The Manguzi Edition Route
Passionate about where he comes from, Kwanda Sibiya, the initiator of this drive, is himself a story of perseverance and hope, bringing opportunity and tangible change back to his community. The son of a cabbage farmer, Kwanda’s family struggled to make ends meet. But Kwanda was inspired by a clipping of a Mark Shuttleworth story and dreamed of a career in science. Today, after a long road of perseverance and hard work, Kwanda is a Science teacher and Housemaster at Hilton College. Through this Sport for Lives – Manguzi Edition, he hopes to raise enough money to support, educate and mentor two Manguzi orphaned children, ages 5 and 6, for one year . Additional funds raised will be directed to the Kolisi Foundation.
