The South African Democratic Students Movement (SADESMO) started a campaign on 8 September 2013 where they will be visiting students in rural settlements especially Matrics. They will be providing students with university applications and also be getting in touch with Grade 9 – 11s.
“It deeply concerns us that a lot of students stay at home and don’t study simply because they are not well informed of the grants and other educational aids they can receive to pursue their careers, especially students in rural areas,” said Nonkululeko Nkwanyana, SADESMOs National Academic Officer.
“Because we carry the interests of all the youth of South Africa at heart we begin this campaign with the hope of ensuring that larger numbers access universities next year, as it is imperative that for South Africa to have a brighter future, all students must have a brighter future,” she added.
“We will be assisting grade 9-11s as well with career guidance and preparing the grade 11s for their matric year. We call upon youth who have completed their studies and sit at home to go to the schools we will be visiting as we may be able to assist them as well. We will start this campaign in the Big Five False Bay and Jozini Municipalities and we welcome any interested person who shares in our concern for the future of our youth to join us in this campaign,” she concluded.
