WATCH: Young businessman pledges R50 000 for Gugulethu pupils’ studies
A young, aspiring businessman from Gugulethu has pledged R50 000 towards assisting pupils from four high schools in Gugulethu pursuing studies of their choice at any tertiary institution.
Liyanda Handula has also called on other business people and alumni of four Gugulethu schools to lend a hand. The donation will ensure needy students from the class of 2018 get the financial support they need to kick-start their careers at any tertiary institution in 2019.
Handula’s pledge culminates from a successful two-day youth summit held at Intshukumo Comprehensive School in Gugulethu late in July that formed part of the Gugulethu 60th anniversary celebrations.
Handula said being born in Gugulethu he has observed that the majority of people outside Gugulethu are not making a difference in the area.
“We would normally convene during the festive season to exchange ideas and give constructive advice to one another. We all wish to make a contribution, add value and in so doing bring positive change to the lives of our beloved community,” he said.
