Today is the second day since the commencement of 2019 NSFAS applications, on its pillars towards student activism SASCO has community work and we hold a strong view that we are community members before we are students and it is always paramount to engage with communities, for we believe that it is important to commit ourselves in to serving, suffer and sacrifice for our brothers and sisters who wish to apply both for Admission to University and the Funding of their studies.
SASCO is calling upon its structures to go to communities with an aim to assist learners/prospective students who will soon be our members, with the aims to provide guidance to grade 12 learners on how they should apply for NSFAS and other related bursaries, to expand and enhance opportunities that will provide assistance and information to underserved communities and mostly disadvantaged schools, and lastly inspire hope and action through encouragement that the doors of learning are opened.
