This Tuition Fees Fund is aimed at raising education tuition fees for the winners of the Ms Tertiary SA pageant (formerly Miss Tertiary SA). The initiative is a response to the #FeesMustFall movement that highlighted the heightening number of financially excluded students in colleges and universities across South Africa, resulting to increasing youth unemployment and contributing to poverty and crime (please see conversations about the movement on Twitter: #FeesMustFall).
We are also responding to the alarming rate of depression and anxiety among students and doing awareness workshops that educate about mental health and how one can receive help as self harm is hightening to victims.
Your contribution of any amount to our initiative would make a huge difference and positively impact many lives. Thank you so much.
