Our real impact is best told through the stories of individuals who journey with us, as the following examples illustrate:
Luvuyo Rani, Founder of Silulo Ulutho
Luvuyo Rani and his brother, Lonwabo Rani, found a revolutionary way to provide IT services to the townships of South Africa. Founded in 2004 as a single internet café in the Western Cape’s Khayelitsha Township, Silulo Ulutho Technology (“Silulo”) means “we bring value through technology”. In six years, Silulo has grown from a single internet café to a US$0.5 million company that offers computer training courses, internet café and business center services, and IT retail and repair. In the process the brothers have matured from two township kids selling refurbished computers out of their truck, to nationally recognized businessmen and role models.
Silulo began working with the TSiBA Ignition Centre to draft his very first business plan! Today, he employs 65 people in 18 stores across seven Western Cape townships, affording access to IT training and services for thousands of residents of these communities.
