Negotiating transformation, providing opportunity and encouraging people to grow is a passion that has driven Sandile for more than 10 years.
He also spent a number of years engaging communities on the transformation of the mind and heart in the matter of race relations, education inequality, social and economic class structures and bridging the gap between these groups.
He managed “Heart to Heart International”, a community development, school support and social outreach non-profit organisation for a number of years.
Sandile’s continual insight into transitioning a traditional “Africa” mind-set to a westernised, time & logic-based, approach to education has proven invaluable. He actively engages in local solutions and recently completed the Local Economic Development (LED) course driven by UKZN.
Sandile is also passionate about engaging Kingdom leaders that are making a difference.
