Issue Area(s)


Emanating from a humble background of KwaMashu, Wandile Mthiyane rose each day to contemplate on his dream to change the world. In spite of the immediate battle to fight the endless trend of poverty, he amplified his vision to make a difference by developing an intimacy with education which he believed was the only widget to terminate poverty. His outstanding progress from High School propagated his vision as he was eventually awarded a full tuition scholarship to pursue Architecture at Andrews University. His strive for excellence resulted in his appointment where he currently serves as the President of AIAS at the Andrews School of Architecture. Realizing that Architecture is an excuse to partner with communities in creating a better reality, Mr Mthiyane broadened his realms of influence by Co-Founding Ubuntu Design Group which is aspiring to help people help themselves as far as the accommodation dilemma is concerned. This initiative gave him a platform to be part of the great young minds that attended the 2015 One Young World summit. After a superlative presentation as he represented Ubuntu Design Group he conjugated with Resolution Project where he is now a Resolution Fellow.
