Amazing things Kamogelo's made
Outside of having co-founded and consulted on various ventures, my most proud achievement was in co-creating a non-profit organisation that focused on fostering volunteerism amongst urbane youth (middle – upper class), primarily channeling youth living within or else the surrounding areas of major metropolitan cities within South Africa to their nearest destitute areas. In the organisation’s lifecycle, it grew significantly in membership, boasting a membership of over 120k (active) members, with a combined total number of 5,7 million community hours contributed to various projects, e.g. tutoring, mentorship, refurbishment, collection drives, emergency relief drives, fundraising events, etc. running 48 projects per-annum.

In its lifespan, the organisation was also able to raise over $5,5 million in fundraising and PR value and cement it's relationship as an official founding partner of the Nelson Mandela International Day.
