AFRICAN SCHOLARS FUND
South Africa is one of many countries globally, faced with a high youth unemployment rate. We expect the best from the young people in our country, but their socio-economic conditions make it very difficult for them to remain in, let alone excel, at school. We then expect them to reach and succeed at a tertiary educational level, which brings further challenges of accessibility and affordability.
The Fund helps empower our youth that struggle financially by providing them with the means to contribute towards their school fees, school uniform, transport and other basic school needs. We nurture, motivate, mentor, care for and support our bursars until they have completed their basic education. We are completely focused on the wellbeing of our bursars. We monitor and comment on their schoolwork and their progress. Contact with our bursars is regular, ongoing and constructive.
