Education is a societal issue, and nothing can secure our future better than equipping our young people with quality education and skills. The Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust gives funding to students who should go on to further and tertiary education, but have difficulty in doing so because of finances.
We assist students with registration and/or tuition fees for studies at higher education institutions and Further Education and Training colleges. All of our funds are raised from individuals, corporations and companies of all sizes, and private institutions, as well as an annual Golf Day. Not a cent of Government money has been used.
As Founding Trustee Trevor Manuel says: “Without community mobilisation in support of education, there will be little prospect of placing education at the centre of our collective efforts to confront the scourges of poverty, inequality and the hold which drugs and gangsterism have over the lives of so many.”
We really want and need to assist more learners to access further education, which will result in better educated and productive citizens, ultimately making South Africa a better country for all. See how you can support us.
