Velokhaya arose out of the Life Cycling Academy (LCA), an organisation founded in 2003 by former postman Amos Ziqubu and gym owner Glyn Broomberg. Through the LCA, the pair planned to motivate children living in disadvantaged communities and help them acquire respect and status, craved by many young people, through healthy means rather than crime. Main Activities: At the Velokhaya BMX Oval, opened in the township in 2008, over 60 youngsters have a safe environment in which to practise their moves. The oval’s buildings, which include a club house, office and commentary box, were constructed from recycled shipping containers donated by Safmarine. Volunteer tasks: Assisting with the cycling programs, Assisting to develop a leadership skills based training program, Assisting with the Nutrition and Healthy lifestyle program, Work alongside local staff and volunteers in organizational development, marketing and fund raising.
