In April 2018, he launched ‘The Trevor Noah Foundation’, a youth development initiative that enhances youth preparedness for higher education or entry into the workforce. Noah’s vision is a South Africa that advances because each generation builds and must grow beyond its predecessor.
Through a partnership with Microsoft, the foundation is able to provide under-resourced schools with the opportunity to use technology as a tool to enhance the learning experience, as well as increase digital literacy beyond the classroom.
As part of his UK tour, Trevor Noah will be at Arena Birmingham on Saturday 23rd May 2020.
