Makgofe Moagi

“I believe in a purpose led existence. To be, is not enough. If I can have all the success but never change a life for the better, I don’t know if I want success at all. My vision is to work and move with a purpose.”

From a young age, Makgofe Moagi has had a vision to better the lives of those around her. Having grown up in the small mining town of Phalaborwa in Limpopo,  she began her philanthropic spirit of making a difference and helped children in impoverished communities.

Today, a successful actress, television presenter, businesswoman and mistress of ceremonies, she has become a multifaceted force to be reckoned with, as a passionate philanthropist and change agent.

The entertainer

Makgofe has over two decades of experience in all round entertaining, from acting, television advertisement cameos, modelling and voice-over work for some of the country’s most notable brands, such as banking titan FNB,  FMCG brand Kellogg’s, telecommunications giant MTN, South Africa’s electricity provider Eskom and SAFM- to name but a few. Today, Makgofe is most fondly known for her role as Charity Ramabu in the popular drama series Skeem Saam, which boasts over 5 million viewers every weekday.

The businesswoman

Not only talented but with a sharp instinct for business, Makgofe is the owner of various business interests across the board. She co-owns SelMak- a wellness and healthcare facility that promotes a homeopathic approach in healing operating in Phalaborwa. She also serves as Executive Producer of In The Spotlight With Makgofe; a talk-show that covers a cocktail of topics that affect society at large – produced under the umbrella of Serurubele Pictures.

The philanthropist

An advocate for human rights, especially women and youth empowerment, Makgofe is the Managing Director and Founder of the MDM Foundation- a family-run entity that gives back and “pays it forward” in her hometown of Limpopo. The foundation focuses on health and educational development of children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, empowering and motivating them from a grassroots level.

“I firmly believe we are blessed to be a blessing, so I strive to find a way to plant seeds wherever and with whomever I make contact. It’s like what we are taught in John 13:15 about being a good example. That’s what it’s all about.”
