Khathu Mashau. Nunnovation’s mission is to: Inform – Educate – Inspire and through the programs we have run, they have managed to train 400 unemployed youth, develop over 100 entrepreneurs and impact over 2500 high school learners.
Her biggest highlight in running Nunnovation has been the Telkom Coding Camp where high school learners from townships, some who had never touched a computer before, were taught to build mobile and web apps. The learners are now using their skills to develop applications that help deal with the community challenges they face such as crime, unemployment and drug abuse.
