Ntebaleng Maruping is one of the students at Thuto Lesedi School whose education has been funded for the last few years by Thuso’s Sponsorship Scheme. We have received the brilliant news that she has gained a place at Vaal University of Technology to study Tourism Management. We are delighted with her success! She is the first of our sponsored students to go on to University and we hope that with your help in funding children through school there will be many more of the Thuto Lesedi students moving on to tertiary education.
Vaal University is situated not far from Vereeniging in Gauteng Province and is 50 kilometres from Johannesburg. It attracts students from all over South Africa, and currently has 17,000 students. The campus is huge and modern and has excellent teaching and sporting facilities. There is an emphasis on career- focused diplomas and degrees and many programmes include practical experience.
We are very pleased to be able to help Ntebaleng with the cost of fees, accommodation and books etc from our general fundraising account and wish her every success in the future.
