Sivuyile joined the songo.info team in the last quarter of 2011 to become the new BMX coach on the songo.info program. It has been remarkable to see how Svig took on the role of coach, growing from strength to strength. He has come such a long way in a short time, sorting out the BMX container, putting structure to the BMX training program and learning coaching skills from Swen Lauer. In addition he has been spending his mornings at Recycles to learn mechanical skills so he can help with the maintenance of the BMX bikes. To say that he is a superstar is an understatement and the little kids, they really love him!
Bongani is a mountain biker on the songo.info team that has grown into a mechanic for the BMX team and the mountain bikers. He has accompanied the songo.info team on the Cape Epic and learnt great skills from Dylan van der Merwe, mechanic at Specialized, and the team at BMT where he works twice a week. Bongani takes great care of all the bikes on the songo.info program.
It all started out with Songo Fipaza's dream to provide children of Kayamandi with opportunities and a fun and safe place to grow up away from the troubles on township streets. Songo is an exceptional role model for everyone as he works tirelessly in the community to create opportunities for the children. His dream has come a long way over the years where the BMX club and mountain biking group are fully established, participating in numerous events in the Western Cape, and across South Africa. We are all so privileged to work, learn and interact with Songo Fipaza. He demonstrates actions that dreams are possible to achieve.
