MEANING OF AKUKHANYA
UkukhanYa means LIGHT.
AkukhanYa has been derived from the Sotho word UkukhanYa. Our vision is to shine a light on possibilities, is to bring light into people's lives through educational initiatives that are life-changing light bulb moments. There is so much "darkness" in our world, but darkness cannot drive out the light, and when the bulb has been switched on, the light exposes the opportunities & possibilities available to us.
Welcome to the AkukhanYa home. here we form partnerships, associations, network and build innovative training initiatives.

The infinite MINDSET - a long term - never-ending MINDSET
We are NOT interested in a "quick fix education" at AkukhanYa.
We have been in education for more than 30 years (combining our experience within and without AkukhanYa ) and have learned there is no shortcut in education. There is no quick fix. There is no academics only solution.
Here are some excellent resources on the Infinite vs Finite Game (Mindset).

CONNECT WITH US
The AkukhanYa blog has been a bit of a hit and miss over the years. Mostly because we have been evolving and changing within the organisation and therefore kept on restarting with our changed status.
We have settled into a very workable and scaleable organism and are recommitting to our blog and sharing our story and information with you.
We will also share it on all our Social Media platforms. So you can follow us on any platform you choose to.
