Megan Nellis wrote -University loans from the government kick in three months AFTER university begins. Even though students who apply for the loans have no means to support themselves, they are still expected to cover their first three months of expenses on their own. This is a HUGE contributing factor to youth from our community not being able to go to university. Thus I'm trying to change that for Mr Simphiwe - one of our Imagine Scholars! Here's what I'm trying to get covered for him: - Bus Fare to Johannesburg ($45) = $45 - 3 months of Rent ($100 per month) = $300 - 3 months of food money ($40) = $120 - Textbooks and stationary = $65 TOTAL = $530 to make his dream a reality!
