Havny Manzini

Havny Manzini’s dream never slows down. That’s why we love him.

Havny was part of the first class of learners at Madlala Digital Learning Centre to complete the International Computer Drivers License (ICDL). Today not only is Havny a full-time ICDL instructor at Madlala, but he has also opened a satellite digital learning centre in his garage in the rural village of Lilleydale.

In this 5 x 3 meter space, Havny provides digital literacy classes to students who cannot make it all the way to Madlala.

“I love to teach” says Havny. “When you are teaching people how to use a computer for the first time, you cannot just stick to the syllabus. First, you have to help the student ‘make friends’ with the mouse and keyboard. That’s fundamental and – for me – one of the most rewarding parts of this job.”

Outside of work Havny is part of a band called “The Mighty Ducks”. The band performs at local gigs in and around Hazyview and have even produced their own album.

In the long term it is Havny’s dream to become a music producer or a graphic designer. We have no doubt that this talented and dedicated young man will get there.
