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).

Thalea Smidt

I am Thalea Smidt and grew up in Strandfontein Village, and attended Wavecrest Primary in Rocklands, and Muizenberg High School. I’m doing my Honours in BSc Plant Sciences – Plant Pathology at the University of Pretoria. Early in 2018 I graduated with a BSc Biotechnology degree from the University of the Western Cape (UWC).

Receiving the bursary from the Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust means a lot to me, and I will forever be grateful. The Trust granted me the chance to believe in myself more. The trust still plays a huge part in my education. The assistance given by the trust is immense and one day I will repay their investment in me.

Next year I plan to study further and continue my football journey. I would like to represent the national team again and then after pursue my career in science. I do hope one day to become Dr Thalea Smidt.
