Who we are

TSWELA® Services (Pty) Limited was established in 1997 and formed part of the JSE listed Pinnacle Technology Holdings group of companies. They also administered the operations of Ukukhanya Training, subsequently resulting in a merger of the two companies. 

TSWELA® was re-structured in November 2009 to fill the growing demand for software development, computer training and timetable development in the Education Industry. School Management Software, Training and Support Program deliverables were contracted and developed for the Namibian Ministry of Education and the project is still ongoing. 

TSWELA® was re-structured in June 2018 to deliver on sustainable models for holistic education projects in Africa.
