Leopold van Velden
Founder & CEO at Thuma Mina Teaching


Leopold van Velden has a fervent desire to see a changed education narrative in South Africa. He is an experienced teacher who has taught in both functional and dysfunctional schools, providing him with a unique insight into the challenges of the education system. His passion for developing effective teaching methods led him to create Thuma Mina Teaching: a platform that offers high-quality teaching materials to reach students who face barriers to accessing resources. Leopold’s mission is to make education more accessible and effective for all learners, particularly those in underperforming schools, while striving to change the low-bar culture of teaching in South Africa
