The bridge is a platform for Disadvantaged Grade 12 learners (2019) from Palm ridge secondary school. It connects them to their educational goals, by bridging the gap between the school and post-school education.A bridge where potential meets possibilities. This project aims to help them with application fees and assist them with university and college application fees and processes.
I asked my self: WHY IS THAT? There are bursaries and loans for university/college application funding but there are no funds to assist disadvantaged grade 12 learners with application fees. I asked a few people from our community (Palm ridge) why they never went to tertiary these are some of responses I got:
"I did not have the money to apply because as you know, universities have application fees'' Siyamthanda Zwane
"I had to choose between using the money to apply and my mom buying food for me and my little siblings" Fikile Zuma.
180 grade 12 took a pledge to fetch their life, meaning they have a dream to further their studies, they will do that by walking this journey with the bridge. All learners will assist in raising funds by having a market day at the school. I will raise funds by baking and selling muffins. Your donations will be highly appreciated.
Please help me take a matriculant to university/college.
