The management team and all employees of Velisa Africa Academy have in common their enormous passion, love and devotion towards their families and for their relationships with others. This, in turn, radiates through their work and commitment to grow and nurture the learners that come through the Academy and the customers and partners that work with the Academy.

There is an overwhelming and shared sense of dedication and zeal among the Velisa Africa team to improve the level of education in South Africa and to be a part of a real and dramatic change in the lives of the South African youth and all South Africa’s people.
