Personal message

My name is Abigail Wiese. I am a PhD student in performing arts in Cape Town. I met Letlhogonolo Magoro when I taught her as a first-year student at UWC at the beginning of 2020 for a humanities course. She is from Gauteng. Her father passed away in 2019 and her mother is unemployed. She is currently supported by her Grandmother, who in turn lives off her state pension. She has a small scholarship from UWC that does not even cover her tuition fees which means she is incurring significant debt while studying in South Africa.

Letlhogonolo attended Prestige College, Gauteng on a sports scholarship where she matriculated in 2017. In 2018 she was offered a full sports scholarship to study at Monroe College in New York due to her athletic prowess as a middle-distance athlete. Unfortunately, at the time she could not manage to raise sufficient funds to cover her transport costs to the USA to take up the scholarship and this rare opportunity passed her by. Letlhogonolo did not let that stop her and kept applying. She has managed to get offered another full sports scholarship at New Mexico Junior College, New Mexico to study Business science. She has been awarded a two year bursary $15,720 (R260,000) but needs to pay for her flights, visa and some money to cover miscellaneous expenses (R60,000). (The scholarship includes boarding, all meals, tuition fees and a book allowance).

By being able to study debt-free abroad, whilst competing as a high-level athlete, Letlhogonolo will have the opportunity to break from the poverty cycle she lived in.

The funds need to be raised by end November 2020 will be used for:

Visa (R8500)

Flight (R23 000)

Transport to and from embassy for Visa application and in the USA (R5000)

Miscellaneous expenses until she can find employment on campus (R23 500)
