Vusi in action

Vusi's personal vision: to strive to become a catalyst for social transformation

Like many young South Africans, Vusi Kweyama experienc-ed challenges while growing up. He lacked necessary resources to help him secure a promising future, while he was challenged by many of the usual obstacles that inundate black communities today amidst the historical backdrop of apartheid.

However, what distinguishes Vusi from others (some of whom have lost their lives in their daily struggle to make ends meet), Vusi not only managed to survive the hardship of growing up without basic necessities, he now helps many others do the same.

Vusi dropped out of school due to youthful irresponsibility; later, at the age of 26, he studied hard and graduated from the 12th grade. Thereafter, he's become a well-known Durban-based social entrepreneur, a founder of not-for-profit organisations in KwaNyuswa, Durban. In 2012, Vusi graduated from Monash University (South Africa) where he majored in criminology and international studies; in 2013, he earned a Masters of Science in victimology and criminal justice at Tilburg University (the Netherlands). Currently, Vusi pursues his Doctorate Degree studies in transitional justice at the University of KwaZulu Natal (South Africa).

An acclaimed motivational speaker, Vusi gives inspirational talks and facilitates strategy development for corporations and not-for-profit organisations. He's toured medium- and maximum-security prisons across South Africa and in the United States, speaking to offenders and motivating them to seek meaningful and lasting rehabilitation.
