Help Thando go to University!


This is Xoliswa Noluthando Khumalo, but everyone calls her Thando. She is from a farming community in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, and has just arrived in Cape Town to start a Diploma in Hospitality & Food and Beverage Management at Cape Peninsula University of Technology. 

Thando has just arrived in Cape Town to start lectures at the Granger Bay Campus, and for the time being does not have anywhere to stay, and not much left for uniform, textbooks, transport and general living expenses.

This is such a massive opportunity for her as she will be the first in her family to get the chance to attend university, but getting here has certainly not been easy. Her parents have worked unbelievably hard to ensure that Thando has been able to attend, finish and do well throughout her schooling career. 

Thando is so warm, friendly and personable, just like her parents! She is going to excel in the hospitality industry. 

Being so far away from her home and family comes with many challenges for her, but some of them we can help with!

This is how we have broken down the budget:

Text books, stationery & other learning materials for the year: R 2 000

Transport for the year: R 1 200

Uniform for the year: R 2 000

Food and general living expenses: R 24 000

Accommodation deposit: R 10 400

Flight home to see her family for the mid-year break - if we're lucky!
