The man behind the MM

Muako Maepa can be described as a young man with a bright future, who always knew from a very young age that he wanted to be of service to his country and facilitate empowerment opportunities for the youth of South Africa. At the age of 17 years old, during the time he was living in Johannesburg and attending a senior boys boarding school located in the beautiful Midlands, Muako became a young Philanthropist and developed and launched his charitable organinsation, The IlluMMination Foundation, which focuses on human upliftment and football development.

Unquestionably, no ordinary teenager, this athlete at heart with a passion for cooking released a cookbook called “Tell Me What You Eat and I’ll Tell You Who You Are” when he was at the age of 15.

Now, Muako is directing his attention to a division of The IlluMMination Foundation called the Santuako Movement Football clinics, which promotes football development and life skills training within under-developed communities across South Africa that require aid to access the correct coaching and facilities. Muako endeavors to attract the appropriate private funding to help reach young minds and harness young talent with the objective of making use of the immense talent found within our country.
