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).

Merissa Schrikker

My name is Merissa Schrikker. I was born and raised in the colourful Plain. I live with my parents and my twin sister – yes there are two of me. I matriculated at Cedar High School of the Arts where I thoroughly enjoyed expressing myself through Design. Taking the knowledge, values and skills I acquired, I embarked on a journey at Cape Peninsula University of Technology where I pursued a course which would allow me to give back and instil hope, dreams and character in others in the classroom. I am completing my fourth and final year in my Education course and look forward to the challenges ahead. I was given the life-changing opportunity of being funded by the Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust. With the funding I was able to attend class, participate in practicals and examinations without having to worry about the financial constraints that so many others face at university. I was given a hand up towards a better quality of life. My plans are endless. I intend to grow through further studies in various fields so that I can broaden my horizon. I would like to help others in the same way I was helped. To be able to influence, be a beacon of hope and bring others to understand that our dreams are not as far from us as we think.
