My name is Malindi Ngubane a 23-year-old student, originally from a small township in Mabopane called Winterveldt but currently based in Hatfield as I'm studying at the University of Pretoria, I am currently doing my third year in Industrial Sociology and Labor studies.
I am asking for fundraising to cover my meal allowance and outstanding fees as my current bursary only covered accommodation and tuition. As a student, it is very difficult to study on an empty stomach and with the hopelessness of whether you will be able to graduate or not due to outstanding fees.
Being raised by a single mother who has to support eight kids on her own has not been easy as she is unemployed and only relies on government grant of my 3 younger siblings at the moment she is only able to send me R600 every month and it is very hard to get by with this amount as I can not afford to buy both toiletries and food to last me for the whole month. I am pleading with every person to please help with any donations that you can so I can afford to buy enough food and pay off my outstanding fees and also help pay for my little sister's application fee as she is currently in matric
As I need meals immediately but for the outstanding fees it can be up to October 2019.
Funds raised will be used for
The donations will help relieve a student from hunger and the burden of outstanding fees which may impact how I perform academically and also help relieve my Mom from stress. Poverty is real and a big concern for students as it can a person's health both physically and mentally.
*Funds raised will be transferred directly into the Student's meal account and to the University of Pretoria towards Outstanding fees*
