The Paul Mthimunye Bursary Fund was created to help poor and talented students in Steve Tshwete Local Municipality, Mpumalanga, South Africa. The fund assists students in high school and college who want to study subjects like Math, Science, Accounting, Engineering, Law, and other subjects that are in demand for jobs. Since it started in 2005, the fund has helped more than 200 high school students and over 100 college students.
The Paul Mthimunye Bursary Fund helps students who don't have enough money for school in Steve Tshwete, Mpumalanga. We support students studying subjects like Math, Science, Accounting, Engineering, Law, and others that are good for finding jobs.
Mr. M.J. Mahlangu, who leads the National Council of Provinces, is in charge of our fundraising. We started helping college students in 2005. So far, 24 students finished college in fields like Engineering, Accounting, IT, and Medicine. Out of them, 20 got jobs, and the rest will probably get jobs soon because they have valuable skills.
This year, we're helping 60 high school students and 13 college students. To keep doing this, we need donations to cover the rising costs of supporting college students.
We're thankful for the support from businesses, people in the community, Steve Tshwete Local Municipality, and Mpumalanga Provincial Education Department. Your help is really important in our mission to fix the lack of skilled workers in our country.
