Training for Tertiary Studies

This project is raising funds to cover tuition for Simphiwe Ndlovu, currently enrolled at the University of the Witwatersrand in a BSc in Corporate Finance and Mathematics. He achieved distinctions in his first year in Algebra, Calculus, Accounts, and Economics, and is working to complete his second year.
Simphiwe grew up in Alexandra. He lost his parents before he was 6 years old and grew up in a household of men, parented by his grandfather. He matriculated in the 2020 Covid year, with distinctions in 5 subjects including Maths, Accounting and Physical Science.
