Andile Mpisane Pledges R200,000 Towards Students’ University Fees. A growing number of our celebrities are coming through for students struggling to continue with their studies due to financial constraints. Just the other day, Lasizwe started a powerful campaign to raise funds towards students fees. The YouTuber and reality star,started a R10 Goes A Long Way campaign where he requested people to donate R10 to help raise funds for the Fees Must Fall WITS students who are struggling to register for 2021 due to unpaid fees from previous years. The campaign has raised half a whooping 1million rand in 2 and a half days, ad still going strong.
Another celebrity, Andile Mpisane has stepped in to do his part in assisting struggling students. The Royal AM FC chairman, singer and football player, who recently celebrated his 20th birthday, has decided to give back in a big way. Andile is always making headlines for all the wrong reasons, but this time around he warmed the hearts of many. Instead of going all extravagant for his birthday, Andile will be gifting 20 university students that have recurring debt from 2020 with R10 000 towards their fees.
“Today marks my 20th birthday and reaching this milestone has me reflecting on my life and how blessed I have been. Growing up requires one to look at things differently. As a young chairman my focus has been on seeing team @royalam_fc grow but we cannot neglect the difficult year we’ve had because of COVID as it has resulted with many people being left unemployed and in unfavorable financial situations. In light of the current #FeesMustFall situation and in celebration of my 20th birthday this year I would like to give back by gifting 20 university students that have recurring debt from 2020 with R10 000 towards their fees. You can also nominate someone in need of this financial aid,” Andile said.
All funds will be paid directly to the registered institution. If you could use this assistance, the time to apply is now, because the closing date for submissions is o the 27th of March 2021. To those who would like to donate towards Andile’s initiative, you can send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
