From left to the right: Buhle Mashiyi is starting a 5 year Bachelor of Law, Zintle Mtakati has been enrolled for a Baccalaureus of Social Sciences Extended programme in Human and Societal Dynamics, Cebisa Mtyhobile is studying a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Social Work and Simphiwe Simo enrolled for the Baccalaureus degree in Social sciences in Nursing.

The first 2 students, Zintle and Buhle, has been part of the programme since 2008 and concretise their dreams in studying Social sciences and Law. Cebisa and Simphiwe have been previously selected and interviewed by Masiphumelele Corporation to access a bursary.

None of this would have happened if Professor Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Free State, hadn’t promised to accommodate 4 students with full-bursaries. All the IkamvaYouth team is very grateful. Thank you very much for these awesome opportunities.

We look forward to all four of you reaching your career goals, thanks to studying at UFS. You make us feel proud!
