When life takes away one sense, it often compensates with extraordinary strength in others. For Hein Wagner, born blind, his vision extends far beyond the physical world —it's a vision of limitless potential and boundless opportunities.

Hein Wagner is a global adventurer, motivational speaker, corporate entertainer and founder of the Hein Wagner Academy

The academy offers blind and visually impaired students training in cybersecurity. The faculty comprises highly skilled and specialized trainers dedicated to providing tailored education that meets the unique needs of their students. Courses range from Microsoft Office-based short courses to full-time certificate programs and an intensive two-year Cyber Security program.

LottoStar made a generous donation of R1 Million to the academy to help, support and empower the visually impaired community.

In 2019, Hein's dream to uplift and empower the blind community materialized with the founding of the Hein Wagner Academy in Worcester, Cape Town that specializies in post-graduate training for the blind and visually impaired. The need for the institution became apparent after the closure of the Department for Career Development in 2018, leaving a void that Hein passionately sought to fill.

The success of the academy is evident in the accomplishments of its graduates, with many securing positions in cybersecurity at leading organizations like Absa. These success stories underscore the academy's mission which is to transform lives through education, enabling visually impaired individuals to achieve economic independence and social connectivity.

LottoStar hopes that the donation will further assist with the running costs of the facility at the academy.
