#SupportARefugeeStudent fundraising campaign has been initiated by the Umoja Development Foundation (UDF), the initiative is to raise fund in order to support access to higher education for a number of refugees children from the Kivu Community that lives here in South Africa. We have a huge number of these children that thus they completed their high schools or grade 12 matriculations, many find it difficult to pursue higher education or University due mainly to financial constraint.
It’s estimated that about 80% refugees and asylum seekers that successfully complete their high school can't continue further mainly due to lack of funds and access to available scholarships opportunities; as most of available private and Government bursaries / scholarships are mostly reserved to South African Citizen. In previous year, few bursary opportunities were also available refugees children at some institutions, but with the #FeesMustFall protests in recently, these doors were totally closed; shutting many dreams and leaving many lives to their own mercy!
Let's join the campaign, support, donate and change someone's live, change a refugee / asylum seeker's life, help to make these vulnerable children dreams and their hope for a better tomorrow alive!
We believe that parents are not only those that can save life, but also those that support and educate it.
Your generosity and good hearts can go a long way to assisting to shape someone's future. It takes a village to raise a child!!!!
Support education of a refugee child from Kivu, support education, save a life, be generous!
