Who we are

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela

The LumoHawk Foundation is a non-profit charity organisation which supports the educational needs, and at times the sporting needs too, of previously disadvantaged children and their communities in South Africa. In doing so, the Foundation aspires to give opportunity and hope to the leaders of tomorrow.

Although the fundraising began back 2010, the actual LumoHawk Foundation was only formalised in 2013 by Joel Stransky to raise funds for underprivileged children, with a focus on educational and sporting needs. Through his dedicated efforts and the unbelievable generosity of many sponsors and athletes, the Foundation continues to grow from strength to strength.
