In July 18 2015, she established “The Karabo Mohasoane Foundation” - a foundation that is aimed at creating future leaders by empowering the disadvantaged youth in the community of Finetown, an informal settlement based in the south of Johannesburg. Initiatives successfully done by her foundation include cooking breakfast and lunch on Mandela day on the 18th of July 2015 for over 1000 people in the community including children, revamping the local crèche by fixing broken windows, painting, planting a vegetable garden as well as donating groceries, clothes, blankets and toys for the children that attend the crèche. We also had fun activities throughout the day for the children of the community and gave food hampers to over 100 old-aged and child headed homes in the community.

In September 2015 during National Literature month, the foundation started a campaign to gather education and literature books for Finetown Secondary, Ithubalethu High School and Finetown Primary. They managed to get interviewed and to address the public on mainstream radio Power Fm and YFM at no cost but through approaching the Station Managers and negotiating with them to provide us with the platform to address their listeners. The foundation managed to collect a total of 125 books which we distributed to the three schools.

In 2016, the foundation started a series of ‘Hike for a cause” initiatives- the main aim of this initiative was to hike to collect sanitary pads and at the same time encouraging ahealthy lifestyle through hiking- this has proved to be successful and has seen the volunteers from all walks of life coming to hike for the greater cause of donating sanitary pads to those that are living in poverty.

The foundation continues its work to date in playing a role in impacting lives one day at a time and giving hope to those who have lost hope in our country.
