Our Vision & Mission

to change lives for the better

The Kwano Academy was established to assist in a tough community environment, with few positive role models, where the formal education system does not prepare youth for the “real world” and limited extramural activities exist.


To combine education and cycling. To coach young talent, using a common set of values and life skills to produce more employable graduates.


To deliver three key programs. These programs are: After School Academic Program, Post High School Training and Cycling Program.


We instill simple values of Integrity, Accountability, Commitment and Respect, which form the foundation of the Academy.

Growing life skills for the future


Our student's matric pass rate over the past 4 years

The percentage of board directors that are volunteers



Over the past years Kwano Academy has positively impacted the lives of many youngsters. We share the success stories of some of our students.
