Zwel Kids Club is most known for the successful bicycle club that has been featured on ETV and other national news outlets. They have an annual Zwel Challenge, which is a mountain bike event that involves the children, the local community and larger Nelspruit and White River communities. There are other activities for the children as well. The Curro Nelspruit Chess Club has invited the Zwel Kids to join them in a chess competition.  The Chess Club has spent time training the kids to prepare them for the tournament. There has also been programmes implemented through YE (Young Entrepreneurs) to teach the kids basic business skills through crafts. Zwel kids is currently looking for a new location that will serve their needs better into the future.
