He seeks to make positive contributions to society in different spheres of influence that he finds himself. He founded an NPO called Asikhulumeni in 2020 which to combat the growing rate of gender-based violence in South Africa. It does so by having conversations on the issue in high schools across South Africa, focusing on young boys, whose mindsets it aims to challenge by empowering them with the knowledge necessary to grow, think, and do better.
