My name is Sthembile Shange from Hammarsdale I am a 4th year student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal Edgewood Campus. I was admitted in 2016 but had to dropout in 2018 after I was raped late 2017. 

I attended counseling and stuff but was still failing at school because I could not let go of the psst traumas. When I was not studying I would look for jobs and enrolled on the 3 phases of Educational Assistant/Teacher Assistant posts where I saved money to pay for my readmission and registration fee from when I go back to University. 

Luckily I was admitted back in 2022 at the University as a second year student under the new syllabus of New B Ed because the old syllabus was to be phased out in 2023. I passed 90% of my modules and failed only 1 (Geography). 

I was unfortunately defunded by NSFAS in June 2023 just before the commencement of Teaching Practicals. I got assistance from my fellow 3-year-students who helped me by raising funds to assist me at least raise money for transport to the school where I was practicing. I used to call NSFAS and UKZN Funding offices everyday of my practicals trying to fix the defending issues after I received no assistance from the student leaders (SRC). I managed to fix the issue of funding all my own and received my funding.

This time around I passed ALL my modules and even got a merit and my academic performance changed from RED (at risk) straight to green (good academic standing). Unfortunately I again have been defunded by NSFAS this year. I reapplied and still waiting. 

The issues now is that I have to go for a 3 months Teaching Practicals in early February. I am due to practice at a school in Clermont called Sthengile Secondary School. I will be unable to do my practicals if I have not registered for the year 2024 and more especially I have to go back to Res so I can be closer to the school compared to being in Hammarsdale. 

I am writing to plead with you all to help me raise and pay my registration fee of R4 600.00 so I can at least be able to register for my 4th year (which is my last) and be able to do practicals. For full proof (academic records, registration data, NSFAS status etc) please text me on WhatsApp and/or Call on 0813407577 or inbox me Facebook: S'thembile Sthelenhle MaMtshali Shange
