Our Heritage

The Genesis of Regenesys

The Regenesys journey began in 1998 when Dr Marko Saravanja, Dr Penny Law and Mr William Vivian came together for the purpose of human development through education. They started with nothing but an idea and a vision.

Our founder Dr Saravanja, a former monk, came to South Africa from Croatia without any possessions except his orange robes and a passion to change the world. After years of successful humanitarian pursuits, he went on to study and then work at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits). He left the university in 1998 to start Regenesys in the quest to awaken human potential and make the world a better place to live.

Regenesys initially operated from a tiny office in the Johannesburg suburb of Killarney, and the first training programme with 20 participants was delivered in a church 1999. The Regenesys footprint has since spread, from these humble beginnings, to having state-of-the-art campuses in South Africa, India and Nigeria.

In our  journey, we have achieved several milestones, highlighted below.

Regenesys Foundation: An important step in this journey was the formation of Regenesys Foundation. The Foundation is based on the philosophy that access to quality education is a fundamental human right, and that education provides a powerful tool to address the socio-economic problems faced by the world, including poverty, unemployment and crime. Free education, financial aid and scholarships are some of the initiatives of the Regenesys Foundation.
