I believe that women are the backbone of society and that by empowering women, the resulting benefits have the capacity to enable greater economic and social transformation. Considering the South African context, where the supply of valuable resources remains unmatched by the corresponding skills, there is heavy reliance on the emergence of female entrepreneurship to stimulate progress.
Therefore as an individual, passionate about releasing untapped potential, I am determined to further my studies with a Masters in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management. With this qualification, I will be better equipped to contribute towards solving complex issues that dominate our communities.
Thankfully the step of my journey has been successful in that I have been admitted into a Master’s program from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, this program runs over a full year, starting September 2018. With my admission confirmed, I now face the challenge of securing funding within the upcoming 3 months, in order to make my ambitions a reality. Given that my scholarship applications have not yielded positives results, I am reaching out to the community at large for support.
The funding requirements are as follows:
1. Tuition (R250000 – 50% due 31/05/2018)
2. Flights and visa (R23000)
3. 1 year living expenses (R156000)
As the saying goes, “when you empower a women, you empower a nation”. This proverb truly echoes the impact that your contribution would have towards my studies.
I sincerely appreciate your attention.
