Songezo Cycling Academy

Masiphumelele is an overpopulated township with more than 30,000 residents and offers very little recreational opportunities for the youth. Every day they are confronted with rampant crime, drug and alcohol abuse, many other social evils, and their home circumstances are often terrible as unemployment is a huge problem in the area.

The Academy offers the youth population an opportunity to participate in cycling as a much-needed recreational activity and exposes them, through their cycling participation, to higher levels of competition, bicycle maintenance and many general life skills, including support with their education, that help them in their future roles in the labour market.
