WHO WE ARE:
Founded in January 2019 by blind Adventurer and Motivational Speaker Hein Wagner, the Hein Wagner Academy based in Worcester, South Africa prides itself on and is dedicated to enabling the visually impaired to reach their full potential through education, training, sport, recreation, and the arts.
WHAT WE DO:
The Hein Wagner Academy offers a wide variety of National and Internationally Accredited Tertiary courses offered through the Higher Education and training system to fully educate and equip visually impaired individuals as they enter the working environment.
Hein Wagner Academy currently has a B-BBEE LEVEL 1 Status with more than 75% of the current 36 students being B-BBEE beneficiaries.
To enable the visually impaired to become economically independent and socially connected through education, training, sports, recreation, and the arts.
To bridge the gap between being dependent and being independent for the visually impaired by providing specialised training in an environment focusing on the needs and development of persons living with visual loss.
We promise to take you from as far as your fingers can reach to as far as you dare to dream. We will enable you to be the inspiration the world so desperately needs by supporting you to reach your full potential.
