Matthew Mhlaleki speaks to SABC 2 programme TalkSA about how IkamvaYouth helped him improve his marks and get into university.
When Matthew joined IkamvaYouth he had 45% for maths and 43% for physics and needed to jump at least three symbols to pursue his desire to study engineering in 2011. After two years with IkamvaYouth and countless hours of tutoring and midweek sessions, Matthew achieved Bs in both maths and physics in his final exams.
In recognition of his achievements, he has also been awarded a bursary from Schneider-Electric to study Electrical Engineering at Wits this year.
Watch the clip below for a brief insight into how Matthew and ikamvaYouth made it happen.
PS. Schneider-Electric also donated kit-bags to our new 2011 IkamvaYouth cohorts in the expectation that there will be many more Matthew-type-stories in the years to come. Once again a big thank you to Schneider-Electric for their continued support.
