Mashawana started the Collen Mashawana Foundation, which is an African-based and -funded NGO dedicated to creating jobs for the youth. The organisation prioritises improving education and employment with the hopes of eradicating poverty in the country, Briefly.co.za found.

“We continue to challenge you to do whatever is possible or within your ability to change the next person's life who is less advantaged. You don’t need to have much but believe me the little you will do for those that do not have will be a lot,” wrote Mashaba on social media.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Mashawana helped build a 3-bedroom home for a 101-year-old grandmother and a new home for a SANDF veteran and his family. Today, Mashawana shared that he would provide a new home for a grandmother and her grandchildren, after their house sustained serious damage in a storm.
