Our bank details:

The Mitchells Plain Bursary and role model trust is a South African registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) in terms of both section 30 and 18A of the Income Tax Act. A PBO which is recognised under section 18A is entitled to issue receipts to South African donors under section 18A(2). Armed with those receipts, the donors can treat their donations to the PBO as tax-deductible expenses (thereby effectively only paying sixty (60) percent of the face value of the donation).

Asive Shaun Maqubela

My name is Asive Shaun Maqubela, I am 25-years old and I live in Mandalay. I attended Cornflower Primary School in Lentegeur, from Grade 3. My primary school teachers helped me to apply to the Cape Academy of Mathematics, Science and Technology, which I attended from Grade 10 to 12. I applied to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) to study Industrial Engineering or Mechanical Engineering. My application or Mechanical Engineering was successful. In 2012 I was first-year and I was struggled with the academic pace and living at home because my high school was a boarding school. I am doing my in-service training at Sea Harvest in order to obtain a National Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. I am grateful to be a recipient of the Bursary Trust. When I applied in 2017, I was worried that I would be excluded from university because I could not pay tuition fees. The Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust gave me the opportunity to finish. With work exposure, I am more comfortable working with machinery. My plan for the future is to pursue a career at sea as a marine engineer.
