Stepping Stones Children's Centre
Located in Albertus Street, Cape Town, South Africa, is an early childhood development centre which strives to bring the highest standard of education and care to all children, particularly those coming from low income families. As part of our mission, we share all our resources with a variety of disadvantaged educare centres in townships in the greater Cape Town.
The Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy – or Velokhaya for short
Is a not-for-profit organisation based in Khayelitsha, South Africa.
We use our cycling-based programs to involve township youth in a positive, after-school activity. Our aim is to give children from disadvantaged communities the skills and opportunities they need to make a success of their lives. We use the sport of cycling to teach them important life skills such as discipline, determination, dedication, teamwork and how to win and lose . Sport also teaches children about resilience and perseverance; it gives them the opportunity to become physically and emotionally stronger and it also teaches them to strive for excellence, to be gracious in victory and to persevere in defeat. In other words, it help us grow champions on and off the bike.
