Fatima lived in the Milnerton area and the only income for her family came from her mother’s disability grant. We helped her to complete her schooling and she gained an excellent Matric pass. Then we arranged bursaries for her, through TECSAT, so that she could study Financial Management at the FET college in Muizenberg.
She was so poor that she needed bus money not only for college, but even for the first interviews – and some shoes! Two years later she was one of the top students at the college. It is no wonder that she was snapped up by one of the major chain stores to work in their Head Office.
