In 2016, Dr Judy Dlamini, and I co-founded Sifiso Learning Group. It has been our dream to meaningfully contribute to the African education landscape. Sifiso Learning Group is the realisation of this dream! Our group offers a holistic, dynamic, technology enabled and student-centric approach to education. Through our Future Nation Schools, our goal is to equip our students with problem-solving, leadership and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge they will need to innovate, lead and fulfil their potential in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Through Sifiso Education Properties, we have developed and are continuing to build school properties that are designed to stimulate learning. Under Sifiso EdTech we are developing educational technologies and we are developing indigenous academic and leisure content through Sifiso Publishers.

The Future Nation Schools Book Fair and Literary Festival is an all-day event with other reputable speakers and will also include various partners and stakeholders in the education and publishing space. The aim of our Future Nation Schools Book Fair and Literary Festival will be to showcase African literature, writers, poetry and arts, especially given that September is Heritage Month in South Africa. This feeds into the Future Nation Schools vision of spearheading the African education revolution through driving content that is relevant to the continent.
