Swimming to Ignite Opportunity!

19 Apr 2017


Team TSiBA will be “Swimming to Ignite Opportunity” through education for talented youth by braving the icy Atlantic, jelly-fish and marine ‘wild-life’ to swim 7.5km from Robben Island to Big Bay, Blouberg, in April 2017 -NO wetsuits!

Team TSiBA consists of 8 brave swimmers - the first four will attempt this crossing on Thursday 20 Feb 2017. Please support here on back-a-buddy - any or all of the swimmers - every cent counts.


Our mission is to secure one full-tuition scholarship (R55k) for a TSiBA student to study towards becoming a future SA leader and entrepreneur. TSiBA students are not required to re-pay their scholarships financially – but to Pay it Forward transferring the skills they learn at TSiBA back into their communities.

Founded in 2004, TSiBA Education NPC is a unique, full accredited, non-profit business school whose mission is to provide an educational platform for those who may otherwise have been unable to access tertiary study due to academic, or financial constraints.


The Tertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA) was founded in 2004 with a vision to “Ignite Opportunity”.  Our mission is to be an innovative learning community that graduates entrepreneurial leaders who ignite opportunity and social change.
