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).

I am a 19-year-old from Lentegeur, Mitchell’s Plain. I was raised by a big family who continue to support and motivate me in things I partake in. My hobbies are reading, acting, swimming and resciting and writing poems. My passion is Dramatic Artsit is part of my life and of who I am.

I attended Cedar High School of Arts, and am now in my first year at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, studying Public Relations Management.

After I get my diploma I would love to go into the media field, as a writer or somewhere in the line of communications. I had the opportunity of working for the annual Cape Town Jazz Festival, and this gave me an insight into the media industry. I cannot wait to kick off my career!

My mother is unemployed, so in that sense the bursary from MPBRMT assisted me financially. The fact that I am a recipient of the bursary shows me that there is hope for learners from underprivileged areas to study. I am thankful to the bursary Trustees for continuously motivating us and encouraging us to stay focused.

The bursary makes a huge difference in my life because I always worried how I would pay for my tuition fees, and it has assisted in resolving that problem. A big thanks goes out to the MPBRMT and Trustees, because now I am the first person in my family to study further. After the bursary pays out, I would like to get a part-time job to pay the funds I owe.
