The experience of the Siyakholwa leadership team spans many years and the team has developed a reputation for executing projects effectively and getting the job done.

Each entity (Siyakholwa Development Foundation, Networx Training Foundation and Qobo Qobo), although registered non-profits with their own Directors are bound together firstly through relationship, and secondly through a Memorandum of Understanding that is also written into each constitution.

Leadership, from our perspective, is about influence and servanthood and we prefer a team approach where everyone is aligned and working within their passions.

Currently, the Siyakholwa group, across all their companies and projects employ over 80 people at 10 Sites spanning the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, as well as Gauteng. Our administrative hub serving the companies both administratively and financially is based in East London. Our satellite offices where we implement our projects are situated in Keiskammahoek, Grahamstown, Somerset East, Graaf Reinet, Jansenville, Sundays River, Koukamma, Bavians, Delft (Cape Town) and Muldersdrift (Gauteng). Over 7500 people are being reached through the 7 projects.

On a day to day basis the team is managed by the executive team comprised of Odwa Njoba, Greg & Dale Eland, Dumisani Peter and Tafara Shuro.
