The Foundation

Making the world a better place

This guiding principle is embedded in Nkgwete’s core values. CEO Siddika Osman firmly believes our success is directly tied to our being a values-driven organisation.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Nkgwete Foundation’s objectives are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), so that we can collectively contribute to a better world and make a difference to humanity at large.

Nkgwete has chosen to focus on the following, based on the needs identified in the UN SDGs:

Basic human needs

Water is life, and a basic human need. Our focus is on providing access to water in rural areas in South Africa and Africa.

Learning and digital skills development

We provide underprivileged schools with computers so that children are exposed to technology, and we train teachers to use tech in the classroom.

Women in tech

We encourage young females to pursue careers in STEM through providing internship opportunities, mentoring and coaching.

Job creation and economic growth

We are committed to creating employment opportunities, as jobs are key to poverty alleviation and economic growth.

Nkgwete IT Solutions understands that we have a responsibility to humanity, society and country.

The Foundation measures and monitors our outcomes, ensuring that we make a positive impact on society and our country, and that we take our organisation from success to significance.
