Lihle Nkohla (21), a third-year Civil Engineering student at Cape Peninsula University of Technology received a bursary in 2015.

“It’s a privilege, especially since I come from an impoverished background in Nyanga. The bursary brings much relief to my family, as financial constraints often place weight on our shoulders. I’m delighted because this bursary covers tuition fees, all prescribed books and material and accommodation and even transport costs,” he said.
