Personal message

TheSouthAfrican.com is one of the largest digital news publishers in South Africa. We are aware that many journalism students will be facing countless financial and life challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown: Universities and colleges are closed, part-time work opportunities are rare, while tuition fees and loans -- along with daily living expenses -- add further pressure.

We are offering students a chance to earn some much needed #gigforstudents income while building a portfolio, earning practical experience with one of the largest news publishers in South Africa, as well as get exposure for their work and launch their career.

Many of our freelance journalists go on to write for us on an ongoing basis or join the team permanently.

Our vision

1. Provide income for students;
2. Writing experience;
3. Career opportunities; 
4. Portfolio of published work; and
5. Protecting independent journalism

All the funds raised will be used to pay students to write for TheSouthAfrican.com
