Help me to take a Child to University

Personal message

I have then taken it upon myself to celebrate my birthday by giving back and dedicating this day to raise funds towards  university fees. 

The purpose of my charity birthday is an attempt to raise funds to:
• help four (4) students in matric this year and one (1) student who completed his matric in 2017 who  due to a lack of resources and  unavailability of funds therefore struggled to further his studies. The students have been preselected and to date 3 have been identified and I will be working with the community radio to get 2 more.

The students have been sourced within Soweto and the reason I focused on Soweto was basically to fulfill my birthday wish and give back to a community which I grew up in. I choose not to go the charity route, i.e. approach an existing NGO as I believe that there are so many other children out there that barely benefit. Every day when I drive around Soweto I come across so many bright and intelligent individuals with great potential; however their dreams are cut short due to various reasons ranging from unemployed parents, financial constraints, non-availability of funding for them to further their education and others coming from very disadvantaged backgrounds. This results in a child’s future being squandered and a dream being shattered.

The funds generated will be paid directly towards University of Johannesburg where the students have been accepted.
