Like many VisaHQ customers, Thabani Sithole leads a fascinating life.

Passionate about sports, education, and social entrepreneurship advocacy, Thabani travels the world to help college athletes develop their carriers. Mr. Sithole is the Co-Founder of the Serve 4 Africa Foundation, which oversees the development of high-performance tennis in Africa and provides opportunities for underprivileged youth, with a focus on education.

Thanks to Victoria and VisaHQ, Mr. Sithole managed to deliver a remarkably well-received talk at an athlete convention in Cairo.

I look forward to getting my visa organized by VisaHQ again for my next trip!”
