Good Day 

My name is Washiela Williams and the reason I started this campaign is because I am a student at Unisa and am in need of your help to secure funds to pay for my studies. 


I started studying in 2012 and then in 2013 I could not continue my degree in Education foundation phase due to financial difficulty. In 2018 I decided to apply for funding at NSFAS and reapply through Unisa and was accepted and got the bursary. Everything went well as my studies has been paid for 2018,2019,2020 and continued to pass all my modules. I was so proud of myself as I would be the first child in my family that would be graduating from tertiary school,as my parents could not afford to send me or my three brothers to university. 


In 2021 NSFAS did not to fund me and unfortunately this was the same time I was retrenched when our company closed down due to covid pandemic.That year I did not have money for books,internet data,a computer or any money for travelling. I visited different libraries to find the prescribed books and use the their computers,I had to use my phone to write exam as Unisa's exams were all online. I was not about to give up because I knew I had to finish my degree. 


I passed all my modules in 2021 however the outstanding fees for 2021 reappeared as outstanding on my student account. Then in 2022 I was funded again. I finished my degree end of 2022 however due to the outstaning balance I am unable to graduate.

UNISA stated that I was liable for the outstanding 2021 balance on my account and advised that if I do not pay the fees I will not be able to graduate. I am not working full-time and I can't apply for a full time teachers position without my qualification. 

This is why I am asking for help as I just need enough to pay the balance on my student account so I can graduate and find a job to provide a better life for family. 

Lastly my husband Lucien Williams will be walking the 600km from Cape Town to George to assist us in the fundraising, please follow his journey on @lucienswalk on Instagram or Lucien's walk on Facebook. 

Thanking you in advance

Washiela Williams
