My name is Thembelihle and I matriculated in 2018 and got a Bachelors pass with 1 distinction. I got accepted into NWU (North West University), to study BCom (Human Resources Management), However, I do not have the funds to do so.
My dad got retrenched so my mom is the one that works and she hardly earns much. Her salary is all spent on basic grocery for a family of 5 and transportation.
I know what you are probably thinking “...Why didn't I apply for NSFAS?” Well I would have but I don't qualify since I'm not a South African citizen. I'm a foreigner using an Asylum Seeker Permit and most companies do not offer bursaries or scholarships to foreigners. So I have no one to turn to.
Registration is on the 21st of January 2020 and I'm afraid my parents would have not been able to raise that amount of money when the day comes. Attached is my statement of results and proof that NWU accepted me. The money includes registration, tuition fees for the whole year, accommodation, food, transport and groceries for the whole year.
I really want to go to university to make something of myself and make my parents proud I would really appreciate it if you'd kindly donate.
